The cooperation between athletes and personal advisor is one of the most important aspects of Austria eXtreme Triathlon. Here a collaboration will take place which is hardly visible in the triathlon industry. Both, the athlete and the personal advisor will be emotionally and physically challenged to a very high level. After two years of planning we decided for a route that is spectacular and challenging but still safety measures are taken for emergencies. We are an independent team of professionals, passionated by a love for the sport and a passion for everything that is movement.
The track of the Austria eXtreme Triathlon is just as breathtakingly beautiful as it is challenging with more than +5.800 meters of altitude. The athletes and their supervisors go on an exciting journey with fantastic landscapes that lead them across the green heart of Austria.
This triathlon is a long-distance competition. The atmosphere of the athletes, supervisors, partners and the crew is familiar and relaxed. The time measurement is second. In the foreground are the personal commitment and the challenging adventure that the athletes share with their supervisors. The winning experience amidst spectacular and breathtaking natural landscapes make the event an unforgettable sporting experience.
