Athlete's Guide

The early season is when we see inspiring performances from our athletes as they race the longer-distance duathlon events all over Europe. The highlight for us once again will be the ETU-Powerman European Middle Distance Championships, hosted this year by the city of Alsdorf.

The 2020 race will be an important one for many, as they seek to defend their titles won last year in Viborg but for a good number too, this race will be a final test of their fitness ahead of the very first ITU-Powerman Middle Distance Duathlon World Championships, which will be held soon afterwards in Viborg, Denmark.
ETU and Powerman have been working closely together for many years now to promote the challenge of middle-distance duathlon racing and this has naturally fed into the “Big One” at the end of the year in Zofingen, where athletes from all over the world race for the ITU World titles.

I am pleased that the 10k – 60k – 10k format has been recognised by ITU as an event that deserves a place at the table of World Championships and am sure that the support, enthusiasm and positive feedback of so many of our European athletes over the years as they raced around Europe at our Championship events has contributed to this decision.

The race in Alsdorf is a well-established one and has been used by the Deutsche Triathlon Union in the past for its own national championships. The event has been recognised as Germany's biggest duathlon. The LOC is strong and determined and the “easy to get to” location is attractive to athletes from many countries. The team of Technical Officials, led by Thomas Klingler, is a very experienced one, who will ensure that the years' of experience they have built up at our own ETU-Powerman events and in Zofingen, will ensure a safe and fair race.

I would like to extend my thanks to Partick Thevis and his team in Alsdorf and of course to the city authorities without whose continued support we simply could not have events like this on the ETU Race Calendar. Alsdorf is an ancient city, dating back to, I believe, 1191 and I am very happy indeed that such an ancient city will host such a modern, forward-thinking and inclusive sport. I wish everyone a very successful trip to the 2020 ETU-Powerman Alsdorf Middle Distance Duathlon European Championships.

On April 19th, we will set up for the sixth time a duathlon event in Alsdorf. What started in 2015 in a very manageable way will go down in the history books this year with the European Championship as an absolute highlight. We welcome more than 1000 athletes from 20 nations here in Alsdorf. In addition to the athletes from Germany and Europe, we are particularly proud of the many participants from overseas.

Our event is still interesting not only for top athletes and ambitious athletes. Almost 50% of the participants can be assigned to the group of amateur athletes. The sprint distance with 300 participants is still a big part and very important for us, because we want to inspire people for the duathlon sport.

My thanks go to the city of Alsdorf, the many volunteers and the loyal sponsors. My special thanks go to our main sponsors DACHSER Logistics Center Maas-Rhein and Sparkasse Aachen. Without this support, such an event could not be held.

I wish all participants a successful and accident-free competition, and the spectators have a lot of fun watching the race.
