All training program Kick-Offs are subject to change. Here's to staying positive and hoping we have some great training this summer!
TRI 101 is a beginner's triathlete program! This 10 week program is geared towards the new triathlete covering swim technique, cycling safety and gearing, run technique, transition, nutrition, injury prevention, stretching and more. It will be a complete training program developed by experienced and certified coaches to guide you to the goal of a sprint distance triathlon (400 meter pool swim, 7 mile bike, 3.1 mile run). Our goal race is the Huntsville Sprint Triathlon on August 8, 2020. Best of all, this is a welcoming environment, where all paces, ages (16 and above), sizes and experience levels are welcome! YES YOU CAN!
