One of the oldest and most famous triathlon competitions is the Embrunman Triathlon. Every year since 1984, numerous athletes compete in the various disciplines, bringing to life the Embrunman venue in the Hautes-Alpes. The events starts on the day of the Assumption of Mary, August 15. Beside the full distance triathlon, also a duathlon, a short triathlon and a children's triathlon are offered every year by the organizer Gerald Iacono.

Long Distance Disciplines

Besides the Olympic distance, the Embrunman Triathlon is also held in a long distance version. This is divided into the three disciplines. Swimming (3.8 km) , cycling (180 km) and running (42.2 km)

The Embrunman swimming part takes place in Lac de Serre-Ponçon, the largest water reservoir in the Alpes. Every year, the athletes start at 6 a.m. and fight their way to the finish through the lake, which is equipped with light buoys, until dusk. But the bike distance is also a challenge. Here it is a matter of reaching the highest point, the Col d'lzoard, which lies at an altitude of 2360m. Just like the swim distance, the marathon course has to be run twice.

Embrunman Prize Money

Of course, the participants of the Embrunman Triathlon do not go empty handed. The Embrunman prize money is divided equally between men and women and ranges from four to six figures, depending on the placing.
