Snowshoers, runners, cross-country skiers, cyclists and skaters met at Collège Mérici to register for the 2019 Pentathlon des Neiges and do some practice runs on the Plains of Abraham.

To the great pleasure of many sports enthusiasts, winter has arrived. Trails are being groomed all over Quebec City. Amateur and elite athletes are strapping on their snowshoes or skis, or lacing up their skates. Many are preparing for a popular, multi-sport event – the annual Pentathlon des Neiges, which will take place on the Plains of Abraham in less than a month.
