A nine-week programme for people that who would like to complete their first ever triathlon but don't know where to start.
The programme, consisting of one-hour coached sessions every Sunday with triathlon coach Fiona Hoare, will teach you all the skills you need to compete in a triathlon in a fun and relaxed environment. The final session is a beginners triathlon, giving you a chance to put everything you have learnt into practice in a triathlon with manageable distances.
Sessions will take place between 1pm - 2pm at The Edge (Willow Terrace Road, LS2 9JT)(Unless otherwise stated), where there is free parking available.
All you need to participate in this is a swimming costume / shorts and some clothes to run & cycle in. If you have a bike and helmet to use then that is great, but if you don't have one then please let us know on the application form and we will provide them when required.
