Our first discipline in 2018 will be ROAD CYCLING. The cyclists will be honoured to launch a weekend sports challenge by mass start at 6:30 in the morning. They will embark on a varied pilgrimage across the Ústí region from Račice to the surrounding of Most. On the way there is a flattened part of the route through Roudnice nad Labem, around the castle Hazmburk and along the Třebívlice wine region. From there, the route begins to change its profile and competitors will find out that the Central Bohemian Mountains have their hills. The views of the landscape will be really beautiful, the route will take participants around the highest mountain of the region – Milešovka and then will slowly approach the final destination at the Matylda Lake by the city Most, which will become the main logistic centre of Saturday race.

SWIMMING section with a length of 3 kilometres across Matylda Lake will be the second discipline of a day and will be followed by IN-LINE SKATING. A 4 km long loop around Matylda Lake with a very good asphalt surface, will be ridden 7 times by the in-line skaters.

As a third discipline will start their journey MOUNTAIN-BIKERS who will disappear in the forest straight away, where this rather demanding 42 km long track begins. Compared to Sunday’s track is the Saturday’s one quite technical with few single tracks including proper switchbacks on the way. Extreme blast will have bikers who enjoy "surfing the dirty trails". After the round around local peak called Ressel, bikers will hit the road direction Matylda.

The relay will be taken over by the RUNNERS as a last Gigathletes of a day. They can expect an attractive 16 km long track that will bring them up to the castle Hněvín and back to Matylda Lake.

The atmosphere of the first day will culminate on the Matylda Lake by the cheering until the last competitor will reach the finish line.

The logistic of the race will be sorted by the shuttle buses from Matylda and back to the central place Račice. This place will offer a well-deserved rest and energy for another racing day.

The Sunday concept is based on the experience of the first two editions - our goal is that the Gigathlets can enjoy the team spirit as much as possible. The Sunday routes will not be as long and demanding as Saturday's. More emphasis will be placed on the attractiveness and the interesting places on the routes. Shorter distances will be as well very convenient for our fans. The surroundings of Labe Aréna Račice will be properly explored by swimmersin-line skaters and runners. On the other hand the road-bikers will get far to the junction of rivers Labe and Ohře in a historical town called Litoměřice. Mountain-bikers on their wavy route will get to see a local scenic villages as well as colourful fields and forests.

Through the day the Labe Arena Račice will be used like a central starting and final point. All Gigathletes can expect a great atmosphere and an unforgettable sporting experience whether they are on the route as Single, Couple or part of the Team of Five.
