Questions about Ironman Germany

Post by Barry1 » Wed, 11 Jan 1995 12:23:42


My Girlfriend and I would like to do Iroman Germany this summer.   We live
in Dallas, Texas and have both done Ironman races before. Can somebody
help us with the following questions?

1) How far a drive is Roth from Munich, and how far is it from Frankfort?
We are trying to book our airline tickets now.

2) Any tips on affordable accomodations?

3) Does anyone have a copy of a race application for 1995, or are they
even out yet?  How soon does the race usually fill up?

4) Any information on the race course, water tempeture, air tempeture,
etc. is appreciated.

*Great*  You'll love it. It is the best athletic vacation I've ever had.

Roth is only about 15 miles south of Nuremburg and this is a good city to
use as a base. I had no difficulties with taking my bike on the trains to
and from Roth. Munich is much further away, but it might be cheaper to
fly there from Dallas.

I have a few suggestions. E-mail me and I'll see if I can help.

It will probably fill in the next few months. I would recommend getting
the application in as soon as possible. I have the fax number.

It was about 85 F and sunny last year, but not very humid -- cooler than
Dallas during the summer.
The bike course is superb. The Europeans love cycling and they really
crowd the streets -- all are screaming and  ringing cowbells. There were
120,000 people watching last year. The crowd and the competition are what
make the times so fast. Anyway, e-mail me if you would like more info.

180km in the north of Munich, a little bit more than 200km from
Frankfurt, look for Nurnberg at the map.

I can tell you about the 1994 race. Warm water (maybe 23Celsius) and
warm air. 1993 it was raining and it was cold... Incredible croud of
spectators, more than 100000.
