After two editions cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Mont-Blanc International Triathlon is back stronger than ever on the Passy site with a record participation of more than 2,200 triathletes in search of the summits. This year, five race formats open to individuals and relays are proposed to triathletes: Kids 8-11 years, Discovery, Sprint, Olympic and Half.
Victim of their success, the Sprint and Olympic individual and relay formats are fully booked, confirming that the lovers of the Passy site are eager to return to this internationally renowned setting.
In a majestic setting, between lake and mountain, each race will allow you to discover the hidden treasures of Passy, facing the highest peak in Europe.
The start of the swim will take place at the Passy Lake facing the mythical Mont-Blanc.
