Whitmore Lake Community Pool & Epic Races present:

Triathlon 101: Epic Swim Skills & How to finish your First Triathlon with a Smile on your Face!

Date: March 10, 2024
Time: 3pm
7430 Whitmore Lake Road
Whitmore Lake, MI US 48189


In the first hour, USAT Level 2 Race Director and triathlon coach, Eva Solomon will present all you need to know to train for and complete your first triathlon. 


Join the growing ranks of triathletes from the age of 7 to 70+. Even if you have never swam in a lake, ridden a bike more than a few miles, or even run a mile, you can train to complete a triathlon this summer! Topics covered will include: How do I train? What kind of bike should I ride? What should I wear? Can I wear fins? Do I need a wetsuit? Can I wear a life jacket? Where can I buy triathlon clothes? Is it ok to ride a mountain bike? How will I know where to go? Where do I change after the swim? I’m slow, is that ok? Can I wait for my friend after I get out of the water? How do I swim faster? How can I get faster transitions? What if I get a flat? I swim fine in the pool, but I’m nervous about open water. What should I eat? These questions and more will be addressed at the Epic Races Tri Clinic.


The second hour will be a one-hour swim clinic.  Swimmers will be divided into lanes with individual coaches based on experience and ability.


First-time triathletes should register for both sessions. 
Experienced triathletes who are looking for swim coaching and training should sign up for the swim session.


But wait... there's more!! All swim participants get a FREE race belt and swim cap! $20 value!!
