1250 kilometers by bike, on foot and by rowing, this is the challenge that Annabelle Guay has taken on in the name of body diversity. The adventurer has just completed the second part of the adventure.

After “many unforeseen events” on the bike, the athlete finally reached Mont-Albert in Gaspésie, where she then walked 250 kilometers to the top of the Parc Forillon, ending the second part of her journey.

She says she faced loneliness on her journey.

“It’s a challenge to be with yourself 24 hours a day,” she said in an interview with LCN.

The walk was the hardest part for this outdoor enthusiast.

“I’m used to day hikes with my big pack, but 20+ days with an extra 40 pounds was quite a challenge.”

Heat and smoke were two other big challenges for Annabelle.

She will soon complete the third and final stage of the triathlon, namely 250 kilometers of rowing to the Îles-de-la-Madeleine.

“A bit of stress has been added because the winds have not been favorable for me in recent weeks and I will therefore not be able to leave as planned in the next few days,” she said.
