Parcours - Triathlon Special & Cross-Duathlon
Official program LCMT Triathlon “King of the Ardennes”
Because of the inondations last summer and the current drought, no open swimming water in the Ardennes will actually be authorized to organize swimming contests. We had no other choice than to cancel all swimming for this year's edition. It will be in fact a 'DUATHLON' now. Here you find all facts and figures.
Thursday 26 May: 132 km cycling (see the CYCLO-parcours to learn more, triathlon riders will start always 3 minutes before the other CYCLO-riders and 3 minutes after the start of the COMBI-riders) & 14 km running (2 laps of 7 km each)
Friday 27 May: 143 km cycling (the 'large'-distance) and 14 km running
Saturday 28 May: 134 km cycling and 14 km running
All together good for 409 km cycling and 42 km running in 3 days. Please pay attention on how the time-distances will be calculated on day 3 (see the 'table' with all calculations at the end of the Stage 3-presentation on the CYCLO-parcours page).
