The city of Deauville and its hinterland make this triathlon an exceptional place for the practice of triple effort. Here are the highlights of the course:

Swimming at sea
The triathletes will first face the English Channel, a swimming part at sea which remains rare in triathlon events. They will have to face the waves as well as the sea currents to be able to continue with the cycling, all in a water that remains relatively cool, even with a wetsuit.

The Saint Lawrence coast
This is the major difficulty of the course. From the 2nd kilometer, the runners will start the ascent of a very technical slope, 200m at 15% average. This is where the spectators come in large numbers to create an atmosphere worthy of the greatest mountain passes. The Saint Laurent hill has become over the years a real symbol by its difficulty. However, it is still particularly appreciated by climbers, especially because of the atmosphere that reigns there.

The Pays d'Auge
The triathletes will take the back country of Deauville, in the countryside of the Pays d'Auge, the opportunity to discover a real postcard scenery with its half-timbered houses, its stud farms and its apple trees, typical of the Normandy region.

The Boards
To finish the event in beauty, the participants will run on the famous boards of Deauville, an atypical way to pass on this inescapable place of the city, to finish on the prestigious Avenue Lucien Barrière, in front of the Normandy Barrière hotel.
