The TRI 101 Program is a introductory course to the world of Triathlons by helping any beginning participant complete a Sprint Triathlon in 16 weeks. It will be a complete cross-training program developed to help you finish a 400 meter swim, 7 mile bike ride and a 5K (3.1 miles) run. Our goal race is the Huntsville Sprint Triathlon on June 22, 2013.
Can't swim, run, or haven't been on a bike since you were a kid? NO PROBLEM! You'll have motivational coaches that are with you every step of the way to help you learn swimming basics and guide you to run a little further each week. And once you learn to ride a bike, it sticks with you forever! Any bike you currently have will work for this training program. You are also given all the knowledge & experience of local, accomplished Triathletes about proper stretching, running/swimming/biking form, educated speakers from our community to help you understand about preventing injuries, fueling your training and races, etc. Everything you need to finish your goal!
Best of all, you will be among like-minded people, in a non-competitive environment, also striving to complete a Sprint Triathlon. You will see all ages (from 16 and above), both genders, all sizes, and all experience levels among the participants AND coaches! No reason to be intimidated with TRI 101! FINISHING IS WINNING!
You must be able to walk 1 mile, ability to get across 1 length of a pool (25 yards) with no fear of putting your face in the water and have access to a bike several times a week. This is truly a program for beginners!
*Must be at least 16 years of age to register*
