Monday Evenings: Tri 101 with Coach Casey Fannin. Meet the group at Oak Mtn. State Park for swimming, biking and running. Great for beginners! 5:30 p.m. at the beach parking lot.
Tuesday Mornings: Join Coaches Sarah Portella & Craig Cecil for a run workout at Vulcan Trail, 5:30 a.m. The run will include a warm up and run drills focusing on form, followed by a speed workout and cool down.
Tuesday Afternoons: The Vulcan Tri Ride. We leave promptly at 5:30 p.m. from the BB&T parking lot (below Mtn. Brook Y). We will have a no drop ride as well so everyone is welcome!
June 11: Buster Britton Sprint Tri
June 26: Chattanooga Waterfront Oly Tri
Mark your calendars for Sunday, May 1, 2016! The practice race will be held at Oak Mountain State Park (admission is $5.00 per person) starting from the beach parking lot. Every year this is a lot of fun and it greatly helps to work out all the kinks before the first race of the season! This year we will be having a guest speaker that will lead a group chat before the practice tri begins, so try to arrive early!
Practice Tri start time is promptly at 8 a.m.
