Triathlon XTRI Canada Man / Woman


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, UK, winner of the 2019 Canada ManWoman race.

“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. »

Of course, the start of swimming in the dark waters of Lac-Mégantic does not fail to impress a good number of triathletes and spectators. Of course the noisy arrival at the bay of sands under the encouragements takes us out of the few minutes of torpor spent in the lake.

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. Always ready to give encouragement or a smile. Starting with you, the omnipresent organizers before, during and after the triathlon. Always ready to give an encouragement or a smile.

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 live Canada Man Canada Woman!”

Perhaps it’s all these reasons that Canada Man/Woman was crowned a #1 race to do in Canada by Triathlon Magazine Canada!
