TRAINING SERIES SCHEDULE
Week 1 - Swim Focus

Let’s dive in. Week 1 will focus on the first leg of triathlon, swimming! Whether you are new to the sport of swimming or come with lots of experience in the pool, night 1 will teach you every thing from the basic skills to more advanced triathlon specific skills. You will also be given your 5-week training plan and training swag bag based on which distance you hope to compete come race day.

Bring: Swim Suit, Goggles and Towel

Time to crank it up! In week 2, we focus on the second leg of triathlon, biking.

Bonus! Swimming training will be offered this night following the bike session for anyone interested in continuing to improve their skills in the pool.

Bring: Bike, Helmet and Swim Gear

Move those legs; pump those arms. For week 3, we focus on the third leg of triathlon, running.

Bring: Running Shows and Swim Gear

In week 4, we will focus on triathlon transitions (swim to bike, bike to run). This Transition Clinic will teach you the fastest way to move from swimming to biking and biking to running. You will learn what to expect come race day and how to lay out all your equipment in transition.

This helps you understand what to expect come race day and arms you with tricks to make your transitions faster.

Bring: Swim Suit, Goggles, Bike, Helmet and Running Shows

Mock tri time! This is the best part of the training series. We conduct the evening as an official triathlon race. We treat it just like race day so you can emulate what you will do on race day. All participants come together at Memorial Park in Bentonville to partake.

We finish with a training series class dedication that is the heart, sole and mission of our Foundation and training series of the past. At the end of week 5, you will be a triathlete and if you already are one, you’ll be an even better one!

Bring: Swim Suit, Goggles, Bike, Helmet and Running Shows

Week 1 - July 28: 8-10am
Week 2 - August 4: 8-10am

The training series helped me build confidence, connect with other like-minded individuals, and grow both physically and mentally stronger.

Just in time for my 30th birthday, I finally learned how to swim and it was at last years training series. I was the one blowing bubbles that first night, trying to get over the anxiety of just being in the water. The coaches were SO patient and super helpful. By the end of summer, I was a fish!

The first time I considered doing a triathlon was that first year of the Trifest. I didn't even know how to swim! I came to the training session and met Jo, and I figured if she can do what she does with a smile on her face, then I could do a tri. She is still smiling, and I am still racing!
