Swim, bike and run with friends! Training for a Triathlon is as much fun as doing the actual race! All levels encouraged to participate. For those who are new to the sport, train with coaches who will show you how to cross the finish line and have fun doing it!
We will start our swimming base in the pool for 5 weeks in two different locations and times. All open water swims will start Mondays in June and will take place from 6:00 – 7:00 pm at Crystal Lake in Gray or in the ocean at SMCC at the Tri for a CURE race start! Bring your wetsuit, goggles, and cap! Learning to open water swim is much different than lap swimming in a pool.
Bike training will be filled with information including: bike maintenance, riding form, bike fit and of course include our group rides…. We can ride the actual race courses or go on a long ride through Portland and its surrounding towns!
Run night we will join the women’s run group! The group will be split up by level of ability. There will be a walk/run group and a run group. Each will be given a specific task to be done for the hour. One night might be running hills, another night maybe track work. Watch your run times get faster!
All athletes will get a monthly workout plan to follow for other training days!
Our on staff nutritionist Karen Knapton will give eating for optimal performance tips during the training program. She will be available to answer your nutrition questions during your time with us!
