Registration for our summer 2023 program is closed
Are you ready to TRI something new? We think running is great but adding swimming and biking into your routine can be a fun change of pace and a great way to cross train in order to prevent injury. Whether you are brand new to triathlon or have already completed one this program is for you! Let our exceptional coaching staff, educational clinics, and training plan help you meet your goals.
Our Fleet Feet Women’s Triathlon Program is a 10 week beginner training program structured to help you cross the finish line of your first sprint triathlon or help beginner triathletes meet a new performance goal. We believe it is important to train with a goal in mind, usually (but not always) that goal is a race. For this program our graduation race will be The Sage City Triathlon on Saturday, August 12 at 8:00 am. However, you can also use this program to train for any race you choose or just to swim, bike and run with great people.
There will be an optional program informational session on Thursday, June 1 at 7:15 pm at the store. Come find out if this is the right program for you. Our program kick-off and first run workout will be Thursday, June 8 at 6:30 pm at the store.
When: Most group workouts will be at 6:00 pm on Thursdays from June 8 – August 10. We will also meet on Wednesday 6/14, 6/21, 7/19 and we will occasionally shift our meeting time to 5:30 or 6:30 depending on the activity, clinic or location. Participants will receive a program schedule that highlights when and where the group will meet each week as well as weekly email reminders. We will complete a practice triathlon prior to race day on Saturday, July 29.
Where: The group will meet at Fleet Feet Bloomington, Normal Community High School Pool, Rosa Parks Commons, Bloomington Cycle & Fitness and other locations around town.
Program Cost: $75 per participant. There is a registration limit of 30 participants. This year our program participants will receive a $5 discount to the Sage City Triathlon (race entry not included with program cost).
Important notes: This program is meant to be a "next-step" after completing one of our running programs. This program assumes participants can comfortably complete a two mile run/walk at a 15 minute/mile pace. We will not focus on running skills but rather on improving your swimming, biking and overall endurance to be able to put all three sports together on race day. We do not have official "mentors" like our running groups - but veteran participants informally mentor the group through shared experiences. We do not provide swim lessons but work with a local swim coach to help improve your technique, efficiency and endurance.
