Event Navigation


Join the growing ranks of triathletes from the age of 7 to 70+. Even if you have never swum in a lake, ridden a bike more than a few miles, or even run a mile, you can train to complete a triathlon this summer. In this clinic you will gain the background, tools, and motivation to give it a tri.   Participants will receive a 12-week sprint triathlon training plan.

How do I train?  What kind of bike should I ride?  What should I wear?  Can I wear fins?  Do I need a wetsuit? Can I wear a life jacket?  Where can I buy triathlon clothes?  Is it ok to ride a mountain bike?  How will I know where to go?  Where do I change after the swim?  I’m really slow, is that ok?  Can I wait for my friend after I get out of the water?  How do I swim faster?  How can I get faster transitions?  What if I get a flat? I swim fine in the pool, but I’m nervous about open water.  What should I eat?  I’ve done lots of triathlons, but I just can’t seem to get any faster.   All of these questions plus more will be addressed at the Epic Tri Clinic.

If you’re ready to get to work on your swim strokes, consider also registering for the Epic Triathlon Swim Clinic! Have your technique analyzed by renowned swim and triathlon coach Daniel Smith. Learn drills and create muscle memory that will improve your performance. Register for both clinics and pay only $100!

    To Whom This May Concern,

    I ‘m thinking of trying a mini triathlon at the young age of 66. I do run and have completed a 1/2 marathon. I want to join theeEpic Newbe clinic, but will be gone for the month of February. Is there a clinic that starts in March? Thank you for your time.

      Hi Mary!
      Congratulations on making the decision to do a triathlon! At the 2014 Tri Goddess Triathlon we have over 60 First Timers over Fifty so you will be in good company. (Yes, many of them were over 60.) As of now, we do not have a plan for a clinic in March, but we do have a 15 week clinic in partership with Performance Bike beginning in January. It will be fine to miss the February sessions, you’ll get plenty out of the others. You can find info here: https://epicraces.com/event/couch-to-tri/ Let us know if we can answer any more questions for you. Feel free to email me directly at eva@epicraces.com.

    Hi! Want to sign up, but have kids that need to get to pm swim meet and basketball tourneys that day. Is this a 1 or 2 hour clinic? Just trying to plan around their schedules to get some “me time!”

      The “Newbie Tri Clinic” will be from 9 – 11 and the “Swim Clinic” will be from 11 – 1. Those participating in both clinics will stay in the water at the end of the Newbie Tri Clinic. The swim portion of the 11 – 1 clinic will be from 11 – 12ish and then everybody will observe the films together. Let me know if I can help with anything else.

        Thanks Eva! Few more brief questions… What will we need to bring to the newbie clinic? Is it mainly talking and info? Would we be in the pool and need suit/goggles? Thanks in advance!

          The first hour will be a powerpoint presentation. The second hour will be in the pool and you will need a suit and goggles. We will supply swim caps. Let me know if I can help with anything else.
