Ultratriathlon Statistik


The following statistics were created on basis of all ultratriathlon results from the first "Double" 1985 in Huntsville, Alabama, USA til today. Stand of 31.12.2017. The statistics will be updated once a year at the end of saison. You've found a mistake, miss a statistic or have a question? Don't hesitate to write me at Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein!! Many thanks for Your help.

The "Ultratriathlon Yearbook 2010" from the German Ultratriathlete Hans-Joachim Dilg served as basis for my statistics. We are especially grateful to him and his valuable work. Big thanks to Beat Knechtle, Roberto Lendaro, Nick Mallett and Yves Beauchamp for a few additions and corrections.

Three events are not part of the statistics because of the following reasons.

  • 2010 - Double Ultratriathlon in Neulengbach (AUT): It was held as a duathlon because of too cold water in the pool.
  • 2012 - Double Ultratriathlon in Playa Planca, Lanzarote (ESP): It was held as a duathlon because the swim part was cancelled caused by strong undertow in the sea.
  • 2013 - Double Ultratriathlon in Emsdetten (GER): Because of a time system failure there are no official results.
