Adult and youth (ages 10 and up) in the Comox Valley will have the opportunity to prepare for the 32nd annual Shoreline Orthodontics Tri-K Triathlon through an eight-week clinic supported by the Comox Valley Triathlon Club.

The Adult Clinic is new this year and offers triathlon “newbies” and  experienced triathletes an opportunity to learn training techniques in all three disciplines while getting support for their training in a friendly group atmosphere. The adult sessions will run Sundays from 8:30-10:30 a.m. starting March 30 and meeting at the Aquatic Centre on Lerwick Rd.  NCCP Certified Coach Leanne Gray can be contacted at gray.coaching@yahoo.com for further details.

The Youth Triathlon Clinic will run on Tuesdays from 4-6 p.m. starting April 1 and meeting at the Comox Valley Sports Centre for training sessions in all three disciplines of swimming, biking, and running.  In each training session, young athletes will gain numerous training and racing tips for each of the three disciplines in their preparation to complete the Tri-K on May 25.

Coaches Lynda Magor, an NCCP Competition Certified Triathlon Coach and long time triathlete, along with local Ironman triathlete Audrey Erlandson, also an NCCP Community Certified Triathlon Coach, will ensure all aspects of triathlon preparation are covered in a super fun and safe environment.

“The Comox Valley Tri-K has to be one of the best youth supported triathlon races in B.C.,” commented Magor. “The venue is perfect for kids of all ages to participate as a team or as an individual in several age appropriate distances. The Tri-K is also the first Vancouver Island triathlon race that Simon Whitfield competed in as a young triathlon star on his journey to winning his Olympic gold medal.

“Our clinic will provide an opportunity for youth who are interested in attempting triathlon as a sport, but are just not sure of what they need to do to train and where to start,” stated Erlandson.

For Youth Triathlon Clinic registration and clinic details contact  Magor by e-mail at magors@shaw.ca or by phone 250-941-3579.
