Iron Man Vichy

During the last weekend of August, more than 4 000 athletes compete in Vichy during a double-race weekend with one of the best finish line parties on the circuit.  Tree-lined boulevards laid out in the 19th century, and art-deco buildings add to the town’s nostalgic feel.  Our elegant and well-known city is the perfect host for swimming, cycling, running and finally relaxing thanks to its' many spas.  Most of the time, this is a warm water race, and on top of that this full distance event features a challenging bike course and beautiful run along the waterways of the city.
