Valtteri Bottas Duathlon and Lehtimäki Group

Valtteri Bottas Duathlon powered by Tunturi will be held for the third time on Sunday, August 18, 2019 in Valtteri’s home district, Nastola. Lehtimäki Group is the official partner of the event.

Co-operation on public transportation continues, as Lehtimäki brings people from the Lahti market square to Pajulahti.

Lehtimäki free transportation on Sunday, August 18, 2019:

  • DEPARTURE from Lahti at 10 am, 11 am and at noon, from Marolankatu tourist stop, on the edge of the market square.
  • RETURN from Pajulahti at 3 pm, 4 pm and 5 pm in front of Pajulahti Hall.

This year’s novelties

Team Duathlon is the much-desired novelty this year. Mika Häkkinen and his team tested the tracks last year. The Mini-VBD for children under the age of 7 is also a welcome addition. Each participating child will receive a medal. Valtteri Bottas enters the starting line at 2 pm.

Things to do for the whole family

The event area has free entrance and has a wide range of activities for the whole family. At the Partner Area, the event partners will make sure that everyone has enough to do.
