Also the registered mobile phone must be available for the WINTERMAN crew during the whole day to get in contact with your support crew!
Can I support my athlete from the bike during the race?
During the swim and bike leg NO, you cannot.
But when he/she is on the run course….Yes, you can support him/her from the bike or you can follow your athlete by running beside. If you decide to accompany your athlete by bike during the run be aware that there are several parts with gravel or pure quality road. A mountainbike is therefore more suitable.
What is the real distance of the swim leg? Sometimes you mention 3,8km sometimes 8,9km?
So what is the true?
Winterman swim is the extreme DOWN-STREAM river swim.
The real distance is calulated according to actual water flow and water current speed.
Be ready for icy cold water and total dark swim of almost 9km / which is according to long therm statistics the equivalent of 3,8km swim in the flat water!
