Last weekend Lars was spectating at the IRONMAN 70.3 European Championship in Helsingør. He was very inspired by the many cool SAYSKY stars and the fantastic comradery that he witnessed. You can check out the pictures and read about the experience here.
This also made him realize that he missed the thrill of racing. His last triathlon performance was at the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii in 2015. Therefore, he decided that it was time to get back in the water and up on the bike again. So with no training other than the occasional marathons and weekly running sessions, he signed up for Øresund Triathlon on Sunday.
Øresund Triathlon is a local triathlon race, located just north of Copenhagen. The start is at 7.00AM (CET) and you can keep track of Lars as he takes on the half ironman distance. He'll race with bib no. 67 and there'll be live tracking here.
As already mentioned, it has been quite some time ago since Lars has been swimming or cycling, so it'll be very interesting to see what the result will be on Sunday. He has raced the Øresund Triathlon on several occasions, always finishing Top 10. This is also where he had his triathlon debut in 2011, with a finish time of 4h22m. In 2014 he put down a PR here as well, crossing the finish line in 4h16m.

So what will his time be on Sunday? You have the stats above, although it's been a while, so they might not mean much. On a side note we can tell that his IRONMAN PR is 9h11m. He'll race in the new Splinter Aero Suit 2.0 and one thing is for sure: it's not made for walking!
Go to our Facebook or Instagram pages and place your bid in the comment field. The winner will be awarded with the brand new SAYSKY Aero Suit 2.0 - Splinter or Sky Captain - the choice is yours. Needless to say, but the bid must be placed before Sunday, 7.00AM (CET).
Simon is the current Danish national marathon champion and very soon he’ll be off to the World Athletics Half Marathon in Gdynia, Poland on October 17 – representing the national team for the first time. We had a talk with Simon about his training ambitions and what it means to have a family, full-time job and run at an elite level at the same time.
Many events have been cancelled this year, but that doesn’t stop us from running - it’s time for another #sayskyracing challenge! So let’s unite the SAYSKY worldwide running tribe and hit the roads from across the world! Starting October 15 at 10.00am CEST, we’ll give you 24h to rack up as much mileage as possible together.
Everything Earned is a motivational statement and testament that in running, nothing happens by luck nor by miracles. It takes dedication and hard work. And no one can take this away from you or say otherwise if they look into your training-log. It was you who ran the miles and it was you who put in all the effort.
