More than 200 athletes gathered at the 18th edition of the Valleyfield Triathlon
It was in an atmosphere radiating passion and fun that Triathlon Valleyfield welcomed more than 200 participants for its 18th edition on August 15, in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield. The event allowed more than 150 triathletes and 50 duathletes to experience an exceptional day on the site of Triathlon Quebec’s 12-hour challenge.
The two competitions presented in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield were the Duathlon Sprint provincial championship won by Jacob Saunders (Shelburne, Ontario) and the Triathlon Sprint won by Patrice Bégin (South Shore).

The Producteurs de lait du Québec commanded the effort of the participants as volunteers at the finish line gave the athletes a bottle of chocolate milk. “After such intense physical activity, it is crucial to recuperate well, explained a spokesperson for the Famille du lait. With the nutrients in chocolate milk, the athletes of the Triathlon de Valleyfield could recuperate while hydrating in a more efficient way than with a protein-free sports drink.”
Thank you to the volunteers and loyal partners
The Triathlon Valleyfield organization would like to acknowledge the involvement of more than 100 volunteers who contributed to the success of this extraordinary sporting event. Despite the health measures in effect and the restrictions in place to hold an event, the volunteers made the triathlon a must-attend event.
The event could not take place without the collaboration of its partners. These partners include the City of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, the Caisse Desjardins de Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, the office of MNA Claude Reid, Lait au chocolat, Triathlon Quebec, Zel agence de communication, the firm of chartered professional accountants Séguin Haché and HelpOX.
