A TRIATHLON CONSISTS of swimming

Did you know the Comox Valley has a triathlon club?  Do you want to “Try-a-Tri?” Not a triathlete? No matter! If you have limited knowledge of multi-sport events, but are keen on learning what the entire swim-bike-run buzz is all about, the Comox Valley Triathlon Club wants to help you.

This year, the Comox Valley Triathlon Club members are excited to announce, our first annual ‘Adult 8-week Triathlon Clinic’ program leading up to the 32nd annual Shoreline Orthodontics Tri-K Triathlon on May 25.

The clinic will be designed to suit adults of all ages who have never participated in a triathlon before and for those that have done one, but maybe want to learn a little more about the amazing multi-sport.

Adult participants will gain extensive knowledge for practical training and race day tips to complete a Sprint distance triathlon (500m swim, 20km bike, 5km run).

Along with the adult clinic, the triathlon club is excited to once again offer their annual ‘Youth Triathlon Clinic’ program in April and May leading up to the Shoreline Orthodontics Tri-K.

“Our clinics will provide an opportunity for both young and old who are interested in attempting triathlon as a sport, but are just not sure of the equipment that is needed and what they need to do to train for a multi-sport event.” states coach Lynda Magor who has coached the youth triathlon clinics the past two years.

Magor states, “I held a two-hour crash course clinic last year for adults that were tackling the Tri-K for the first time.  The response was overwhelming!

“There are a lot of adults in our Valley that are really keen to learn more about triathlon and participate in our local race that has been running for the last 31 years.

“To have an event like the Shoreline Orthodontics Tri-K in our community is such an amazing opportunity for everyone to participate in the sport of Triathlon.”

This weekend, Saturday Jan. 11-12, the Comox Valley Triathlon Club will hold registration sessions for current club members to register for their 2014 triathlon season.

If you are intrigued by the swim-bike-run sport and are curious about what our club has to offer, club coaches and members of the executive will be set up on Saturday, at the Vanier Sport Centre lobby from 9-10:30 a.m. and again on Sunday, at the Comox Rec Centre from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  Come out and meet some club members and register for a healthy and fun opportunity in your community!
