The Communauté de Communes des Monts de Lacaune et de la Montagne du Haut-Languedoc is an ideal place to practice triathlon, 3H30 from Barcelona and very close to the international airports of Montpellier and Toulouse (1H15).
2 lakes with pure and temperate waters (about 22°C) to allow all swimming distances from 375m to 3kms.
Cycling routes on beautiful hilly roads with also some selective passes (Col du Cabaretou, Col de Fontfroide, Col Frajure, Col de la Bane...). And above all, little traffic!
And running courses in the heart of the charming village of Nages or in the organic area of the Source Salvetat.
A whole programme of 5 triathlons to be run or not, as it is always possible to register for one or other of the 5 triathlons proposed in the Haut-Languedoc:
- on July 10th a selective M triathlon starting in Nages, which crosses many of the beautiful villages of the community of communes
- on July 11th an XS triathlon in relay by team of 3 for the show on the banks of the Lake of Laouzas
- on July 12th an XS triathlon in 2 legs in the heart of the village of La Salvetat-sur-Agoût
- 13 July: a magnificent S triathlon (with the possibility of starting the S duathlon) around the Lac de la Raviège
- on 14 July a triathlon L (3km/81km/19km) not to be missed
Discover quickly in details the program and the description of the courses, but also the concept of linking these 5 triathlons in 5 days! An unforgettable adventure in which already a hundred triathletes participate each year... And not forgetting, since 2021, the possibility for cadets to compete in 4 triathlons in 4 days like the elites, a unique experience for young people, who have the honour of the media like the "pros".
It's a wonderful adventure in a region that smells of holidays. Every year, more and more clubs make it a trip with friends or family. The organisation can even help you find accommodation in the same hotels as the elite. It welcomes amateurs in the same conditions with physiotherapists every evening, lunches in the mgen FitDays village,... conditions to live a unique and magical moment of triathlon. Don't hesitate to take part in the only triathlon stage tour. Cadets can also take part in 3 linked stages.
And the youngsters (juniors + U23) are honoured because, like the elites, they have access to a bonus table and will wear the leader jerseys of best youngster on the evening of each stage as well as the matching tri-function the next day in the race. This is an opportunity to measure themselves against the elite and to take part in a high-level competition in order to gain experience, but also to be honoured by television.
To register for the 4 linked stages ( M SWIMMING ON 10/07/22 + XS SWIMMING ON 11/07/22 + double XS LA SALVETAT-SUR-AGOUT ON 12/07/22 + S LA SALVETAT SUR AGOUT ON 13/07), click quickly on the button below to register online for the 4 days (price list until 25 October 2021!)

And finally 19km of race in 3 loops to pass again at each passage on the site of the FitDays village under the "Ola" of the public.
