THE EVIAN TRIATHLON OPENS THE DOORS OF ITS FIRST EDITION




The City of Evian and the company OC Sport (already organizer of the Tour Genève Triathlon and the Triathlon du Mont-Blanc) are proud to announce the creation of the Evian Triathlon, whose 1st edition will be held on September 16 and 17, 2023. 3 race formats will be offered, including 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 about 3,600 m of elevation gain (passing by mythical 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 in apotheosis at the edge of the Lake for 42,195km of happiness on foot. Sprint (750m/ 20km/ 5km) and Olympic (1500m/ 40 km/ 10 km) will complete the program of this festive weekend.


Benjamin Chandelier, Managing Director of OC Sport Outdoor, is delighted with this collaboration: “We are pleased 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 obvious because it is a water city nestled in an incredible setting between Lake and Mountain and I am convinced that the triathletes will be present.”


For Josiane Lei, Mayor of Evian: “The creation of a triathlon in Evian-les-Bains reflects our ambition for the city to offer different sports 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, which was obtained thanks to our desire to promote sports and the quality of our reception facilities. This event is also part of the 2030 Agenda 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.”
