The IUTA is proud to present a 2nd World Championship in 2020! Next to the Double Ultra Triathlon in Virginia/USA (October 2020) there will be a Deca Continuous WC in Buchs, Switzerland from 12th to 27th of August. It is the first time after 2014 that two world championships take place in the same year and the first Deca WC since 2006 in Vidauban, France. The current world champions at the Deca Ultra Triathlon are the German Dagmar Großheim and Fabrice Lucas from France. Who will be next? More information at http://www.swissultra.ch.
We have sad news. We can’t recognize the world record of Richard Jung, achieved during the Quintuple UT in Bad Blumau/Austria in July this year, because not all requirements are fulfilled.
We ask you to recognize that the event in Bad Blumau will not be a part of the IUTA series in 2020.
The IUTA World Championship 2020 will take place in Virgina, USA. After the Deca in Hawaii 2004 it is only the 2nd time a WC will be in the United States of America. The Double Ultra Triathlon is dated to 1st until 4th of October 2020. More information will be published soon at http://www.usaultratri.com.
Sad news from USA - the Oregon Double will not take place in July. Below the orginial message:
"Due to a low number of entries this year, we have decided to cancel the 2019 Oregon Double ANVIL race at Henry Hagg Lake. With 3 months remaining until race day, the number of athletes who have committed to participate across all race distances is not enough to provide a competitive field.
The first race in 2019 is close. Next weekend the ultra triathlon world will have a look at the Double Anvil in Clermont Florida. Start is on Friday, 8th March at 7am (New York time); the end after 36 hours cut off time on Saturday at 7pm. About 20 participants signed up for the 281.2 miles at the Lake Louisa State Park. Because there a no clear favorites we hope for an exciting race and will cross our fingers that all are able to get to the finish line and achieve their personal goals.
