WHAT IS LEGENDMAN XTREME TRIATHLON?

The Legendman is a triathlon extreme race for the athletes and their supporters from the Silesia region part of Poland. The spectacular course, the unique scenery and the familiar atmosphere make the Legendman an unforgettable adventure for everyone involved. The course of the LegendMan with more than 5000 altimeters is as breathtakingly beautiful as it is demanding. They will be the hardest and most memorable experiences of your life. 

All athletes and supporters need to register on www.legendman.pl. At the Legendman Xtreme Triathlon we will distribute only 100 slots. The entry fee is 800 Polish Zloty. Each athlete needs his personal, registered supporter, who can communicate with the Legendman Crew in English. Participation is prohibited without a registered supporter. The supporter is personally responsible for his athlete during the entire day. There will be only one official and registered supporter. Only one supporter vehicle, which will be marked accordingly, is allowed per athlete. Both athletes and supporters must follow traffic rules with no exception! 

For security reasons, the athlete must carry a mobile phone during the bike and running part so he is accessible to his supporters. Headsets are not allowed on the bike; the athlete must stop and dismount to take or make a phone call. It is the responsibility of the supporter to feed his athlete for the entire duration of the bike and running parts.

Supporters should not drive directly in front of, next to or behind the athlete, and the athlete may not accept anything from the moving car. At no time may he sit in the car. Remember true Legendman finishers do not draft! You will find no referee on the course. We assume a fair sportsman respects nature, other Legendman participants and themselves, acting in accordance with their conscience. Thus, setting the highest standards of sportsmanship ethics.

 The running path is allowed to accompany the athlete by foot or bike (bike only where it will be possible). Hiking sticks are not allowed during any part of the running part. The supporter must have a functioning phone with the registered supporter number on him. Supporters and athletes can only pass the checkpoint equipped with a backpack with food, warm clothing, and a flash- or headlight. 

On Sunday morning, the awards ceremony will be held at the Park Zdrojowy, street Warszawska 2,  Jedlina Zdrój. Each athlete and supporter who crossed the finish line or not will officially become a Legendman and receive a T-shirt. Finishers T-shirts will be different from those of athletes who did not cross the finish line. Athlets who crosses the finish line will receive unique finisher medals. Finally, we will take a group photo of all Legendman Xtreme Triathlon 2024 participants.

MANDATORY SUPPORTER

  1. Responsibility of the supporter.

The organizer doesn’t provide nutrition and hydration points along the competition route. That’s why every athlete needs their own support. The support is with the athlete throughout the race, ensuring hydration and nutrition. Without registered support, athletes will not be able to start in the race. The registered supporter will take on every responsibility for the supervision of the athlete during the Legendman. He must be able to communicate with the Legendman Crew in English. When athletes register, they also must provide information about their supporters. The supporter can be exchanged any time until the Legendman. 

  1. Only one supporter vehicle allowed.

Per athlete only one supporter vehicle is allowed. The car must be marked by the Legendman organization. Reason for the strict limitation to one car is that we wish to not strain the environment more than necessary. Furthermore, the parking spaces as well as room on the roads are very limited. In this car, several people can help and support the athlete, but only one person needs to be registered as official support.

  1. Supporter Shirt.

One supporter shirt will be issued per athlete. The desired sizes of the supporter-shirts will already be ordered at registration. As we have to order the specially made shirts very early, the size cannot be changed with an eventual change of supporter at a later time. Additional Legendman-shirts can be bought during the Legendman. Each athlete and supporter who crossed the finish line or not crossed will officially become a Legendman and receive a T-shirt. Finishers T-shirts will be different from those of athletes who did not cross the finish line. Athlets who crosses the finish line will receive unique finisher medals. As the supporters are an essential part of the Legendman, they receive an official supporter Legendman-shirt on Sunday

  1. Medical Crew.

The medical crew may at any time remove an athlete from continuation, in case of medical or health issues. Continuation of the Legendman on personal responsibility is not possible.
