The Evergreen Endurance Triathlon

Have you got what it takes to complete what’s set to become one of the most intense endurance races in the Alps? As part of the Source Magazine #SummerofAdventure, we’ve teamed up with Evergreen Endurance to promote their incredible challenge.

The thing we love most about Evergreen Endurance is there mantra ‘hammer the race, leave no trace’. The concept places environmental responsibility at the forefront of the challenge itself, and the organisers have created something very special indeed.

Taking place on 12th and 13th September 2015, Evergreen Endurance breaks down into three different race categories.

Evergreen 228

Billed as the world’s toughest, most beautiful and most environmentally responsible iron-distance event, prepare yourself for:

  • A 4km, two loop swim around Lake Montriond with an Australian exit
  • T1 on the banks of Lake Montriond
  • A 181km bike race from Lake Montriond to Chamonix
  • T2 in Chamonix at the foot of L’eglise Saint-Michel
  • A 43km trail run with mountain vistas of epic proportions

There’s a cumulative altitude gain of over 7500m so you’ll need to train extra hard for this race.


Evergreen 118

Described as the ‘little brother’ of the 228, this race is for those on the build-up for an extreme iron distance, but it’s certainly not for the feint-hearted.

  • A 2 km, single loop swim around Lake Montriond
  • T1 on the banks of Lake Montriond
  • A 85km bike race with both climbs and a flatter ‘time trialling’ style all the way to Chamonix
  • T2 in Chamonix at the foot of L’eglise Saint-Michel
  • A 21km run through winding trails

In this race the total altitude gain is over 3200m


Evergreen 228 Relay

Making the event into a team effort, the 228 Relay gives you the chance to do your preferred part of the race – the swim, bike or run – as part of a team. The same race spec as the Evergreen 228 applies!


In the run up to the first Evergreen Endurance race Source Magazine will be keeping you posted on all event details, including interviews with the organisers, training plans, eco impacts and much more. But for now, if you’d like to stake your claim on the athlete list for this most special event, you’d better register to take part.
