Ironman 70.3 Mont Tremblant results 2012

The inaugural event of any Ironman is always exciting, but Ironman 70.3 Mont Tremblant 2012 taking place on Sunday June 12, 2012 was even more special as Mont Tremblant gears up for it’s first full Ironman race slated to take place in mid-August 2012.

It’s an opportunity for race directors and volunteers alike to gain some insight into putting together a successful Ironman event as the resort area gears up for the fast-approaching Ironman Mont Tremblant that takes place August 19, 2012.

THE IRONMAN 70.3 MONT TREMBLANT COURSE

The race will start out with a 1.2-mile one-loop swim in Lake Tremblant.

Stunning Mont-Tremblant Village soon to be home to Canada’s second full distance Ironman.


The bike course by all reports appears to be fast and very scenic with some challenging, hilly sections thrown into the mix. The 56-mile bike course will take the athletes through the surrounding forests and mountains with Montée Ryan representing the more difficult portion of the bike course with a six percent slope.

Once leaving the bike/run transition area there will be a 13.1 mile run awaiting the triathletes. The course will take the runners through Mont Tremblant Village, past Club Intrawest and onto a park bike-path that eventually leads to the Chemin du Village to the finish line at Mont Tremblant Resort.

So who is favored to win the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Mont Tremblant 2012:

It’s Saturday June 23, 2012 just one day until the gun sounds to begin the race and it seems to me that Romain Guillaume will have the lead leaving the bike/run transition and might never be caught. The biggest challenge for top spot on the podium might come from Grant Burwash, but there are also several Canadian pros in the race who are unknown quantities and could well make their presence felt.

The race for top spot among the pro women would seem to be coming down to Jenny Fletcher and Magali Tisseyre. My choice to win here is Migali as she is sure to get a ton of fan support and that could well be the determining factor in Mont Trembant.

At the 65k mark Guillaum still maintains his lead and should be enjoying it out there. At 62.2F under blue skies the temperature is pretty much ideal for racing.

At the 80k mark he is still in the lead and should be reaching the bike/run transition shortly.
