Cannes International Triathlon returns for fourth edition

The Polar Cannes International Triathlon will return to the South of France on April 16th for its fourth edition. Offering the unusual combination of distances: 2000 metres of swimming in the Mediterranean, a new 100 kilometre cycle course that includes 1250m of climbing in the Esterel mountains and a 16 kilometre run, it is looking to extend the event’s appeal and increase the 2,000 field that attended in 2016.

Triathletes from some 36 countries raced in the 2016 edition – among them a decent pro field including Andreas Raelert, Daniel Fontana, Bart Aernouts, Leanda Cave and Michelle Vesterby – and with an entry fee of only €150 until December 31st plus all the fun of a three-day festival of triathlon it’s hard to resist joining them.
