Paths and profiles
08:30 am - Early in the morning, from the beach of Saint-Jorioz, you will dive into the crystal clear waters of Lake Annecy to do two 1 km loops with an Australian style exit. The atmosphere at the lake will carry you and give you the strength to face the rest of this course which will not give you any gifts.
Mass Start: 08:30 am
Time barrier: 09:30 a.m. (Out of the water)
True to the DNA of the AlpsMan, the bike part will not spare you. Once out of the transition zone, you will head for the Col de Leschaux via Entredozon. This climb in two stages will get you in shape for the rest of the course. Once you have passed this first pass, you will ride to Saint-François de Sales, Aillon-le-Jeune then Lescheraines. From this point, you will only have to go down to Saint-Jorioz to reach the transition zone and start the running part.
Time barrier: 1:45 pm at Lescheraines
Time barrier: 03:00 pm at the exit of the bike park
Last part of this Half like AlpsMan: the run is a dry climb of 16 km. From Saint-Jorioz to Monnetier, you will start with three kilometers on the flat, just to stretch your legs a bit. Then the slope will slightly slope over the next six kilometers until La Bauche. A small flat section will allow you to catch your breath before entering the heart of the matter. The last six kilometers will be uphill only until the finish. For some of you it will be a formality, for others, a real way of the cross. From Saint-Jorioz to the top of Semnoz you will accumulate 1300 m of D+ on 16 km, to become a finisher of the AlpsMan Half Triathlon, that is deserved.
Time barrier: 07:00 pm (stopwatch at the finish)
