Swimming, running and cycling: BFFT masters the Triathlon Ingolstadt 2017 at high summer temperatures
On 28 May 2017, around 2,300 athletes participated in the eighth edition of the sports event in Ingolstadt. The Triathlon is one of the biggest events in the region and offered something for every athlete. At high summer temperatures, participants could select from three distances: Sprint (0.75 km swimming – 20 km cycling – 5 km running); Olympic (1.5 km swimming – 40 km cycling – 10 km running); or Middle (2 km swimming – 77 km cycling – 20.2 km running).
BFFT has been an integral part of the Triathlon Ingolstadt since 2012, and this year was naturally no exception. The sporting event provides ideal conditions for networking among colleagues and promoting team spirit. Three highly motivated
BFFT squads took part in the triathlon, embodying the motto “Work hard, play hard”. Top performances were achieved once again this year, despite the tropical temperatures. Some of the BFFT team members immersed themselves in the waters of the Baggersee lake, while others span pedals as fast as they could, or circumnavigated the Baggersee on foot. The team members had spent several weeks training, so they were perfectly prepared for the competition. An attractive and highly successful warm-up programme was offered at the in-house Business Sport Club with personal trainer Lisa la Garde.
As a special treat, all BFFT athletes were equipped with suitable clothing for their disciplines, and to further reinforce the “we” feeling on the day of the event, everyone was given a BFFT sports outfit, consisting of short sports pants and a sports shirt.
BFFT congratulates its participants on their performance and is already looking forward to the ninth triathlon next year!
