CHALLENGE KAISERWINKL-WALCHSEE would already organize the 2020 ETU European Championships this year, but due to the coronavirus this could not take place. Next year there will be a new chance and the race will be organized including three different European Championships. While the 2021 Aquathlon European Championships will take place on June 24th, the 2021 Middle Distance European Championshipsand 2021 Aquabike European Championships will take place on June 27th.”CHALLENGE KAISERWINKL-WALCHSEE has always been characterized by the fact that it is a multi-day event and that will only be more in 2021. Not only the fact that there will be several days full of spectacular races, but also the beautiful surroundings, friendly, hospitable people and good accessibility make CHALLENGE KAISERWINKL-WALCHSEE a race for the whole family. For spectators it will be all the more fun now that there will be a battle for the European titles.”

According to Vlam, CHALLENGE KAISERWINKL-WALCHSEE is a perfect host for the 2021 Middle Distance Triathlon, Aquathlon and Aquabike European Championships. “The swim is situated in a lake with crystal clear waters, athletes will ride their bikes through at least as beautiful a landscape between mountains and also the run is dominated by spectacular nature views. We can’t wait to welcome all the athletes here and offer them an unforgettable experience.”
