Canada Man/Canada Woman Xtrem Triathlon
July 9th, 2017
Canada Man/Canada Woman is the ultimate long-distance triathlon! It pays tribute to the first Canadians who successfully adapted to nature’s harsh elements and made Quebec’s forests and expansive territory their homeland and livelihood.
Canada Man/Canada Woman differs from the classic long-distance triathlon where thousands of volunteers are present to support you at every turn. As in pioneer life, you will have only yourself to rely on throughout the many sections apart from the support of your limited assistance team and your best friend. The latter will follow you throughout this marathon that will unfold in the heart of the Canadian forest.
In a nutshell:
A breathtaking course amid the Canadian forest and mountains that will push you to successively complete:
*A 3.8 km swim on Lac Mégantic, starting at dawn;
*180 km of biking along the Route des Sommets with an elevation gain of 2500 m;
*42 km of running along roads and trails with the ultimate finish line at the summit of Mont-Mégantic…an elevation gain of 1 200 m by the time you reach the Mont-Mégantic Observatory!
This is the most intense, wild, and beautiful triathlon in North America.
Reach the stars before midnight!
