Most of us will probably have never heard of a small town in Bavaria called Roth, It is located about 25 km south of Nuremberg. However if you are a triathlete you may well have heard of it and aspired to run the arduous triathlon held there each summer known as Challenge Roth. Within hours yesterday the event for 2020 was already fully booked. The event welcomes hundreds and hundreds of volunteers, thousands and thousands of spectators however the most remarkable figures are the amount of entrants including over 3400 individual participants and 650 relay teams from 84 different nations.
This years 2019 event of 3.8km Swim, 180km Bike Ride and 42.2km Run was held on Sunday 7th July and David, always up for pushing himself to the limits of course was one of the entrants and finished in the admirable time of 13hrs 46mins and still had enough energy to join in with the after event party and fireworks.
