Sunlight will strike the mountain peaks and the mist will slowly rise off Lake Tremblant as thousands of runners make their way to the start of one of the most beloved running events in Quebec on August 12—the Demi Marathon Mont Tremblant.
Selected by La Presse+ as one of the top five must-run events in Quebec this summer, the Demi Marathon Mont Tremblant really should be on your bucket list – and it’s not too late to register, as we’ve just opened up a few hundred spots for last minute planners. (Editor’s note: August 12 is this weekend!)
With a picture perfect postcard setting, the half marathon course is absolutely breathtaking—and not just because of the hills! You’ll start at the top of the fabled Mont Tremblant resort and run a course that winds for kilometers under a canopy of trees on the multi-functional trail, alongside the roaring Diable River—up, down and around some amazing hills, at the edge of Lake Ouimet, and off to a finish in the centre of town at City Hall.
And while the 21.1 km half marathon is certainly the most popular of the four distances offered on race day, the 10 km, 5 km and 1 km Kids Fun Run ensures a distance for all runners, from the beginner to the elite.
Our tremendous local coaches lead a warm up for the runners at each distance. Seasoned Skechers Performance pace bunnies will keep you on track to meet or exceed your race day expectations. Over four hundred volunteers will make sure that your every need is met. The Demi Marathon Mont Tremblant is a community event, and we take pride in hosting an amazing race. No detail is left to chance.
Every finisher gets a champion’s welcome at the finish line. After you receive your fabulous finisher medal, enjoy a terrific athlete’s lunch, a cold beer and full-on post-race celebration all afternoon: a medal ceremony, music, inflatable games for the kids, and over three dozen exhibitors to visit. It’s an amazing package and a race day you will not soon forget.
The Demi Marathon Mont Tremblant is fun, is festive and there is a distance for everyone in the family. And, we are going to give you 10% off from now to race day with promo code Tremblantdemi1018.
