KINDS OF SPORTS. Scheduled for July 10 and 11, March 26.e The release of Trimemphré has been postponed to August 21 and 22 due to uncertainty caused by the health crisis caused by COVID-19.
Last year’s scenario is being repeated. Last year’s events, which took place on September 5th rather than July, were attended by 500 triathletes. This number of participants was far from the usual 2000 at the start.
The organizers hoped to resume their July slot. Options, vaccination rates and sanitary measures still in place forced them to postpone the event by six weeks.
“We cross our fingers because we are dependent on the constraints and decisions of public health,” says Trimemphré CEO René Pomerlo. 26e the publication could be compromised if we escape on August 21 and 22. “
Uncertainty also reigns with a very busy schedule in the coming weeks. Mr. Pomerloh cites the start of the school year, the Magog-Orford Harvest Festival and the Montreal Marathon as examples. In addition, the weather conditions are very uncertain in September.
In August, Mr. Pomerlo still hopes to bring together 2,000 triathletes, split into four separate groups and over four half days. “Individual trips and our large transition zone allow us to maintain a two-meter distance,” he assures us.
