Montreal welcomes two more major triathlon events

After hosting the only North American stage of the World Triathlon Championship Series last weekend in Montreal, event organiser Productions Podium is welcoming two more major triathlon events in the city. On July 8, the World Triathlon Para Series Montreal and Americas Triathlon Cup Montreal are both scheduled to take place.

The World Triathlon Championship Series in Montreal on June 24-25 saw age group and elite racing across the weekend, although the Mixed Relay event was forced to cancel due to air quality issues from wildfires in the Quebec region.

The organising team are hoping that air quality will improve and is inviting the public to attend for free at Parc Jean-Drapeau, the third largest park in the city.

“Last weekend was exhilarating, with hundreds of athletes performing, including Quebec’s Charles Paquet, who took 7th place in the sprint event,” said Patrice Brunet, event founder and Chairman at Productions Podium.

“It was also challenging given the poor air quality due to forest fires across Quebec, which forced us to cancel our race on Sunday. One thing’s for sure, our passion for triathlon and events, and our team’s determination, have led us to once again bring together the two great families of triathlon and para triathlon in Montreal.

“We are proud to continue our commitment to the global triathlon community by offering Montreal as a playground for both the elite and up-and-coming athletes.”

Founded in 2016, Productions Podium organizes and produces local, national and international sports and cultural events. This year, it will be presenting the Groupe Copley World Triathlon, World Triathlon Para Series, PATCO Cup, 3×3 Québec Challenger, DISTRIX Festival, Triathlon de Verdun, On court Montréal as well as the brand-new Arena Games Triathlon Montréal, DISTRIX Breaking and SMASH Festival.

With these projects and unique Québec events in its portfolio, Productions Podium has become a prominent figure on the event landscape in Montréal and Québec.
