Take part in the unique Triathlon de la Madeleine, new version XL!
This event is organized on and around Saint Francois de Longchamp. The event has been around since 2015 and will have its 8th edition on Saturday, August 20, 2022.
This triathlon is not just any old one....it is known for its heaviness; in fact, this triathlon has the most altitude meters in all of France and will come with the heavy XL edition in 2022!
After swimming in the water in the lake of Saint-Rémy-de-Maurienne, the routes of cycling with huge differences in altitude go in the following distances
- 1600m swim in the lake of Saint-Rémy-de-Maurienne
- 111km cycling (3800hm) from Saint-Rémy-de-Maurienne et Saint François Longchamp, to the Lacets de Montvernier, le Col du Mollard, le Col de la Croix de Fer, le Col du Glandon and the final climb via Montgellafrey!
- 13km run (450m) 3 laps
The running part takes place in the middle of the village of Saint-Francois-de-Longchamp. Here, family, friends and supporters can cheer on the favorites.
On a half board basis during stay and adapted food for the competition.
Stay in luxury apartment or chalet at Parc Madeleine in Saint Francois de Longchamps.
Optional daily bike wash or sports massage
Private parking in parking garage
Climb all the possibilities of the Col de Madeleine, discover the gems in the area such as several balcony climbs and enter the world's largest cycling area in the French Alps in the run-up to this event.
Because this event is also run at altitude, the stay in Parc Madeleine is an absolute must. Make sure you start the event well rested and make good use of the sleep at altitude so you will get used to the event as soon as possible (usually after 4 days), just in time for a great performance in this unique triathlon!
