It’s triathlon season in Mont Tremblant
Tri-mendous success of annual Try A Tri Mont Tremblant
Mont Tremblant is triathlon country, and it was never more evident than on Sunday, July 1 on the shore of Lac Mercier. Over hundred people participated in the annual Try A Tri presented by Tri Action Mont Tremblant and RobFit Mont Tremblant, exceeding expectations again this year.
“The love of triathlon and community spirit was contagious at the Try A Tri” expressed Myrianne Cote, head coach of the Tri Action Mont Tremblant, an elite athlete who has finished each of her multiple Ironman 70.3 Mont Tremblant events on the podium.
Now in its eighth year, this family-friendly event was created to introduce the sport to first-time triathletes and is growing in popularity each year.The Try A Tri included four lengths, three for young athletes and one for those ages 16 and over, to ensure a challenging yet doable distance for all. The open water swim took place in Lac Mercier, with the bike and run segments both on the multifunctional trail. “The relatively short course and untamed event encourages participation over competition,” advised Robert Roy, owner of RobFit Mont Tremblant, and an Ironman certified coach who developed and oversaw the event course.
“We are delighted with the tremendous community support of the Try A Tri and grateful to the event sponsors this year that made it possible” advises Sandra Sabourin, the President of Tri Action Mont Tremblant.
“The remarkable community involvement and remarkable volunteers that support this event contributed to its amazing success of the Tri A Try Mont Tremblant again his year” added Ms. Sabourin. “Over three dozen volunteers were on hand to help direct, oversee and secure the safety of the event participants, each of whom we gratefully thank.”
