German legends to headline Cannes International 2017

Sebastian Kienle and Andreas Raelert head to France in April

The Cannes International Triathlon (www.cannes-international-triathlon.com), on Sunday 16th April 2017, is one of the first major ‘middle’ distance events of the European season.

This year comprising a course of 2km swimming, 100km cycling and 16km running, it is an event that I can highly recommend, having visited and taken part in the 2015 edition myself.

If you want to combine the beauty of the Côte d’Azur with a run course that passes the exclusive boutiques of practically every major fashion brand in the world, this is the race for you. On a purely practical note, easy access via Nice airport and a central Cannes location make this a very realistic option for a ‘long weekend’ early season race. Genuinely, highly recommended.

Always attracting top quality athletes in the Pro division, confirmed already for 2017 are the 2014 IRONMAN World Champion, Sebastian Kienle, plus multiple IRONMAN World Championship podium finisher, Andreas Raelert.

Kienle finished third two years ago, with Raelert taking the same spot 12 months later.
