On August 18, 2013, Tremblant will be the center of attention, as it will host one of the most important sporting events ever brought to the province of Quebec, the IRONMAN North American Championship Mont-Tremblant. Come cheer on the athletes and watch history in the making for all Quebecers taking part in this second Quebec edition!
A total of 2 500 athletes, including the event’s co Pierre Lavoie, will start their journey at Tremblant’s Beach and Tennis Club in the early morning of August 18. After swimming 3.8 km in Lake Tremblant, they will cycle for 180 km and then run 42.2 km to finally cross the finish line in Tremblant’s pedestrian village.
Spectators will have the opportunity to see the athletes in action along the course. Note that, since vehicles are not allowed on the course, free public transit can bring you from one strategic point to the next throughout the event.
A couple of sites have also been equipped with bleachers for spectators who will have the opportunity to cheer on athletes coming out of the water at Parc Plage and see them cross the finish line at Place des Voyageurs.
