LIGHT SATURDAY GIGATHLON
Gigathletes will complete 5 Gigathlon disciplines in approx. half distances of Furious Saturday's courses.
The 5th Gigathlon Czech Republic will be kicked off by swimmers. 1km long round in crystal clear water of the quarry Baraba will be a great refreshing way how to start a day. As a second will get on course inline skaters. They will skate along the river on the cycling path direction Hněvice. After 5 km they will turn back and hit the way opposite direction back to Mělník. Last short part will be going up hill up to the point, where 500 m before the finish line, due to health and safety, inline skaters will have to swap inline skates for the running shoes and run (carrying their skates) the last part to the main square.
Bike team mates will be already waiting on the main square. Bikers will hit the road direction Kokořínsko and dive into the forest. On their 37 km long course they can look forward not only to a quite beautiful nature, but also to some decent technical passages. Fourth on course will get gigathletes in dicsipline road bike on the 43 km long loop across the green foresty area of Kokořínsko. Last but not least will take the burden on their shoulders runners. They will get the most of the city Mělník with 8 km long run down to the confluence of two Czech biggest rivers called Labe and Vltava. A mixture of road and terrain run will be accompanied all the way by a great view over the Mělník castle. They will finish their run as well as the whole new event Light Saturday Gigathlon by crossing the finish line together with their team mates back on the main square in Mělník.
