  • CYCLIDE becomes the Official Online Training Partner of the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend

    Montréal December 17, 2013 – CYCLIDE and the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend have entered a partnership agreement that makes the CYCLIDE training platform the official online training program of the event.

    CYCLIDE is very pleased to partner with the largest running event in Canada with nearly 45,000 participants last year. The Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend will also celebrate its 40th edition in 2014.

    The CYCLIDE training platform (www.cyclide.org) generates customized training plans for runners online, thus enabling them to follow their training and progress on a daily basis.

    CYCLIDE training programs are adapted to runners of all levels and for all types of goals: whether to complete your first race as a beginner or to improve your running performance in the case of a more seasoned runner.

    A VIRTUAL TRAINER TO GUIDE YOU
    Because of daily constraints, runners do not always manage to perfectly follow their training plans. The VIRTUAL TRAINER accompanies you while you train and adjusts your training plan according to how you feel. Your training plan will therefore always be optimally adjusted and adapted to your physical fitness level.

    6% IMPROVEMENT ON AVERAGE
    No two runners share the same profile in terms of aerobic capacity, endurance, trainability or starting level. Runners therefore need individualized training paces adapted to their individual profiles. That is the innovative idea behind the Cyclide platform,” points out Daniel Mercier, CYCLIDE’s president and designer. Taking into account many parameters, Cyclide training plans deliver an average improvement of 6%.

    Cyclide’s application is easy to access using a simple and user-friendly web-based platform.
