November 11, 2020 0 By JohnValbyNation

After his triumphant third victory at Ironman Hawaii in October, triathlon legend Jan Frodeno has announced he will return to Challenge Roth on 5 July 2020.


Jan Frodeno last raced Roth in 2016, when he not only convincingly won the race, but also set a new Iron-distance world record time of 7:35:39 which remains unbeaten. 

“There’s no race like Roth anywhere else in the world, Frodeno says. “The great backdrop with hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic fans, the over 35-year history of this legendary race, all of this completely thrills me. But above all, I assume that there will once again be a very strong field at DATEV Challenge Roth. I just find it exciting to measure myself against the best in the world.  I need the challenge.”

Organiser Felix Walchshöfer said: “We have worked a lot with Jan Frodeno since 2016, and I am proud and delighted that he decided to race again at DATEV Challenge Roth. I know his need to duel with the world’s best triathletes and I am sure we can offer him this world-class field in 2020.
