Saturday 8 August
From 2019, the Nyon Triathlon continues to broaden the races offered and suggests a new challenge! The aquathlon is a discipline which combines swimming (in the lake) and running. In order to make this race more popular and more attractive, a lighter format is proposed, different from traditional aquathlons which you may have seen before…
You will start with a 250 m swim, followed by a 2.5 km run. After this first round, you will plunge again for the second round and end the race by foot. In total? 500 m swimming and 5 km running. Nothing but happiness!
To note also that a transition park will be at your disposal by the water where you can switch from your swim wear to running gear.
So, are you intrigued? Up for the challenge? Motivated? The race will take place on Saturday at the end of the day, after the Team Famille races. Thanks to this schedule, you can participate in the traditional triathlon the next day as well!
Whether you are looking for a challenge to combine both races on Saturday and Sunday, or whether the bike course of the Nyon triathlon doesn’t appeal to you (#ToughClimb), this category is meant for you!
But be quick! Since this is the first edition of the aquathlon, the number of spots is limited! So don’t hesitate and register as soon as possibe, before the races are fully booked!
12:30 – 16:15 : registrations (according to the available place, 45 min before the start) and bib distribution.
16:00 : Opening of bike parc (by the lake)
17:50 : Awards ceremony
