No more Ironman 140.6 Mont-Tremblant: full focus on 70.3

Following several discussions, the decision was taking to discontinue Ironman Mont-Tremblant. As of 2024, local event organiser Événements Sportifs Mont-Tremblant and Ironman have mutually agreed that the focus will stay trained on the IM 70.3 Mont-Tremblant triathlon weekend of races, which also includes the 5150 Mont Tremblant.

Following several discussions which began last spring, the decision was taken by mutual agreement that the full-distance triathlon will therefore be discontinued after its 2023 edition.

This latest move follows similar developments in the UK, where Ironman UK in Bolton, north west England, will become Ironman 70.3 Bolton in 2024. Meanwhile, elsewhere in key markets such as the USA, a contraction in full distance racing options has increasingly become the norm.

‘’We value the strong relationship with The Ironman Group and although this was not an easy decision, it was taken in the best interest of both organization, and the Mont-Tremblant region,” said Marc Monchamp, Executive Producer at Événements Sportifs Mont-Tremblant.

“The Ironman events rapidly established themselves as flagship events in the region, with the entire community mobilizing to host them. The region and its welcoming infrastructure are extremely busy during peak periods, and to adequately serve the 5,000+ triathletes in attendance and those who accompany them, we have decided by mutual agreement to prioritize events that take place during the month of June.”
