Starting at the Lac de St-Jean-Pla-de-Corts, the route takes in the Col de Llauro, Col de Fourtou and Col Xatard before heading back to Amélie-les-Bains and passing the bike to run transition ( you may enter transition). The route then heads off through Arles-sur-Tech, Corsavy, Col de la Descarga and the Refuge de Batère before turning around and heading back to Corsavy then onto Montferrer, Le Tech, Col de Sous, Prats De Mollo (Bag drop point), Col D’Ares, Prats de Mollo, Le Tech, La Forge del Mitg, Can Partère, Arles-sur-Tech and finally back into Amélie-les-Bains and the bike to run transition (T2).

The bike leg is a huge challenge, one of the most epic in Ironman Distance events available in the World today, so be prepared! It takes in the most spectacular scenery of the Vallespir.  

This leg is completely self supported with no aid stations but will have water stops marked. Competitors will be allowed to go into Transition 2 to pick up whatever they need as well as the bag drop in Prats de Mollo. The bike cut off time will be  21H00 so all competitors must have bike lights and warm clothing available in their BLACK BAG (destined for Prats de Mollo).

All FFTRI Regulations will be adhered to.

The XXL Run

The road run is 42km with 1475m of gained altitude (Strava), and offers stunning views down into Amélie-les-Bains. It starts by crossing over the river “Tech” and running through the town  of Amelie before climbing past the famous Château Fort les Bains and tracing the lines of the Gorges du Mondony.

Spectacular views continue on the way up through Mas Pagris before finally heading back at the turn around point dropping down to Amélie-les-Bains. You then enjoy a flatish section running along the river before climbing through Palalda and then back towards Amelie. Heading towards Arles you take a large track which takes you up towards the beautiful town of Montbolo before the final spectacular descent back into Amélie.

The finish is in the Park at the Espace Méditerranée in Amélie-les-Bains, 66110 France.
