Course changes and expanded event roster at Enea IRONMAN 5150 Warsaw 2019

The organisers of Enea IRONMAN 5150 Warsaw triathlon in Poland have confirmed that the fourth edition of the race will take place on June 16, 2019. Registration opened on November 5, 2018.

In addition to the main Olympic distance event (1.5km swim, 40km bike, 10km run), there will be three relay races. Short run events are also planned for younger sports enthusiasts.

“We know from research that almost half of our participants are debutants at the Olympic distance,” said Piotr Jakóbik from Sport Evolution, the agency that organizes the competition. “We set ourselves the goal that the Enea IRONMAN 5150 Warsaw competition should be a magnet that attracts new people to this beautiful sport. Therefore, triathlon relays have been added to the program of the competition. This is an excellent opportunity to feel the emotions accompanying the start in triathlon competitions.

Next year’s event will also see an amendment to the course on which the triathletes will compete.

“This year we have moved the town of events to the Vistula Boulevards and we will stay on them, but both the cross-country trail, as well as the location of the change zone and the finish line will change,” said Michał Drelich, Event Director.

“We cannot give you all the details yet, but I am convinced that the players will accept these changes positively.”

The number of participants is limited to 1500 people. Before starting the registration phase, the organizers also offered up pre-sale packages for this year’s participants of Enea IRONMAN 5150 Warsaw and Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia.

Registration opened on November 5 at 14:00 CET on the portal SlotMarket.pl. The pricing of event packages remains unchanged from this year’s edition:

First 500 starter packs – €80
Second phase of 500 starter packs – €100
Final 500 starter packages – €120

For 2019, the organizers are also offering athletes finisher photos, diet plans as well as race cancellation insurance. A training camp in Fuerteventura is planned for February to March, where athletes will be able to fine-tune their preparations under the supervision of experienced coaches.

Race Director Michał Drelich, added, “We hope that this is just the beginning of attractions and surprises. There is still a lot of time until June, but I can say that we are working hard to attract world class athletes to Enea IRONMAN 5150 Warsaw. I do not promise anything, but if at this year’s Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia we could attract multiple world champions: Daniela Ryf and Mirinda Carfrae, and also Tim O’Donnell, who at the IRONMAN World Championship was 4th, the sky is the limit for next year.”
