Triathlon Training Days


 Merchant Taylors’, Northwood, HA6 2HT

13th May 2018

Free to anyone registered for a 2018 Hercules Event!

We will be hosting a triathlon training day on Sunday 13th May 2018 at Merchant Taylors’ School. Places are limited and you will need to have already booked on a 2018 Hercules Event in order to attend this free training day.

The day will be a great opportunity for those who are taking on their first event to gain invaluable tips and advice and also for experienced triathletes who want to refresh their knowledge this season.

We will start the day with a classroom session with our Hercules Coach who will take you through all things triathlon. You will then have the amazing opportunity to ask our Race Director any questions that you may have about the upcoming Hercules Festival of Sport – Northwood. After the Q&A we will head to the lake for an open water group swim coaching session so bring your wetsuit! After we are out of the water there will be no time to get dry as we will dive straight into transition training where you will learn all that you need to know about transitioning between the disciplines along with some insider tips to set you ahead of your competitors on race day.

This really is a great opportunity to hone your triathlon skills and we guarantee it will help to put your nerves at ease on race day. You will meet other like minded triathletes and enjoy a day of learning in a relaxed, fun environment.

Hurry…spaces are limited!
