ROTH (distrito) Origem: Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre: Roth é um distrito da Alemanha, na região administrativa de Mittelfranken, estado da Baviera, com uma área de 895,18 km² e com uma população de 125.823 habitantes (2004). A vila de Roth fica situada 25 kms a sul de Nuremberga. Challenge Roth From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Challenge Roth, is a triathlon race in and around Roth, Germany. It is held annually in July. Course: The distance is the Ironman distance, even though the race is not part of the official Ironman series. The first part of the race, the 3.8 km swim event, takes place in the Rhine–Main–Danube Canal around 10 km outside Roth. The subsequent 180 km bike course uses a two-lap course on the countryside, mostly south of Roth. The souternmost point is Greding. The course is mostly relatively flat with a tougher hill once per lap. The final marathon running goes once around a course with several turning points. Mostly the course goes on the same road after each turning points, so competitors meet each other. A major part of the course is along the Rhine–Main–Danube Canal. The finish is in central Roth. History: The race has been held since 1990 on the Ironman distance, and since 1984 on short distance. It was formerly part of the Ironman series, until 2001. It has been held independently fron WTC since 2002. The number of participants has been high and is around 2500, limited by crowding.
