KnappenMan – the fast triathlon in Lusatia

Due to the constant changes associated with Corona Covid-19, we unfortunately do not have the capacity to maintain the English edition of KappenMan.
We ask for your understanding. Please use this year the German, daily updated edition of the KnappenMan Triathlon.

From a first vague idea, 27 years ago, we build a multiregional event over the time, which is not only a fixed competition in the region, but rather a nationwide event. In 1988 we started the KnappenMan triathlon in Groß Särchen at the Knappensee with no more than 50 participants. Meanwhile the competition processed through many small steps and much partners and supporters to a regional event. Insiders call the KnappenMan the “fast triathlon in the Lausitzer Sealand”, because of the fast and flat course. Concerns, with the relocation from the Knappensee to the Dreiweberner See in Lohsa, a piece of the tradition could be lost, remained unconfirmed. On the contrary, on the Dreiweiberner See the KnappenMan found it´s new home, because of the support from the community Lohsa.
