WHAT IS GIGATHLON...?
Signing up for a Gigathlon lets you challenge your own limits, experience great team spirit or simply live your active lifestyle to the fullest. All in all Gigathlon stands for one big family whose members meet each year with a single passion that unites all: to get the best possible experience out of this sports and social event.
Swimming, inline skating or running? Or do you prefer mountain biking or road cycling? The Gigathlon combines all of these disciplines. During the two competition days all five disciplines have to be completed. It is possible to compete with a handbike instead of inline skates.
A Single man or woman competes in all 5 disciplines on both racing days. To manage this challenge a personal Supporter helps the Single athlete throughout the day.
Two athletes divide the disciplines among themselves. Each day at least two disciplines have to be covered by each team member.
Team of Five
5 athletes compete in the race in a relay. A Team of Five must include at least two women. Each team member competes in one discipline only.
