Sports at Memmert

Tennis players have their Wimbledon, triathletes Roth. For 15 years now, the world's largest and most popular race with athletes and fans alike, is the Challenge Roth. For Memmertian sport and triathlon fans it is a red-letter day, as important as family birthdays and Christmas.

The city of San Francisco isn’t called “City of Champions” for nothing. The US West Coast metropolis with 800,000 citizens that is the home to the Baseball Giants and the American Football 49ers currently holds the two most meaningful championship titles in US sports. The world champions of the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge Series, with races held in 13 countries,...

The longest day of the year ─ at least from the triathletes point of view ─ is the day of the Roth Challenge each year. When you look at the tough numbers you know why that is: 3.8 km swimming, 180 km cycling and 42.195 km running. That is not the only reason why more than 5000 participants from 70 different nations make the placid, small town of Roth their triathlon Mecca...

The third Memmert Rothsee Triathlon festival has made history yet again and, in our opinion, was a remarkable event - just like in past years.

At the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge in Frankfurt, the largest company run in the world with more than 70,000 participants, the team of Memmert GmbH + Co.

An exciting and successful season is coming to an end for our Team Memmert athletes. Hard training, glorious victories, numerous podium finishes and the joy of sports were the order of the day.

 

That was 2014:

Local Team Memmert joins 4500 other athletes to celebrate the 30th birthday of the worldfamous Challenge Roth. This year, six single starters and six relay teams from Memmert were back to take the long-distance "challenge" triathlon again. The challenge included a 3.8 km swim, a 180 km cycle followed by a 42 km marathon. As if that weren't enough, the athletes, who are usually...

Despite the rain, the 26th edition of the Memmert-Rothsee Triathlon event was everything but a damp squib. About 1200 athletes braved the weather and made "the Rothsee" to that what it is known for: a unique family-friendly triathlon festival known beyond the region.

At least since the 11th of July, the comparatively small "Memmert" company sports team has gained nationwide, if not worldwide, prominence. After our athletes surprisingly became the German champions at the company run last year, Sebastian Reinwand, Joseph Katib, Michael Batz and Matthias Grosser could also hold their ground at the J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge Run, the...
