How to Finish your First Triathlon with a Smile on your Face

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 – including the Sky Tri presented by Liberty Athletic Club. In this clinic you will gain the background, tools, and motivation to give it a tri. You will spend some time on dry land and some time in the pool. There will be a session with information about Paratriathlon with special pool instruction.  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.


Snacks, gifts, and a drawing for a Polar Loop for all participants!

Event Schedule
