Ironman Vichy 2017

Good morning Ironman!

The Ironman event just kicked off. We want to wish our guests (we’d better call them hero’s) good and happy Ironman races in #Vichy. For sure you all will have some very relaxing days after the event at Les Bardons. Enjoy!

Nestled in a bend in the Allier River, Vichy is one of France’s most luxurious locations.

With only 90km away from Les Bardons this is a great venue to enjoy the time before and after of this impressive race.

The peak era of this Auvergne spa town saw visitors flocking there to drink its healing waters and bath in its thermal springs. Vichy has kept its reputation as a health retreat, helped along by the reputation of the cosmetic brand named for the town. Tree-lined boulevards laid out in the 19th century, and art-deco buildings such as the Opéra de Vichy, add to the town’s nostalgic feel. Among Vichy’s turn-of-the-century mansions and riverside parks, there’s a rich collection of confectionery shops as well.

Athletes will swim in the beautiful Lake Allier, using the rowing race infrastructure to guide themselves through the course. The easy bike course in the country heads through the regions of Allier and Puy-de-dome, with exceptional views of the Chaine des Volcans d’Auvergne. The day ends with a run course on the shores of Lac d’Allier and through historical Vichy, where hundreds of spectators will line the course to cheer the athletes to the finish.

All the activities for IRONMAN Vichy will be located at the Centre Omnisports Pierre Coulon (registration, expo, transition area, the pasta party, the awards ceremony, the swim start, the finish line and the food court), making this an ideal venue for spectators.
