ATHLETES planning to enter Hartlepool’s Big Lime Triathlon are being offered help to ensure they are ready for the challenge.
A special “Try a Tri Day” is to be held on Saturday, September 7 to give people an insight into what is required to successfully tackle a triathlon.
Gemma Ptak (CORR), sport and physical activity lead officer for Hartlepool Council, said: “The session will be led by British Triathlon-qualified coaches with a vast amount of knowledge and experience in triathlon.
“It is open to anyone aged 16 and over and is designed to cover each discipline of triathlon – swim, cycle, run and transition. By the end of the day competitors will have all the skills and knowledge needed to participate in the Hartlepool Big Lime Triathlon.”
The session which is being organised by Hartlepool Council’s Sport and Physical Activity Team, will be held from 9.30am-3.30pm. It costs £5 per person. It will take place mainly at English Martyrs School, although there will be an open water swim from 1.30-3.30pm at Hartlepool Marina.
The “Try a Tri Day” will cover bike skills, swimming drills, transition skills, core stability and putting on and removing a wetsuit. For more information or to book a place contact Gemma Ptak on 01429-523441 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
