Hello,

I am searching the biggest triathlon event over the short distance (1,5 km
- 40 km - 10 km). At the moment Roth Rothsee-Triathlon with about 1000
competitors is leading. Whom of you knows a bigger one? Send me an email
please.

Not even close.  Try Mrs. T's Chicago Triathlon.  The numbers I've heard
for that one are between 3,000 and 5,000 participants.

I can't give you the exact competitor count these days, but Chicago
(Illinois, USA) hosts Mrs. T's Chicago Triathlon, an event that has been
billed for a long time as "The World's Largest" triathlon.  This 1.5K
swim/40K bike/10K run event has been scoring in the 3,000-4,000 competitor
range in recent years, I believe.

Mrs. T's in Chicago in 1995 had almost 5,000 total entries.

entrants. the biggest, though, is Chicago with
about 5000.

The Danskin Womens Triathlon, a sprint race, had 1,557 entrants in 1996.  Each
race of the series averages about 1000 racers.

It was huge in Seattle.  I got to work the swim start, as each of the racers
swam by.

The Mrs. T's is the world's largest with almost 4,000 athletes annually
for each of the last 8 years (the event celebrates its 15 anniversary this
year). This year's date is Sunday, August 3rd in downtwon Chicago.
