THE LOCAL TRIATHLON club is gearing up for a new season and invites new members to join them.

Comox Valley Triathlon Club (CVTriClub) is holding a membership sign-up event at the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds on Saturday, March 12. The social event is being held to enable old and new members to sign up for the forthcoming season.

An optional fun duathlon will form part of the event, which will consist of a 3K run, 10K bike and 3K run. It will be held on part of the local Tri-K course and therefore provides an opportunity for participants to practise for the Tri-K.

The event will start at 9 a.m. with membership sign-up followed by the fun duathlon at 10 a.m. The duathlon is entirely optional and there will be food and refreshments available throughout, with everyone being encouraged to meet and socialize with other members.

CVTriClub is entering its third year and has members of all standards and abilities and welcomes everyone regardless of experience. There is a strong emphasis on inclusiveness, providing members with the ability to train with other triathletes of a similar standard.

The club offers a variety of activities designed to assist members with their training needs and, for those who wish to compete, improve their performance. Currently, during the off-season, indoor group bike trainer sessions are taking place at Comox Valley Sports Centre and Spin sessions at Fitness Excellence. Starting in April, planned activities include group rides (Saturday and Sunday), group runs, open-water ocean swims and brick workouts, together with educational and instructional talks. CV Tri Club has five trained coaches, which enables the training sessions to be TriBC sanctioned.

The membership fee to join CV Tri Club is only $20. Members also have to belong to TriBC, for insurance purposes, at an additional cost of $35. For those joining CV Tri Club at the event, TriBC registration will be carried out on your behalf. Memberships taken out after that date will require individuals to do their own TriBC registration.

The club also welcomes juniors (under 19 years) and offers a reduced membership fee of $10, with the junior TriBC membership costing only $10.

To obtain a copy of CV Tri Club and TriBC membership application forms, to obtain further details about the event and fun duathlon or CV Tri Club, e-mail graham53@telus.net.
