The third edition of Thor Beach Triathlon will be at August 4th 2018. We hope to see a you at the start line.
Below you can read about the ideas and concept behind this unique event.
You against nature
The idea was/is to create a unique race on the "iron distance".
Where the athletes experience the rough and beautiful nature at the West Coast of Jutland.
A race where the athlete compete against herself/himself and the nature, along with other tough athletes.
A race where only the toughest dare to compete.
A race that will be a legendary and prestigious event. And you can brag to have raced.
A race you will remember and will be proud of to have completed.
In our terms many events are artificial backdrop - Thor Beach Triathlon is the real ting. Deal with the terms nature provides on raceday.
Safety comes first. That’s why we only provide 200 start numbers.
It is very important to respect the dangerous elements of the North Sea.
There are currents, and the waves can be overwhelming. Therefore athletes must wear the "SafeSwimmer" in the swim course. At raceday, there will be boats and kayaks in the water for the safety of the athletes.
In case of big waves on raceday, the swim course will instead be settled in the Fjord (Nissum Fjord). It will still be challenging.
Thorsminde, also known as the pearl of the West Coast.
The town of Thorsminde is an old fishing environment. Fishing is still today the main occupation.
The residents are very friendly and open-minded and used to be visited by many tourists.
Thorsminde provides the perfect setting for a unique nature experience race.
Thorsminde is located between the rough North Sea and the beautiful Nissum Fjord.
There will be a social triathlon atmosphere in the town of Thorsminde at race weekend,
with almost as many athletes as permanent residents in Thorsminde.
We hope many athletes will accept the offer to accommodate for free at the school.
This will also create a unique prelude.
