- Every year in September, crowds flock to the Promenade des Anglais to see hundreds of competitors in one of the world's most popular triathlons. This, France's first triathlon, was introduced in 1982. Since then, American Mark Allen has dominated the 3.8-kilometer (2.3-mile) swim, 180-kilometer (120-mile) bicycle and 42-kilometer (26-mile) run; having won the event over 10 times. Triathlon association members can take part; places are subject to availability and registration costs around EUR122. Run in tandem with the triathlon is "Avenir," a youngsters' triathlon open to nine-year-olds upwards, which kicks off at 9:30a.
