Overview

The oldest triathlon of Europe Almere is a renowned name in triathlon history. After Hawaï, the Holland Triathlon is the oldest triathlon of the world. Almere is the home of the Dutch triathlon sport, with two training clubs and a regional Topsport Centre, and many individual athletes. The Almere course is located 4.5 meters below sea level: at the bottom of what was once the Zuiderzee (South Sea), only 25 kilometers from capital Amsterdam. Still surrounded by water, Flevoland is characterized by dikes, windmills, and endless straight polder roads where you can’t hide from the winds! The battle with the elements is a battle with yourself. In 2012, the 30th anniversary of the race led to a facelift. The location of the start and finish were moved to the city center. The swim, bike, and run course all start and finish on the Esplanade – the square alongside the central lake, on the edge of the curved surface of the futuristic shopping center. Another reason why you should experience the atmosphere of Almere. So, Challenge Almere, Challenge yourself!

Excellent race, very easy to get to from the UK, we went on the overnight ferry and race HQ was only 130km drive, very relaxed way of getting to the race. After doing this race in 2017 and staying slightly out of town we decided to stay in the main race hotel 100m's from the fin...Read full review

The race location is virtually made for triathlon, using the theater ( Schouwburg ) provides the perfect venue for everything inclusive of showers, changing rooms etc. It is evident from the organisation that the race has been going since 1983 as everything is catered for. The r...Read full review
