Welcome to the sixth edition of the competition inspired by the Pentathlon in ancient Greece. SETI.Germany warmly invites all BOINC teams to participate. The most important facts: 5 disciplines, 1 winner.

Two days later the City Run starts: malariacontrol.net
from 05/07/2015, 0:00 UTC to 05/12/2015, 0:00 UTC.
Another two days later there's the Cross Country, the GPU project: Einstein@Home
from 05/09/2015, 0:00 UTC to 05/14/2015, 0:00 UTC.
The surprise turns out to be the swimming event: Yoyo@Home
from 05/10/2015, 0:00 UTC to 05/17/2015, 0:00 UTC.
This leaves the sprint to be the last event, LHC@Home

May 08 to May 12 - CRUNCHATHLON WCG [MONTHLY RUN - RACE VI]
This challenge, issued by the french team CRUNCHERS SANS FRONTIERES, will take place every month at varying dates for four days. All teams are welcome
Let us take forward the World Community Grid project! This challenge neatly falls within the time frame of the Boinc Pentathlon Marathon, so you can crunch two things at the same time...

May 10 to May 17 - B@P POTM - POEM@HOME
BOINC@Poland has planned less cleverly: a Poem@Home challenge in the middle of the Pentathlon. As Poem has a GPU application, it will not be one of the two last events of that Pentathlon, and you'll need your GPUs from the 9th till the 14th at Einstein. Still, for those of us that do not want to engage in the Seti.Germany event...Besides, we're being chased by no less than Seti.Germany themselves...

May 18 to May 25 - Enigma@Home challenge
An Enigma@Home challenge from our Ukrainian friends form Colombia. Or was it the other way around? This project already runs good on a Raspberry Pi! Alan Turing
must be getting stark raving mad in hardware heaven, seeing how little hardware is needed nowadays compared to what he achieved building from scratch -literally. Go and see the movie 'The Imitation Game
' to see what I mean.

Another late entry, but this time I saw it coming before it started. ngb:setiteam has a three-day Seti@Home challenge for us.
