How do I train for the triathlon?

We have created the JUST TRI IT. training program to get you ready for the race. You will have 10 weeks to run or walk 26.2 miles, bike 112 miles and swim 2.4 miles. If you complete the training by December 7 you will receive a prize. Grab a training sheet from the Lakeshore Atrium and get started.

Do I have to participate in both the triathlon and triathlon training program?

No. While we would like for you to participate in both, it is not required. You may participate only in the training or only in the triathlon.

Is the triathlon for me?

If you are 14 years or older, yes! The triathlon is for all ability levels. You may walk, run or push for the run portion, use an arm or leg bike to cycle, and you may use stroke to swim.

Do I have to do all portions of the triathlon?

No. You may form a team and have each person complete a portion of the triathlon.

Do I need to bring my bike for the event?

No. Because this is an indoor triathlon, we will only use stationary leg and arm bikes for the event.
