ROTH, Germany (July 20, 2011) - The world’s largest iron distance triathlon, Challenge Roth, has sold out in record time since entries opened this week. First to go were the 500 relay team slots which sold out in just 45 minutes. Within one hour, 1,000 individual entries had been taken with all 3,600 slots sold within 24 hours, the first time the race has filled within just one day.
Triathletes who missed out will have a second chance on 6 December with the special Christmas charity draw. Registrations will reopen for a short time at 12 noon CET for both individuals and relay teams with part of the entry fee going to charity.
