The Pentathlon des neiges team is more than happy to announce the 18th edition of the event, which will take place from Saturday, February 26 to Sunday, March 13, 2022, on the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City.
“After experiencing a roller coaster ride of emotions due to the uncertainties that have marked the last few months regarding sports gatherings, we are delighted to have the green light and to be able to move forward. Our team has worked hard and has been very creative and flexible in adjusting to the sanitary measures required by public health. While ensuring the safety of all our participants, our main objective is to offer a high caliber, diversified and fun program, to better reconnect with the pleasure of practicing winter sports, either competitively or simply for leisure. It’s in the Pentathlon’s DNA and we’re already looking forward to welcoming you to this not-to-be-missed winter sports event,” says Francois Calletta, General Manager of the Pentathlon Group.
In total, the Pentathlon des neiges will present 20 different sporting challenges and will extend over an additional week, called the Semaine de la découverte et de la nordicité, which has been added to the calendar, that is to say the school break. During these 16 days of activities, the Pentathlon des neiges will offer a wide range of sporting challenges during which families, friends, colleagues, students, children, adults of all ages as well as amateur and elite athletes will try to push their limits, while having fun and enjoying the Quebec winter to the fullest.
The registration period continues
The public is invited to register for the various Pentathlon des neiges challenges until February 14. A good way to enjoy the winter and to thumb your nose at the pandemic!
Health measures and new procedures
In order to ensure the safety of all participants, the Pentathlon Group is currently working with all of its partners to put in place adequate sanitary measures. A participant’s guide will also be sent to each registrant to communicate the new procedures on site. A maximum of 1,000 people will be admitted to the site – including participants, volunteers, employees, etc. – and all will be required to show their vaccination passport.
