The triathletes will then tackle a fabulous biking section on a road that will take them along Lac Mégantic, towards Piopolis. Of course, there will be good ribs to climb on this very beautiful 20 km course, since the route borrows a section of CANADA MAN/WOMAN Extreme.
To complete the triathlon, athletes will have to run 5 km in the trails of Baie-des-Sables Park. The finish line will be at the park, on the shores of Lac Mégantic.
