The Dutch Championship Cross Triathlon promises to be a spectacular race on a specially designed course. In addition to this National Championships there will be also an Open Series Cross Triathlon, which will be spectacular as well!

After the fast swim, you will hit your mountainbike to enjoy the heavy, but also technical course around Braambergen and De Kemphaan. Each round – 13 kilometres long – you reach over 200 altitude metres and you’ll race over the most amazing single tracks. This course was built last winter by dozens of enthusiastic volunteers and promises more than just spectacle. After the bike ride, of course, there will follow a nice run towards the finish line.

September 8th 2019 it’s on!

Youth NC: 375 meter

Sprint (NC Juniors + Open): 500 meter

Standard (Elite NC + NC Agegroup + Open): 1K

The swim course takes place in the water around the beautiful nature of Almere. During the swim you will pass the more than familiar local houseboats on one side, while the Kemphaan is on your other side. This is the place where a part of the bike course will take place. The swim course forms a clear ‘back and forth loop’ and promises fast times.


Youth: 9.5K

Sprint (NC Juniors + Open): 9.5K

Standard (Elite NC + NC Agegroups + Open): 29.5K

The bike course consists of several sections, which together form a 13 kilometres loop. You will start with 2 kilometres in the direction of Braambergen, followed by a hilly round (including 200 altitude metres) of 6 kilometres. Via Braambergen you will drive 1.5km back to the transition zone. This is the place where a flat, but technical section of 3.5 km around the Kemphaan will follow. During the race you will cross these sections several times.


Youth NC: 2.5K

Sprint (NC Juniors + Open): 5K

Standard (Elite NC+ NC Agegroups + Open): 7.5K

The run course also takes you through the beautiful nature around the Kemphaan. The lap of just over two kilometres mainly leads over forest paths and needs to be completed several times, depending on the discipline.
