As an organizer, we’d like to describe Canada Man/Woman, but we don’t think we’re in the best position to do it!
Caroline Livesey, United Kingdom, winner of 2019 Canada Man/ Woman.
“Gross, extraordinary, exhilarating. The race was brutal, it was beautiful, relentless and as hard physically as anything I’ve ever done. It is difficult to describe the unique beauty of the landscapes, the endless roads and the huge lakes surrounded by steep and wooded hills. You have to live it to believe it. »
Benoît Wilmet, Belgium
“Of course the wind is an ideal and emotional prelude to the day’s effort.
Bien sûr le départ de la natation dans les eaux sombres du Lac-Mégantic ne manque pas d’impressionner bon nombre de triathlètes et de spectateurs.Bien sûr l’arrivée bruyante à la baie des sables sous les encouragements nous sort délicieusement des quelques dizaines de minutes de torpeur passées dans le lac.
Of course the bike route is the image of your region, demanding and beautiful.
Of course running is a terrible effort and offered us an alternation of suffering and wonder.
Of course the mutual aid between teams and athletes is a eulogy to sportsmanship.
Of course the arrival under the stars is a must.
BUT what makes your ordeal an ordeal like no other is the population of your region. Starting with you ubiquitous organizers before, during and after the triathlon. Toujours prêts à prodiguer un encouragement ou un sourire.
But also to all those people we met along the way who unfailingly encouraged us from the first to the last with a trumpet, a bell or a war cry urging us not to let go.
THANK YOU AND LONG LIFE IN CANADA MAN/CANADA WOMAN! »
