International Triathlon Holten 2012
Holten and the triathlon sport are inextricably connected to each other. Already the 28th edition of the Triathlon Holen will take place in the summer of 2012.
In 2009 the Holten Triathlon organization hosted the European Championships and in 2010 the first World Cup on Dutch ground took place in Holten.
A combination of fanatical and enthusiastic top athletes, recreational athletes and numerous spectators will provide a unique atmosphere: this makes this event so special. The preparations for 2011 are already in full swing. It promises to be a grandiose sports festival with international participants and hundreds of recreational athletes.
