Paths and profiles


3.8 KM 

Exclusive in France, the AlpsMan Xtrem Triathlon starts with an intense adrenaline rush with a night boat departure. The participants will board the Libellule, a cruise boat, to reach the center of Lake Annecy between the bay of Talloires and the castle of Duingt. After a boat ride in a hushed atmosphere, the boat stops and the participants jump off one by one to reach the starting line. The top start of this day will be given at 5:30 am and the triathletes will dash in a blue and limpid water for 3,8 km of effort. They will leave on the beach of Saint-Jorioz to go to the bike transition zone on the esplanade of Saint-Jorioz.

Dismissal time: 7:30 a.m. - after this time, participants will not be allowed to ride their bikes on the course

An exceptional site

Welcome to an exceptional site

What better playground for an XXL triathlon than Lake Annecy and its environment?

It had been our dream for several years to have an extreme défi here, where courses through breathtaking landscapes, great performances and strong emotions would leave a lasting impression on the participants of the AlpsMan Xtrem Triathlon.

A site known internationally for the beauty of its harmonious landscapes but also for its favorite playgrounds for sportsmen.

Lake Annecy will be the scene of a unique race start on board a boat! Participants will dive into the middle of the lake, classified as the purest in Europe, and then cycle through a real mountain stage, before admiring the panorama of the "blue lagoon" and its grandiose landscapes! Infinder, the marathon will take runners on a course tailor-made for a breathtaking finish at the top of Semnoz for the first and in the village of Saint-Jorioz.

AlpsMan, the one-day trip through the unique landscapes of Haute-Savoie, an unforgettable experience.
