Postponed until 7th of May 2022

Powerman Viborg – World Triathlon Powerman Middle Distance Duathlon World Championships – postponed until 7th of May 2022.

With the current COVID-19 situation in mind, and to maintain the highest level for a World Championship, the organizers, federation, Viborg Municipality, and the partners of the race, have taken the difficult decision to move the event to 7th of May 2022. The original date of the event was 2nd of October 2021.

Even though the restriction now allows events to take place, we don’t believe that foreigners easily can travel to Denmark in fall 2021.
When we placed the bid for the World Championships back in 2019, we did this to build a bucket list race for athletes all over the world. We believe that we have the city, the federation, the partners, and the organization to fulfill this. Anyway, with these COVID-19 restrictions and especially travel restrictions for age group athletes, we see no other solution than to postpone this.

For athletes matters, your registration has been automatically moved to the new event in 2022.
In case you are already registered for the event, and not able to participate in the event in May 2022, send us a mail on – then we will credit the entry fee.

Of course, we regret the inconvenience and extra work caused by the change.
At the same time, we are looking forward to welcoming you to Viborg on 7th of May 2022.
