There is no better way to push your body to the limit than to do an Ironman. This incredible feat of athleticism is one of the most intense sporting activities that you can view or partake in, and if you want to do an Ironman where the course is spectacular and the scenery is unbeatable, there is no better option than the Mont-Tremblant Ironman.
This breathtaking triathlon consists of a 2.4-mile swim in Lac Tremblant, 112-mile challenging bike ride through the perfectly mapped out course, and 26.2-mile run (a marathon) along the Mont-Tremblant community and scenery. You can weave your way through the pedestrian village and gaze at all of the shopping areas, dining opportunities, eateries, vintage stores, lodging options, spas, and nearby hikes on the towering peaks.
Are you or another person you know doing the Ironman? It is best to know all about it beforehand so you are super prepared! The swim is in the beautiful Lac Tremblant, so you don’t have to worry about waves or currents. The bike features a gently rolling course that doesn’t have too many intense climbs or steep downhills. And the run is on a rolling course that tests your legs just a little after the intense swim and bike! The race this year is held on August 20th, 2023, providing the perfect temperature for pushing your body to the limits and enjoying the race.
