“The Performance Race” is a classic distance triathlon for those with good stamina. The race easily meets the X-Terra standards!

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 3 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. After 14 km and 450 meters altitude you start your second lap. The bike race consists in total of 24 km and 900 meters altitude. The running course is a great combination of single tracks and dirt-roads along the  river with only 140 meters altitude per lap. For this part of the race the 6 km lap will be run twice.

The water temperature in September will be between 20 and 24 degrees. This individual race is open to anyone aged 17 and above. The fastest racers often complete this classic distance in around 2 hours 45 minutes but we allow you 4 hours maximum to complete the course.
