GRAEME MAGOR WAS the overall winner of last year's Shoreline Orthodontics Tri-K.

Free triathlon clinic offered

Will help participants prepare for May 26 Shoreline Orthodontics Tri-K

You don’t get much for free these days.

However, the Comox Valley Triathlon Club is offering a free triathlon workshop for adult members and non-members alike.

The workshop is timed to assist those taking part in the local Shoreline Orthodontics Tri-K race (May 26) and is designed for athletes who are new to or inexperienced in the sport of triathlon. The workshop will cover various aspects of the race but will focus on transition skills.

The workshop is being run by Lynda Magor, a member of CV Tri Club, who is a triathlete and certified triathlon coach. For the last two years, Magor has run a six-week clinic preparing youths up to the age of 17 years to take part in the SO Tri-K.

“I had a lot of interest from parents at my youth clinic and other adults who were keen to get some useful information and tips on taking part in the Tri-K,” commented Magor. “Although the timing is designed for the Tri-K, the workshop will equally be of great help for any other triathlon.”

The workshop takes place between 6 and 8 p.m. on Monday, May 20 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre on Vanier Drive in Courtenay. Numbers have to be restricted so there are a limited number of spaces available. Therefore it is recommended you reserve your space ASAP.

Lynda’s husband, Graeme Magor, took part in last year’s SO Tri-K and was the overall winner, as well as winning the Sprint Male 50-59 age category. Clearly, the Magors have a great deal of experience within triathlon and are eager to share it with you.

Two other CV Tri Club members finished first in their age categories last year: Robert Lundine in the Sprint Male 60-69 age category and Bonny Irvin in the Sprint Female 60-69 age category.

To book your space in the workshop, e-mail Lynda Magor at magors@shaw.ca.
