Ironman Vichy – Auvergne, France

2017 Athletes’ Choice Awards: Overall Satisfaction, Best Post-Race Celebration
*Click here for the full list of the 2017 IRONMAN Athletes’ Choice Award winners.

Nestled in a bend in the Allier River, Vichy is one of France’s most luxurious locations. The peak era of this Auvergne spa town saw visitors flocking there to drink its healing waters and bath in its thermal springs. Vichy has kept its reputation as a health retreat, helped along by the reputation of the cosmetic brand named for the town. Tree-lined boulevards laid out in the 19th century, and art-deco buildings such as the Opéra de Vichy, add to the town’s nostalgic feel. Among Vichy’s turn-of-the-century mansions and riverside parks, there’s a rich collection of confectionery shops as well.

Athletes will swim in the beautiful Lake Allier, using the rowing race infrastructure to guide themselves through the course. The bike course in the countryside offers exceptional views of the Chaine des Volcans d’Auvergne. The day ends with a run course on the shores of Lac d’Allier and through historical Vichy, where hundreds of spectators will line the course to cheer the athletes to the finish.

All the activities for IRONMAN Vichy will be located at the Centre Omnisports Pierre Coulon (registration, expo, transition area, the pasta party, the awards ceremony, the swim start, the finish line, and the food court), making this an ideal venue for spectators.

IRONMAN Vichy 2019 offers 40 qualifying slots for the 2020 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
