PACE Multisport putting on clinic for both youth and adults

For those aspiring to take on a triathlon of any distance this year, there is good news. PACE Multisport, a new multisport coaching business in the Comox Valley, is launching an Adult and Youth Triathlon Clinic starting Tuesday, March 17 at the Sports Centre. It will be an eight-week clinic providing the participants with swim, bike and run coaching, transition and nutrition tips and a basic training plan.

“You don’t have to have any background in triathlon or the three events of swim, bike or run in order to participate in the clinic,” says Leanne Gray, one of the two nationally certified coaches partnering to form PACE Multisport.

The team of coaches will help everyone train and prepare for a triathlon regardless of experience or age. With the sport of triathlon growing, there are more and more events of various distances to try out on the Island.

“It really is a sport for everyone, youth, adults of all ages can get into it for the first time,” commented Lynda Magor, Gray’s partner in this new business venture.  The pair of coaches have raced at all distances of triathlon and between them have 20 years of experience in the sport. Magor has represented Canada at numerous world triathlon championships.

“We are passionate about triathlon and sharing our experiences with others to help them on their way to enjoying this great lifestyle sport,” said Gray.

PACE Multisport will be holding another Learn to Swim Clinic soon due to popular demand after their first clinic in January and February was a success. Weekly Wednesday night indoor bike trainer workouts are also available at the PACE PIT, located in the back of the Dynamic Spine, Sport and Wellness Clinic on Cliffe Avenue.

Anyone wanting to get a high intensity bike workout using their own bike and wind trainer is welcome to drop in Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 p.m. for $10.

To find out more about PACE Multisport, check out their Facebook page. They can be contacted by emailing pacemultisport@gmail.com or call 250-792-5330 or 250-702-7531.
