The lakeside promenade of Geneva will be transformed by La Tour Geneva Triathlon this July 6-7 with fitness enthusiasts pounding the streets, splashing into the lake and setting off on their bikes into the fields around the city. 

La Tour Geneva Triathlon

If you have ever been thinking about doing a triathlon, this is the event for you. Welcoming and supportive of beginners and professionals alike, there are seven different race formats to suit all levels. There are also races for children, with age categories from 6-10 and 11-13, so you can make it a real family day out.

There's plenty of support offered to runners, from warm-up sessions to first aid tents to refreshment stands. Every entrant received a race pack with essential kit such as bibs and swimming caps, but also goodies from partners of the triathlon.

The seven different race categories cover a wide range of difficulty levels, with something to suit everyone (well, everyone who wants to do a triathlon!).

  • Junior - ages 11-13 (200m swim, 1,5km run)
