The VentouxMan is a long distance triathlon : 2km swim , 90km cycling and 20km running. The whole event takes place in the Vaucluse department.
For unaccompanied athletes: a bus system will be set up the day of the race in order to get you from arrival to departure (more on shuttle buses)
SWIM: 2KM – Time limit: 1h00
The start will be the lake of Girardes, at Lapalud.
Two 1000m loops with an Australian swim exit to bring some show on the beach !
BIKE 90KM – Time limit : 7h00 (including swim)
A 90km race with 2300m D+
The 35 first kms, but similar elevation profile to 2018 (flat, between vines and lavander fields).
An ascent to the Col de Champ Paga by the typical village of La Roque-Alric.
A new approach of Bédoin by the beautiful Col de la Madeleine (not the big one in Savoie…)

RUN 20KM – Time limit : 10h (full course)
4 loops of 5 km, for the atmosphere and to stay close to your friends and family !
2 aid stations, including the one in the Forest elected “best atmosphere” !
A buffet of arrival and massages to recover from your efforts, in the very nice Camping Le Mont Serein.
Recommended route to follow the race.
VENTOUXMAN EXPERIENCE 28KM + 10KM – Time limit : 7h (including bike + run)
28 km cycling in mass-start, from Bédoin. Drafting allowed but not useful so long…
- 21 km ascent with 1600 m elevation gain, the worldwide famous Mont Ventoux south face.
- Followed by a short downhill (6km + 1km flat) from the summit until the station du Mont Serein
10 km running (2 laps) on the mix (road/trail) and panoramic course of the Ventouxman.
As in Triathlon, the two disciplines are in a row (bike is left in a “bike park” with a dedicated place) and the timing is not stopped ! A great challenge to learn to know the VentouxMan !
