Features of the event

Your adventure begins with a Swim Course of 2 loops (1,900 m each) in the Water Body of the Cher banks.

The comfortable transition area will be set indoors in Hall B at the Exhibition Center of Tours. Its ideal location in the city makes it a most convenient venue for such an event.

The 90 km Bike course with no particular difficulty will take you along the banks of both the Loire and the Cher rivers, where you can admire several of the architectural jewels of the city. The course leads you back to the site and to the Nascar Speed ring before you can take the second lap and fully enjoy the landscape.

Each lap of the shaded Marathon course will take you on the Isle Honoré de Balzac and back to the site where a large crowd of spectators will cheer and encourage you.
