The 1st Ladies Pink triathlon for the season is nearly here, with a variety of distances to choose from.
These are great events for ladies and girls to do their 1st triathlon, which includes a pool swim rather than open water and is in a controlled environment with no traffic.
The events are for women and girls only and have a great fun atmosphere.
The shortest event includes a 100m swim, 3km bike and a 1km run, the longest 600m swim, 18km bike and a 6km run.
Basically anyone can compete and finish a triathlon with some training and a sense of adventure! Or get a group of friends and enter as a team.
Join a Triathlon Training squad and train with like-minded people, or a swim squad to get some swimming in and some tips on your swim technique. If you are newer to swimming enrol in a freestyle stroke correction clinic to improve your swimming and to swim more efficiently.
Training with a group whether it be at an indoor Power Cycle studio which is time efficient and safe or at a Running session always helps you to train. Also, technical feedback and support from a Triathlon coach, whether it be face to face or online (via videos of your technique) will help you become a more efficient athlete and make training and racing easier, reduce the risk of injury and you will enjoy it more!
