ESPRIT DE MONTRÉAL
The information contained in this section is specific to athletes who wish to complete the TRY-A-TRI distance.
The 375 m swim takes place in the Olympic rowing basin. The current-free basin is similar to a 2 km long, 100-meter wide and 3-meter deep swimming pool. The water is constantly tested and rated superior for swimming.
Based on past experiences, the water temperature is expected to be around 21°C/ 72°F.
- Look for cables under the water normally used for the rowing lanes. Follow a cable and keep yourself in a straight line!
- Upon exiting the water, you must run over the bridge to cross over the runners. If you have a medical problem and cannot climb stairs, you may notify the swim exit marshall and run beside the bridge. Runners will have the right-of-way and you must stop for the runners. The marshall will escort you across the runners' path.
The 10 km bike portion of the race consists of completing two (2) laps around the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, which is the site of the Formula One Canadian Grand-Prix. The 4.3 km loop has the best road surface in North America.
Your lap count will be shown on a giant screen. You name and bib number will appear on the monitor on lap 1, 2. When you see your name with the number 2, you must exit.

Our “pits” area is located right before the hairpin, on the left-hand side of the track. The aid station will provide washrooms, bike mechanic, massage and medical personnel.
IMPORTANT: Although there is no time limit to complete the bike course, please remember that this is a race. Officials have the right to remove athletes from the Circuit, if they are considered to be a safety concern for other athletes.
Since the bike course is counter-clock wise on the Circuit, all cyclists should stay left except to pass. Remember to never cut corners, as faster cyclists may be coming from behind. As you near the completion of your final lap, stay right as you approach the hairpin in order to prepare to exit the Circuit.
No Bike Inspectation
There will be no bike inspection. You are responsible for the safety of your equipment. Mechanics from MARTIN SWISS CYCLE will be on hand at registration and during the race to help you with any minor repairs or adjustments.
The 2.5 km run starts at the back of the Transition Area where you will run behind the big white tent directly onto the basin wall. At the 1000 meter mark, you will turn to run on the quay crossing the water. Not only will you be able to say that you completed a triathlon, but you'll be able to brag that you ran on water! Once across the water, run straight to the finish line!
Aid Stations: There is one water stop as you get on the basin wall which will provide water and Pro-Circuit products.
