Cool Off at XTERRA Quebec

XTERRA Quebec on August 12th-13th is the second of three XTERRA Ontario races. XTERRA Mine Over Matter was a great success on June 17th, and  XTERRA Sleeping Giant will take place on August 26th.

On August 12th, XTERRA Quebec will feature a triathlon, a sprint triathlon, and a duathlon. On August 13th, three trail runs, and a youth duathlon will begin at 9AM.

The standard triathlon will consist of a 1.2k swim, a 25k bike, and a 10k run.

“You will begin your challenge in the majestic Lac Delage at the Manoir du Lac Delage in a natural and enchanting setting,” said race director, Alain Deraspe. “You will then embark on bike trails developed especially for mountain biking.  To finish, it is to the race of “trail” that you will have to give everything between the roots, rocks, climbs and descents to rally the arrival arch.”

Three trail runs will be offered on Sunday: a 12k race, an 8k race, and a 1k kids’ run. A youth duathlon will also take place on Sunday.

The XTERRA Quebec standard triathlon has a total of 15 age group selection slots for the World Championships held in Maui, Hawaii on October 29th, 2017.

Additionally, this race will also be a qualifying race for the ITU 2018 Cross-Triathlon World Championship to be held in Odense, Denmark.
