Käringsund Triathlon was held for the first time in 2009. From the beginning, the core idea of the triathlon race was to create an event to suit everyone and in which the range of distances would invite everyone to participate. Young and old alike and more and less trained can participate and experience the fantastic sportsmanship the triathlon can offer.
The main organizer of the event is Åland Event, in close cooperation with Åland Triathlon Club and Käringsund Resort & Conference.
The Käringsund Triathlon is a fun two-day event. Friday is devoted to sprint relay, with a total of four different classes – men´s/ mix, women, company and familyclass.
The relay race is an excellent opportunity for companies to bring their staff to scenic Käringsund for the competition. Those who don’t participate in the race can support their workmates with cheerleading. What about a dinner together afterwards?! Various sports teams can playfully vary their training and try new sports with the triathlon relay. The team competition is also a nice get-together and a way to visit Åland and to combine the race with a relaxing weekend in Eckerö. The combinations of team compositions and possibilities are many!
