The rumors and anticipation can end because it is now official, Ironman Mont-Tremblant is here and the inaugural race will take place on Sunday August 19, 2012.
It is a five year agreement with the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) that is renewable after 2016. The government of Quebec will support the event with traffic management on race day, along with an investment of 6 million dollars to improve the quality of the roads that the race will utilize.

Athletes will then embark on the two-loop, 26.2-mile (42.2 km) run course into the heart of the pedestrian village of Tremblant Resort.
