La Capitale will swim, ride and run with Triathlon Duchesnay

April 6, 2017 – La Capitale Insurance and Financial Group and the VIVA workplace health and wellness program invites all sports enthusiasts, young and old, to take on the Triathlon Duchesnay challenge this summer!

This event has quickly become popular since it is very well organized. Also the public is enamoured with this sport that is more accessible than it appears at first glance. The Triathlon Duchesnay is unique in that it offers various participation components for all ages, from newbies to experienced enthusiasts. The Découverte Entreprise component allows teams of colleagues to discover this popular sport in a safe and friendly environment. The Découverte familial and youth components are an opportunity for families to try out a triathalon.

“Our VIVA workplace health and wellness program is based on adopting and maintaining healthy lifestyle habits. The support of one’s peers in the process of making these changes is essential. The opportunity to participate in this triathlon as a family or with colleagues is the reason we decided to support it. It’s motivating to train with one’s children or colleagues!” said Annie Giguère, Director of Product Development and Marketing at La Capitale.

The Triathlon Duchesnay will take place August 26 at the new location of Sainte-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier. The Découverte Entreprise and Découverte Familial components are made up of teams whose members relay each other to cover the 375 metres of swimming, 10k of cycling and 2.5k of running.
