Information about OM & OM113
Before the starting signal goes off at 06:45 a.m. for the OsstseeMan and at 09:30 a.m. for the OM113, all athletes gather at Glücksburg’s beach promenade. The mass start (beach start) takes place in front of the promenade in Glücksburg. The swim is clockwise on a 1.9 kilometer long rectangular course. While participants of the half distance competition leave the water after one round, participants of the long distance competition have to face the waves of the sea on a second lap. All athletes must swim to the left of the marker buoys.
The start is not just a special moment for triathletes. The specators will also be spellbound by the unique atmosphere on the Baltic Sea beach. Water, wind and waves give everyone goose bumps and make the athletes`adrenaline palpable. The fastest swim times for the long distance are usually under 50 minutes, and under 30 minutes for the half distance.
Out of the sea and into your cycling shoes: Across the beach, past the grandstands, it goes along Kirstenstrasse to the transition area. Leaving the transistion area on the left side, it goes onto the bike course, which is peppered with small climbs and descents. All participants can rely on support during the entire competition, as there will be many enthusiastic spectators along the course, providing an additional boost in motivation while cheering for the athletes loudly.
The bike kilometers have been completed. In the transition area the athletes slip from their cycling shoes into their running shoes. On the running course, the enthusiasm of the spectators becomes even more noticeable, as they celebrate and encourage their sporty heroes with lots of applause. The chosen running course in and around Glücksburg are one of the most beautiful routes in Germany. While the OM113 distance comprises three laps, while six laps must be completed for the OM. The middle distance-Zippels-running-course initially leads together with the long distance course for about two kilometers across the promenade along the water towards the city center.
The course splits at kilometer 4.2. The long distance participants run straight ahead towards Petersenallee, through the castle garden towards Prinz-Fr.-Ferd.-Damm. The middle distance participants turn right onto Collenburgstraße, then right again onto Jungfernstieg/Forstweg towards castle lake.
