The Pho3nix Foundation today announces the availability of limited free tickets to watch the Pho3nix Sub7 and Sub8 Project, Powered by Zwift happening on the 5th or 6th of June 2022 at the Dekra Lausitzring in Germany.
Don’t miss your front row seat to witness triathlon history as champions Alistair Brownlee, Kristian Blummenfelt, Nicola Spirig and Kat Matthews attempt to Defy The Impossible and do what has never been done before: complete a gruelling full-distance triathlon in under seven hours for the men and eight hours for the women.
While admission is free, entry is exclusive to ticket holders only. Spectators may register individually at sub7sub8.com/tickets. Simply input name, country, contact details, and athlete you are supporting to receive your complimentary pass to the Dekra Lausitzring Test Oval and watch the Sub7 and Sub8 races unfold. You must enter by Friday 13 May 2022.
The ground-breaking attempt will begin with the 3.8-kilometre swim in nearby Lake Senftenberg. Athletes will then ride the fast open German roads before entering Lausitzring’s 5.85km Test Oval, the main course for the 180-kilometre bike and 42-kilometre run legs.
The Dekra Lausitzring will open from 7:30 a.m. on Sunday June 5, with the athletes expected to arrive at 8:00 a.m. for the bike and run legs. Spectators will have multiple vantage points to see the action up close until the event concludes at the eight-hour mark at 3:00 p.m.
Spectators have the choice of rooting for the dual Olympic gold medalist Brownlee, or the reigning Olympic champion Blummenfelt? Are you cheering for the great Spirig with a long and stellar career behind her, or the up-and-coming Matthews with a promising career ahead of her?
A feat that is as aspirational as it is mythical, the Sub7 and Sub8 attempts aim to create a new world standard of human performance. To break the 7-hour and 8-hour mark, our competitors need to be at their peak physical and mental condition. Because every second counts, they will also take advantage of top-of-the-line and even experimental apparel and equipment technology to shave time from the swim, bike, and run. Lastly, some of the best single-discipline athletes in the world will keep the speed high as pacemaker teams to allow the competitors to measure their effort, conserve energy and control their pace in order to achieve the fastest possible time.
The Sub7 and Sub8 Project will also be broadcast live globally for free via streaming on sub7sub8.com, as well the Pho3nix Foundation YouTube and Facebook platforms. A one-hour highlights package covering the full lead-up and race week is also set for wide distribution.
