We are extremely happy to offer you the opportunity to take part in a 5 km or 10 km race during the Triathlon Esprit de Montréal. Instead of staying on the sideline, why not jump in and race with us!
It is recommended to pick-up your race packet, on Friday before the race in the Cafeteria at the Olympic Basin. See full schedule here. If you cannot make it, please make sure you arrive at least two hours before your wave start time.
You must pick-up your timing chip at the green Sportstats tent on race day only near the big white tent. The chip has to be worn on the ankle and returned at the finish line. There will be a $75 fee if you do not return your chip.
Athletes who are taking part in a running race need to wear their race bib; There is no need for body marking.
All finishers will receive a finisher's medal and will be able to print a certificate after the race.
A light snack will be served after your race.
The Athletes' Quarters have been fully renovated in 2016. We now have access to brand new toilets and showers. On the cycle course, there are 2 port-o-johns located at the “Pits Area”. On the run course there are 2 port-o-johns at the far end of the basin. There are many indoor toilets at the Garage Grand-Prix on the north side of the basin.
Our medical staff will keep an eye on our athletes throughout the race. The medical staff has the right to stop any participant during the race for his/her own safety. However, please remember that if a medic stops you, or if you receive medical attention on the course, this does not mean that you will be disqualified.
Please note that we will have numerous "first responders" circling the course. The main medical area with our race doctor is located in the Athletes' Quarters close to the finish line.
In order to receive a massage, you MUST take a shower first (available in the Athletes' Quarters – long grey building along the finish line). Massages will be available near the awards tent for all triathletes for a minimal fee.
