Käringsund Triathlon has been arranged since 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 where Friday traditionally is devoted to relay and Saturday to individual starts!
The Käringsund relay on Friday will this year be an easier supersprint (400m- 10km- 2,5km) One team consists of three participants, each team member completes one part of the triathlon. The four different classes are 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 by cheering on them. What about a dinner together afterwards?! Various sports teams can playfully vary their training by participating in the triathlon relay. The relay can also be a nice getaway with friends – combine the race with a relaxing weekend at Åland! There are many possibilities!

Saturday is a real family day and offers a combination of playful and almost rule-free competition (fitness categories at all distances) and serious race in olympic- and halfdistance triathlon and the youngsters supersprint and sprint with international rules. Thereto there are both kids- and toddlers races and Käringsund Aquathlon Special which is meant for children and adults who have some form of mental retardation or special needs. In Aquathlon participants swim and run, no biking. In Aquathlon you first swim with the equipment you need and then you run (or go by bike, wheelchair) … the possibilities are many!
After a few years break, sprint distance will be with us again in Käringsund and thereto there is also the opportunity to completely skip cycling and running if you sign for the new open water – distance.
There are individual starts from the youngest to the very “adult” ones in both race and fitness categories.
Käringsund Triathlon is a spectator-friendly event with a unique opportunity to follow the start, finish and transitions comfortably from the terrace. In addition to the competitions there is entertainment during the day, and on Friday evening there is a pasta party and on Saturday evening it’s time to enjoy the season’s final dinner!
