Swiss role: Zofingen to host Long Distance Duathlon Worlds again

Long distance run-bike-run pinnacle back in Switzerland for 2022

Last updated -

The 2022 World Triathlon Powerman Long Distance Duathlon Championships will take place in Zofingen, Switzerland, on September 3-4, World Triathlon have confirmed.

The classic event on the calendar will once again be disputed over a 10km run, 150km bike and 30km run format. 

However, the 2022 season will be without the World Triathlon Cup Miyazaki after World Triathlon’s executive board approved Triathlon Japan’s decision to cancel the event due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent travel restrictions.  

The executive board also used its meeting to add new members to the Sustainability Commission, including Wales’ former ITU World Champion triathlete Non Stanford.  


Odeyn and Brunnée current champs

At last year’s World Triathlon Long Distance Duathlon Championships in Zofingen, Belgian Seppe Odeyn coasted to victory with a time of 6:06:41, with second-placed Jens-Michael Gossauer finishing over 12 minutes later (6:19:15).

In the elite women’s race, Merle Brunnée (7:07:27) crossed the finishing line first in Switzerland, with Nikola Corbova coming second and Sarah Noemi taking third.  

The first Long Distance Duathlon World Championships were held in 1997, with Natascha Badmann winning the elite women’s race and Urs Dellsperger winning the elite men’s race for a Swiss double.
