Following on from the success of our previous 3 years courses run in 2014,2015 & 2016, Tewkesbury Triathlon Club are running another 10 week beginner course in Triathlon for 2017. The course consists of three coached training sessions per week covering swim, bike and run skills specifically for triathlon with the goal of completing your first Sprint Distance Triathlon in May. As a course member you will get a discounted entry fee into the May Sprint Triathlon race held by the club.
The Sprint Triathlon race will be held on the 7th May. This race is the clubs own May Sprint race and will be open to 200 other competitors as well, however you will be given priority VIP treatment with your own transiton area and will be going off first before all the other competitors to enable you to have the best possible chance at having a great race. The race consists of a 400m pool swim, 24k bike and a 5k run. When you cross the line you will be given your eclusive Try A Tri Finisher "I am a Triathlete" T shirt.
The course will run over a 10 week period and will consist of the following weekly coached sessions:

The cost of the 10 week course is £50 per person and if you want the discounted entry fee to the May Sprint Triathlon 2017 an additional £25 is added (the normal entry fee for the sprint tri is £45, so a massive saving)
The course fee also covers entry to the swimming pool and all the coached training sessions.
