District Triathlon Transition Clinic

February 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

One Day Transition Clinic provided by District Triathlon to help you get race ready this season.  Focus will be on how to set up your transition area on race day, bike mount / dismount and bike to run transition and water/sponge tips.  

An efficient transition can mean a PR, while being less prepared and disorganized can cost an athlete precious time and quite a bit of mental distress. Here is  a simple guide that can help any athlete shape their race day performance.

The key is to focus on three components:

  1. Knowing your event
  2. Practicing
  3. Simplifying gear and set up
