The Long Distance Triathlon has a specially designed course, making it the first ever "made for gravel bike" triathlon in Czech Republic, and also to be faster on the gravel than on classic mountain bike. The remote transition area on the opposite shore of the Lipno lake make this race unique. Horni Plana (start) and Blizsi Lhota (transition area, finish) are connected by the ferry boat, with free ticket for all competitors and supporters! Enjoy this pure and long distance experience in the wonderful nature of the Sumava mountains!
