Finishing is a major feat by itself. Winning takes world class athleticism, endurance and fastness. The name "Challenge Roth" was first used in 2002 but the event goes back to 1984 and has been held under various names due to sponsorship reasons and conflicts between the local event and the "Ironman" brand under which the triathlon used to be run.
