Testimonials
Awesome day and very carefully organised. Super friendly and No egos. My kids attended junior tri 6-9. It was a top event.

Thomas, Genève

It was great fun from a sporting point of view, and the people accompanying me said the same thing. There's plenty of shade to avoid overheating in the sun, great for athletes and supporters alike, an interesting bike course and perfect water for swimming.
