The start of the first “Gigathlon Czech Republic” begins early in the morning with the sunrise. The very first competitors will be the ones who chose to carry the burden of INLINE SKATING >>. The inline route will take them along the fantastic Lipno Dam to Frymburk and back.
Our home-base together with transition areas will be situated in Lipno n.V. in the camp called Modřin (larch). From there starts the second discipline – ROAD CYCLING >>. In total 82 km and 1548 elevation meters is without any doubts the most exhausting part of the day. As a reward for their effort the cyclists get to see on the way the most beautiful city of the southern Bohemia Český Krumlov and the historical castle Rožumberk in its finest.
From the bicycle directly into the water! From Přední Výtoň back to Lipno.n.V! SWIMMING >> is the halfway discipline of the freaky Saturday. Our swimmers will hit the Lipno Dam direction to the home-base with a refreshment point on the charming little island called Králičí ostrov (Rabbit Island).
On the coast will be impatiently waiting ones whose passion goes to MOUNTAIN BIKING >>! One of the most beautiful part of the freaky Saturday leads through the monastery in Vyšší Brod and around the castle Vítkův hrádek, which is the highest located castle in the Czech Republic.
