TRIATHLON VALLEYFIELD RETURNS: 7th EDITION OF THE BEAUHARNOIS-SALABERRY SCHOOL TRIATHLON
The Triathlon Valleyfield organization will welcome around 1,000 students on June 16 at the Îles-de-Saint-Timothée Regional Park for the 7th edition of the School Triathlon.
Fourth grade students from 34 schools of the Centre de services scolaire de la Vallée-des-Tisserands and the New Frontiers School Board will be able to learn the different stages of a triathlon. Therefore, for the swimming, biking, and running stages, they will have access to the natural basin of the St. Lawrence River and the bike path that runs along the beach.
The objective of this School Triathlon is to implement actions aimed at the acquisition and preservation of healthy eating and living habits as well as a physically active lifestyle among the youth. The activity takes place on a participatory basis. No time is recorded.
“We believe that by introducing young people to triathlon, we open the doors to a healthy lifestyle. The values conveyed in this event are participation and respect for oneself and others.” – Brigitte Asselin, president of Triathlon Valleyfield and the School Triathlon.
