On Sunday, 08 July, one of the region's biggest sporting events will once again take place: <link https: www.frankfurt-tipp.de veranstaltungen s event ironman-european-championship.html _blank>The Ironman European Championship. Several thousand athletes from all over the world will then complete the triathlon, consisting of a 3.8 kilometer swim, 180 kilometer bike ride and 42.2 kilometer marathon run, from the Langener Waldsee. This will of course result in a number of road closures, which is why numerous tram and bus routes will have to be temporarily diverted, interrupted or cancelled. In addition, the S-Bahn tunnel in Frankfurt will be closed.

For an unhindered journey on this day, RMV and traffiQ therefore recommend the subways. For the marathon run, an expansion of the seat capacities is planned for the suburban trains as well as a 15 instead of 30-minute interval in the morning between Frankfurt Südbahnhof and Langen.
The buses of the rail replacement service between Kaiserlei and Konstablerwache are also affected by the sports event. Until 14:30, they will only run between Kaiserlei and Südbahnhof.
