  • Mont Tremblant Triathlon Challenge was a cooker


    What an incredibly HOT weekend it was for our Tremblant Challengers. None of us were adaptedforthose conditions yet!! Thank goodness we weren't really racing.

  • Swim Buddy Program and Cycle Challenge


    Due to the current rules, we are still not able to gather in a group of more than 5 people, so we suggest that when heading out, pack your own water and snacks so you don't have to stop at stores without a mask on, however, if you are doing a long-distance ride/run that will require that you stop to restock your hydration, carry a mask in a plastic bag so you are prepared or have a family member meet you with the necessary supplies so you can restock. GROUP CYCLING
    Our club is sanctioned through Triathlon Ontario. They have made it clear that we are not permitted to gather in a group of more than 5 and we must maintain a physical distance of ....

  • Why now IS NOT the time to retire as a Triathlete

    Don't throw down the transition towel just yet! Having a challenge or goal is what drives people forward. For athletes, having a goal is our raison d'être.When our goals are taken away it can leave us feeling lost and unmotivated. For many of us, our goals have been shattered due to races being canceled. Over the past couple of months, I have personally seen motivation levels go up and down like the hillsin the Gatineau's.If you are feeling this way, I want you to know that you arecompletely normal. "If you are feeling motivational ups and downs, I want you to know that you arecompletely normal."
    When we retire from work, we are given retirement classesto prepare us for no ....

  • Rideau Lakes Cycling Challenge

    Although the RLCT is canceled this year, we want to encourage our members to complete it virtually in some capacity. The Rideau Lakes Cycling Tour is one of the country's longest-running cycling events. The two-day ride takes you through picturesque towns and villages along the Rideau Lakes waterway to the shores of Lake Ontario. Traditionally two days, four routes. 220 to 420 kms. With the tour being canceled we realize that many people may have stopped training for the event and may not be in a position to complete the 220 to 420kms that they would have, had the tour been a go, soooooo.....we are asking our members,during the week of June 8th, to do two long rides back to back ....
