Here is some of what you can expect
Practice Triathlons- Triathlon is fairly unique in its combination of multiple sports into one event. The key to success is being able to put them all together; the best way to get comfortable with it is practice. We have weekly informal practice triathlons in the summer that will help get you ready. You can practice with others in a low key environment and without funny looks from your neighbors when you hose yourself down in the front yard and then jump on your bike!
Special Information Sessions- Topics include:
- Training plan review
- Race Day plan
- Setting up your transition area
- Hydration & Nutrition
- Racing/pacing strategy
- Tips on tools and gear and gear selection / gear checkup
Forum and Email Contact for questions- You're bound to think of questions as you prepare for your first race. We'll be there so that you have someone to ask.
Pre Race Support- We will be on site at several local races to help you get checked in and set up your gear and cheer you on.
