This is the perfect event for those who don’t enjoy certain disciplines: here the choice is yours!
Don’t want to get wet? Don’t fancy an uphill struggle or running on sore knees? Never mind…just don’t!
You can follow exactly the same course and distance as the Classic triathlon but in just two disciplines. Remember, you can only race in the duathlon as an individual. There won’t be a podium event for this race but everyone who finishes gets a medal for participating.
None of the routes are near roads and traffic so you can appreciate the beauty of Nature in complete safety.
The swim takes place in a small stretch of open water near Le Chable and consists of 2,33 laps of 500 meters followed by a short beach run over rubber mats. The cycling sends you up to the heights of Bruson and then down through the forest and fields below. The bike race consists in total of 15.5 km and 450 meters altitude this year. The running course is a great combination of single tracks and dirt-roads along the river with only 110 meters altitude per lap. For this part of the race the 6 km lap will be run twice in the swim and run.
The water temperature was measured by the department of health at 19.4 degrees on 03.06.2019. We will update the water temperature on our website on 12.06 and 14.06. Wet-suits are allowed for all athletes if the water temperature is below 24,9°C.
Wet-suits are mandatory at 14°C or lower.
