Free Trip Competition Winners Announced

Press Release / 15.04.2019

At the beginning of February, the Canada Man/Woman organization team launched a contest: the 1st prize winner would be awarded a free registration, air transportation to Montreal and lodging in Lac-Mégantic; the second prize winners would be awarded free registration and lodging; and the third prize winners, a free registration. The winners were chosen on the basis of their social engagement in their community. Here who they are:

1st prize : Cristina Sonzogni (Italy)

2nd prize : Carmela Vergura (Italy), Rodrigo Domingo-Martin (Spain)

3rd prize : Andres Fernandez (Costa Rica), Saul Bautista (Mexico), Ramòn Espinosa-Solis (Mexico), Claudio Boschini (Italy), Gerardo Langone (Italy).

The third edition of Lac-Mégantic’s Canada Man/Woman Extreme Triathlon will be presented on July 7th, 2019. At the close of this edition, athletes from 24 countries, 9 Canadian provinces, and 17 American states will have lined up at the start of this unique challenge. 

Lac-Mégantic’s Canada Man/Woman’s uniqueness stems from its wild, intense, and authentic character. As athletes enter the Lac Mégantic waters at dawn, they will embark upon the experience of a lifetime, one that goes way beyond a race against the clock. Participants will brave the cold water for 3.8 km before taking in breathtaking scenery as they complete a 180 km biking section with an elevation change of 2 500 m before finally running 42 km, for the most part along running trails that will take them through the forest, amidst the Canadian wilderness, facing yet another elevation change of 1 600 m.

The goal: reach the summit of Mount Mégantic, a viewpoint that towers over the region. The Triathlon Canada Magazine has stated that the Canada Man/Woman was the #1 among the 10 Must Do Races in Canada in 2019.

Canada Man/Woman is part of the XTRI WORLD TOUR, a series of extreme triathlons that includes the Norseman, the Celtman, the Alaskaman, the Swedeman, the Janosik, the Icon, the Hispaman, and the Patagonman. What’s more, winners of the Canada Man/Woman Extreme Triathlon will earn passes to participate in the 2020 Xtri World Championship presented in Norway, during the Norseman. Four (4) chances to participate in the 2020 Norseman will also be drawn among participants.
