BEARMAN is about taking triathlon back to its roots.

BEARMAN is an IRONMAN distance and half IRONMAN distance extreme triathlon which takes place in the most southerly valley in France  ‘Le Vallespir’. The Pyrénées provide considerable and spectacular elevations with the Mediterranean Sea offering the perfect backdrop for this truly epic event. It is simply one of the most scenic parts of the world to swim, ride and run.

Project 8848

28 people, 22 hours, +8848m of elevation.

“The hardest triathlon on Planet Earth”

This journey is made for those of you who truly want to discover your limits, for those willing to suffer whilst nobody is watching and for those who have nothing to prove.


Few are invited to start this Journey (only Bearman Finishers) and even fewer will finish. This particular BEARMAN “Experience” is not validated by the FFTRI as it is “OUTSIDE THE BOX”.

To be considered, you will need simply your full name, your original dossard number and your year of BEARMAN competition. We will then contact you with all the details in the New Year. Only do this if you have already completed the BEARMAN XXL in previous years.

If your application is successful there will be an entrance fee of 200€.
