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