  • Comments: This venue and race are top notch. a bit confusing when you first get there, but once you are there and understand how the village is setup it is fabulous. Volunteers were super friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back... next year!

  • Comments: Great race as usual in Mont tremblant. I have been there four time so far, 2 HIM and 2 IM, and it amaze me to see that they seems to get better every damn time :)

  • Comments: First IM but what an amazing venue. Highly recommend Tremblant - course is great- roads are smooth and closed to traffic, volunteers were plentiful. The village itself was great for food - lots of healthy choices. Tons of activities for the kids - mine are already asking when we're going back. An amazing first IM experience.

  • Comments: This was definitely my favorite IM of the 4 I have done (LP, AZ, and KY as the others). While they were all great, the venue, organization, and spirit of IMMT were a cut above. Absolutely top-notch. And if you have kids, I can't imagine there is a better IM venue out there.

  • Comments: Very impressed, well run except for a few flaws, finding registration and the athlete meeting being waaaayyyy too late. I think it didnt start until an hour and change past it's scheduled time.

  • Comments: Wow. First IMMT is just an amazing amazing experience. While it is my only 140.6 to date, it was an extraordinary venue and event. When I picked my first full last year I had read the early rave reports and decided on this over IMLP. I can't exaggerate how much local support the community puts behind this race. The town is all in, as evidenced by 3 WTC events here in 2014. If you've got a family, it's not even a question. People have said it's a hard course, but if you train anywhere near hills like we do in the northeast it's REALLY not that bad (i ran a 34/28). From my perspective, I met my goal of sub 13. I can identify an easy 15-20 minutes I left out there at my current fitness level, but at this point, really, that's not important. I think if I really went after it I could have pulled a 12:20 or so. Before Sunday I was pretty adamant that I wouldn't be doing another one of these until the kids were in college. Now I'm not so sure. I'll focus on sprints and 70.3's in

  • Comments: As disappointed as I was with my overall time and placing, I have to applaud the volunteers, the town, and the whole staff that put the race on. It was a great event and I felt very supported throughout the whole weekend. Even though I didn't get a slot to Kona I was glad to see those who did at roll-down and elation that they showed was almost contagious. Katie and I have decided that IM racing will not be in the cards for the foreseeable future as I want to be with Jackson and Katie on weekends and after work. Maybe one day I'll get one of those Kona slots, but it probably won't be for quite a while. Here's a link to my blog post on those precious 7 seconds: http://262toboylstonstreet.blogspot.com/2013/08/7-seconds.html

  • Comments: Best venue I've ever seen for a race. I've seen it compared to LP, but Mont Tremblant definitely takes the cake. Beautiful course, everything is a very central location and it was expertly organized.

  • Comments: This was a great race! I loved the people, the course and the area where the race was held. It was icing on the cake to be able to compete with Brad, friends and teammates. We walked away with our group all crossing the finish line which is enough to celebrate - add in some PRs and Laura's Kona slot and 2nd place in her age group and it's an understatement to say it was a really great day.

  • Comments: I love Ironman Canada in Penticton (or what once was IM CAN now that they are moving) but I think that Ironman Mont-Tremblant is now my favorite venue. Can't say enough good things about this race. I'm already registered for this race for 2013 and can't wait for round 2.

  • Comments: This was a fantastic race. While watching the finish (after we were done) Mike Reilly said a number of times that he couldn't believe this was the first year of the race. It was the best inaugural year he'd ever seen. There were sooooo many volunteers who were so helpful. The finishing chute was AMAZING and the setting was just beautiful. I highly recommend this race - the course I think is fair - just the right amount of challenge but with the loops you never really feel alone.

  • Comments: I can't say enough about Mont Tremblant and the race. The place is awesome, I asked several people who have done IM's if they are all like this and they all said not even close. This was my first IM so I have nothing to compare it to. The whole community came out to supprt the racers and people were still congratulating me a few days after the race. My wife and kids ran a 1K and 5K race on Thursday, there were a ton of activities for the kids. None of us wanted to leave. It was a bit expensive but we treated it like a vacation. My one regret is that I couldn't make it back down to the finish to see the last racers cross the line. I wouldn't have been able to do any of this without the support of my wife who had to sacrifice a lot so I could get my long rides and runs in on the weekend. Thank You, Allison. An ironman is an awesome experience but one that I will not attempt again until 2014. It is too much every year with two young kids and a wife that also does tris.

  • Comments: Disclosure's: 1. I was very under-trained for this event considering my general expectations for IM. My long run was 13 miles. 2. I was injured from Sept. 2011 until June 2012 with achilles tendinosis. 3. Work has become significantly busier for me with far less free time and sleep available. 4. I travelled 3/7 and worked 2/7 weekends prior to this event which was prime training time. It was what it was. I say these things NOT as excuses, but rather disclosure about what I expected from this race. My race was not going to even happen as of June 2012, but then I started to improve thanks to a good PT friend of mine. I felt that 10:30-10:59 was a rough idea of where I could finish and I was smack in the middle. More importantly I really enjoyed most of the event. The second half of the run hurt more than usual due to lack of long runs, but it was expected and my pace really didn't fade much considering all in all. BTW they have beer and poutine in the finisher area, which

  • Comments: I cant believe I finished. Here's what I learned from this experience. Race execution (pace, fueling, etc) makes a tremendous difference in a race of this length -- I think it was the only thing that got me through. This was IM #5 for me, and I can honestly say it was my best-executed race to date. Strangely, being sick forced me to moderate my effort and focus on fueling. If things aren't working, you need to adapt. My stomach did not accept my original nutrition plan, so I tossed it to the side of the road (literally), and found things on the course that worked.
