The City of Evian in the French Alps, and OC Sport - organizers of the La Tour Genève Triathlon and the Mont-Blanc Triathlon - are proud to announce the creation of a brand new event, the Evian Triathlon. The first edition will take place on September 16 and 17, 2023, with 3 race formats available and pre-registration is already open here.
The LÉ-MAN is a full distance format that starts with 3.8km of swimming in the blue waters of Lake Geneva. Next is 180km of cycling with approximately 3,600m of ascent passing through mythical passes such as the Col de la Ramaz, the Gavot plateau as well as the magnificent panorama of Champeillant. The climax will be at the edge of the lake with 42.195km of running. Sprint (750m / 20km / 5km) and Olympic (1500m / 40km / 10km) formats will complete the programme of this festive weekend.
Benjamin Chandelier, General Manager of OC Sport Outdoor, is delighted with this collaboration: “We are happy to announce the creation of the Evian Triathlon in collaboration with a city we know well and with which we share the same values. A triathlon in Evian is an obvious choice because it is a city of water nestled in an incredible setting between the lake and the mountains, and I am convinced that the triathletes will be excited about this new offering.”
Josiane Lei, Mayor of Evian said: "The creation of a triathlon in Evian-les-Bains reflects our ambition for the town to offer different sporting activities in an idyllic setting due to the environment that surrounds us. This dynamic goes hand in hand with our "Terre de Jeux Paris 2024" label obtained thanks to our desire to promote sports and the quality of our facilities. This event is also part of the Agenda 2030 in which the city is involved, with the challenge of promoting health, sport and well-being. We are delighted to welcome all these triathletes who will take up the challenge of the triple effort between the Alps and Lake Geneva."
A press conference detailing the courses will be organised in January 2023.
