The iconic Canada Man/Woman triathlon was scheduled to start exactly one month from today – unfortunately due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic athletes won’t be able to challenge themselves at one of the sport’s most challenging events.
Renowned as one of the world’s toughest triathlon races, Canada Man/Woman takes place in Lac-Megantic, Que. and is designed to “pay tribute to the first Canadians that settled in the Eastern Townships.
The early-morning race start in the dark has athletes complete a 3.8 km swim in Lac-Méganitc. That’s followed by a challenging 180 km bike ride that follows the Routes des Sommets and includes 2500 m of climbing. The 42 km follows roads and trails before ending with a climb up Mont-Mégantic to the finish – all told the run course includes over 1,200 m of climbing.
Today Endurance Sports TV announced that it is making the original shows from the three Canada Man/Woman races (2017 to 2019) available for free on endurance sports TV.
