Training Camps Offered: We offers triathlon clinics for beginner to advanced athletes. 2013 marks our 5th year with the popular novice clinic series. They are a lot of fun, and hundreds of triathletes and soon-to-be triathletes have made it to the starting line more confident as a result. Each clinic begins with an informal talk, questions and concerns are addressed, and each participant leaves with a hardcopy of the tips and topics covered. We then proceed to the workout of the day, practicing what we have learned. All levels of experience are welcome and included, we won’t leave you behind!
The intermediate/advanced series is for more seasoned triathletes seeking personalized attention in a small group setting. Please contact us for more info.
Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
