Chris Eaton and Matt Thompson race this weekend (Sunday 17th August 2014) at the Subaru Ironman North American Championships.
The quaint, rustic village of Mont-Tremblant is home to the North American IRONMAN Championships. The surrounding area is known for its hiking, skiing, kayaking, golfing and cycling—making it an idyllic location for IRONMAN athletes and their families and friends. The village of Mont-Tremblant and its surrounding communities offer a walkable, easily navigable location for all your race-week activities.
Athletes will start the 2.4-mile (3.8 km) swim in Tremblant Lake, which in August boasts comfortably warm, wetsuit-legal temperatures. The quarter-mile run to T1 is lined with a soft red carpet, and cheering spectators. The two-loop, 112-mile (180 km) bike course runs through Mont-Tremblant’s forests and low lying mountains, offering challenging elevations and highly spectator-friendly vantage points. The two-loop, 26.2-mile (42.2 km) run course takes full advantage of the famous Le P’tit Train du Nord, a former railway bed turned into the longest linear park in Canada. The crushed gravel is soft on the feet, and lined with enthusiastic spectators. The run takes runners past a waterfall alongside Tremblant Lake and into the heart of the pedestrian village of Tremblant Resort.
