The courses may be changed by the organisation the day of the race for security reasons.
The swim course looks to be impressive. Located in the unique setting of Lake Annecy, this first challenge features an unusual start. Indeed, the participants will board a boat at 4.45AM in order to head to the center of the lake, between the Bay of Talloires and the Château de Duingt, the starting point of the race. 3.8k later, swimmers will exit the water and the transition to the bikes will be on the Place St Jorioz.
For a beautiful finish, the marathon route starts with a common loop until the point “The Turn Point” Km 24,6. At this precise point, only the runners arriving before 5:30PM will climb up to the top of Semnoz (Total elevation on the run leg is around 1300 meters). The other competitors will finish the marathon on the other loop passing along the lake and the bicycle path for an arrival in the village of Saint Jorioz.
