The race will set off from the emblematic Veillat Beach, opposite Saint-Raphaël Casino with a morning start offering a unique panoramic view of the bay. This is a relaxing place where the Mediterranean waters are regularly tested by the local authorities to offer swimmers top quality water!
A 750-metre lap will be set up, heading towards Santa Lucia marina with buoys marking out the course. Once out of the water, competitors must cross the beach, take the observation tower ramp, and at the end they will find the bike park for an intense transition!

The S race format includes a 20km cycling course. On leaving the bike park, triathletes will take the Corniche d’Or road towards the Côte d’Azur.
This course can be done by everyone as there are no major difficulties. Each competitor will complete a roundtrip by making a U-turn at the Agay central roundabout. This route travels along the seaside, passing via Le Dramont, a major site in the 1944 D-Day landings.
This is an ideal course for participants challenging themselves for the first time in a triathlon and will definitely provide an adrenaline rush for the more experienced and advanced competitors.

The Saint-Raphaël Triathlon will be one of the first of the season in Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur.
The organising team has therefore chosen a route by the sea heading towards Santa Lucia marina. Two laps will be completed for the Sprint Race format, totalling about 5km. The halfway point of this course will be at the Yacht Club.
The course has also been set up so that spectators and Saint-Raphaël locals can enjoy the show and encourage all the runners. The finish line will be in the Bonaparte Garden by the Saint-Raphaël angel for a truly special moment!

Like the Sprint race format, the swimming race will start on Veillat Beach in Saint-Raphaël, a nice sandy beach almost 400 metres wide and the most central in the seaside resort next to the Vieux Port. This is the most popular beach during the summer period. For this event, it will host the triathletes for a mass wave start. Swimmers will set off for two 750-metre laps with an Australian exit for the great enjoyment of spectators!
After this performance, competitors will cross the beach and climb a few metres up the ramp to the bike park for an intense changeover!

The M Course will cover the same 12km between Saint-Raphaël and the beautiful bay of Agay that the sprint competitors completed earlier in the morning.
Once they arrive at Agay central roundabout, competitors will continue their route along Avenue des Golfs, which will lead them to the entrance of the Estérel Massif a few kilometres further on.
This very pretty and selective lap covers an additional 20 km and will demand a great biking performance. The slopes throughout this massif, characterised by its red rocks, will make all the difference and the viewpoint around Rocher Saint Barthélémy will afford unforgettable sights. The downhill ride to Cap Roux will be quite an adventure for the triathletes before they head back along Corniche d'Or road towards Saint-Raphaël for the home stretch that will require stamina and power.
Managing this effort, before undertaking the run, will be the key to this 44km race that everyone is sure to love!

All the triathletes will finish by climbing the ramp to Bonaparte Garden and pushing themselves for the last two hundred metres in a great atmosphere that we are preparing for you!
