A sporting and friendly edition !
Sunday morning, nearly 5,000 triathletes took the start of the Garmin Triathlon de Paris by diving into the waters (23°C) of the Canal de l'Ourcq. They set off on the swim course towards the unique transition zone located in the Parc de la Villette where their bikes were waiting for them to cross Paris in front of many emblematic landmarks: the Place de la Bastille, the Louvre Museum, the Eiffel Tower, the Bois de Boulogne and the Arc de Triomphe. They then continued with the run before crossing the finish line. Two formats were offered to participants: the Olympic M format (1,500m swim, 40km bike and 10km run) and the Sprint S format (500m swim, 20km bike and 6km run).
The home stretch !
On Sunday, 26 June, thousands of triathletes will participate in the return of the Garmin Triathlon de Paris. They will depart on a journey through Paris, from the Parc de la Villette to the capital centre, passing by numerous emblematic landmarks. The course will use roads, which will be entirely closed to traffic, allowing the athletes to take full advantage of the City of Light. Whether individually in a relay, participants will enjoy a unique experience.
Garmin Triathlon de Paris returns to the French capital
Two years before the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games and after a two-year absence due to the health crisis, the Garmin Triathlon de Paris is back. Regardless of the distance chosen, the S "Sprint" format (500 m swimming, 20 km cycling and 6 km running) or the M "Olympic" format (1,500 m swimming, 40 km cycling and 10 km running), participants will pass by some of the capital's most iconic landmarks: the place de la Bastille, the Louvre Museum, the Eiffel Tower, the bois de Boulogne and the Arc de Triomphe.
