A CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR ALL TRIATHLETES



The City of Evian and the company OC Sport (already organizer of the La Tour Genève Triathlon and the Mont-Blanc Triathlon) are proud to announce the creation of the Evian Triathlon, the 1st edition of which will be held on September 16 and 17 2023. 3 race formats will be offered and in particular the LÉ-MAN, a full distance format of 3.8 km of swimming in the blue waters of Lake Geneva, 180 km of cycling with approximately 3,600 m of altitude difference (via legendary passes such as the Col de la Ramaz, but also by the Gavot plateau as well as by the magnificent panorama of Champeillant), and the final apotheosis at the edge of the Lake for 42,195km of happiness on foot. Sprint (750m/20km/5km) and Olympic (1500m/40km/10km) formats will complete the program for this festive weekend.


Benjamin Chandelier, Managing Director 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 that we know well and with which we share the same values. A triathlon in Evian is obvious because it is a water town nestled in an incredible setting between lake and mountain and I am convinced that the triathletes will respond.”


For Josiane Lei, Mayor of Évian: “ The creation of a triathlon in Évian-les-Bains is a reflection of our ambition for the city 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 the practice of sport and the quality of our reception structures. This event is also part of the 2030 Agenda in which the City is involved, with the particular challenge of promoting health, sport and well-being. We are delighted to welcome all these triathletes who will take on the challenge of the triple effort between the Alps and Lake Geneva.”


A press conference detailing the courses will be organized in January 2023. Find the Evian Triathlon on September 16 and 17, 2023: www.triathlonevian.com
