"In the heart of the Southern Alps, 3000 hectares of turquoise water as far as the eye can see..."
Some even say that it is a part of the Mediterranean that seems to have been placed at the foot of the Alps. The swimrun Embrun is a real piece of paradise that you will discover at Lac de Serre-Ponçon located at an altitude of 780m, it reflects in its waters the countless peaks perched at more than 2000m. Faced with this vast expanse of turquoise blue water, which makes it the second largest artificial lake in Europe, time seems to have stood still. Everything is in place to a life-size swimrun.
Discover below the description of the race formats (SPRINT / CLASSIC / HALF ÖTILLÖ MERIT RACE).
