Download a brochure/registration form here: Indoor Tri 2019
Take the challenge! The Winter Indoor Triathlon is right around the corner, so now is the time to get ready. You’ll swim, bike and run/walk in the comfort of the indoors – at your pace.
The race is conduced in waves of five people, starting in the pool. You can swim or walk laps while a volunteer on-deck counts your laps. Use of a kickboard or aqua belt is optional. Then you’ll change in the locker (you have about 15 minutes) and head down to the group cycling studio where you’ll cycle for 20 minutes. Finally you will head to the track or a treadmill and run/walk for 20 minutes.
Top finishers are decided by a percentage conversion of the total number of laps and miles per competitor. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers in the men’s and women’s categories. Cost is only $30 per person and each participant will receive a t-shirt and a participation medal. Snacks will be provided.
