Who we are and where we come from
The 4vita program is organized and operated by the 4vita Association based in Nice, France. We are an independent insitution that organizes, develops and implements the 4vita concept with all kind of sport events. The 4vita Association is working with different event organizers all over Europe and currently all races of the international TriStar Race Series have joined the program.
Since we started organizing triathlon events more than 10 years ago, we are engaged in the two core elements of 4vita: environment and health. How can we set up an event with thousands of athletes, spectators and staff members without affecting negatively the environment, how can we actively protect it? How can we encourage many people to show a tremendous performance in endurance sports without affecting health but helping them to go for a healthy way of doing sport?
Time and again we worked on solutions and this finally led us to establish a separate program for this purpose: 4vita. Since then this program is developed on and in cooperation with further experts we keep on making events sustainable.
The 4vita program was first developed in 2007 and then since 2008 realized with the Triangle Ironman races in France, Monaco and Austria until 2009. From the year 2009 on it is realized with all TriStar races starting with the TriStar200 Andalucía.
This is who we are. What is now our VISION? Here you learn more about it.
