Learn to be a triathlete and compete!
Beginner to Triathlete Course.
Looking for a new challenge in 2019, then our Novice Triathlon course is a brilliant way of getting fit and much better value than a gym! Run by Thames Turbo Triathlon Club based in Hampton this 5 week course culminates in your first triathlon. Whether you are an absolute novice competing to complete or you have bigger goals, our coaches will give you the skills and confidence to enjoy your first triathlon event.
The triathlon you will participate in is our own Thames Turbo Sprint Triathlon. It was awarded the best London Triathlon in 2017 and is very popular with beginners; there are always a large group of 1st time athletes. The Triathlon has a 426m swim in the Hampton open air Pool, a 21.5k flat bike ride and 5k run through BusHy Park. Start times are also staggered so you will be competing with people of a similar ability. The cost of the course which includes 5 weeks of training, race entry fee and insurance is £110.
There will be two courses in 2019:
Course 1 starts on the 19th of March 2019 with your triathlon on the 6th of May
Course 2 starts on the 9th of July 2018 with your triathlon on the 26thof August.
A typical week will consist of the following:
The course will include introductions to the triathlon basics, two swim sessions a week, a track session most weeks as well as bike sessions, covering nutrition, kit, race pacing and much much more useful info and coaching!
It’s a bargain at £110, including the £50 entry fee. You will also get an insight into training with a well established club, in case that is something of interest to you.
