Aquathlon

Saturday 7 August

Since 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!

Swiss Triathlon FunPass

For races without ranking or referees, a FunPass is required by Swiss Triathlon. It costs CHF 3.00 and allows you to become a member of the Swiss Triathlon Federation. In the races where it is required, the competition rules are not applied. Swiss Triathlon thus wishes to offer a form of event that is fun, relaxed and accessible to all. This contribution allows to develop this type of project, to increase its quality while allowing the development of triathlon in our country.

In Nyon, the EasyPass is necessary for the Discovery race and the Aquathlon. More information is available on the Swiss Triathlon website.

The FunPass must be purchased at the time of registration on the Datasport platform. A person with an annual license (StartPass) does not need to purchase a FunPass.
