We are happy that the 32. International Uster Triathlon can take place on July, 17/18 2021. As the event will be one of the first big sport events taking place again, there will still be a few COVID-19 rules & regulations in place. 


With your participation we trust that you will respect and adhere to the measures in place and support us in organizing an event which save for the athletes, volunteers and the community. We cannot wait to see you racing again and are looking forward to seeing you at the start line.
