Clinic Descriptions:

TRI 101 for Newbies

Are you wondering, “Oh my gosh – what did I get myself into?”  Well, no need to be asking that question.  We are here to put your mind at ease.   What do I wear, what equipment do I need, what training is needed, what is race day like?  Answers to these and any other questions you may have will be answered.  We will have some first-time participants tell you what it was like for them on race day too.  You will leave feeling good about the journey you are about to be on!

Ride the BIKE course

Riding the Tri for a Cure Course is always great training. The better you know the course for race day, the better prepared you are. sheJAMs will be there to lead the way as we bike the full 15 mile course!

BRICK!  (Bike-Run Transition)

What is THAT?  A "brick" workout is a training session where you do two legs of a tri back-to-back with little rest in-between.  Why would we do this?  There is no better way to understand how your legs will feel when you jump off the bike and prepare to hit the run course.  This clinic will also offer a great opportunity to practice your transition from the bike to the run before race day. We will do 2-3 loops consisting of a 3 mile bike and .65 mile run.

Tri for a Cure Swim Clinics

There will be three on-course swim clinics held at SMCC. Open water swim expert, and Tri for a Cure Swim Coordinator, Kirsten Read from sheJAMs & KGR Coaching, will discuss water safety, navigation and provide important swimming tips before sending waves of women into the water for a swim around the course. Trainers, race director, and volunteers will be available following the swim to answer any questions and concerns. These clinics are offered to provide women with the chance to experience an ocean swim with a group, as it will be on race day. This will be a good opportunity to practice with your wetsuit and get comfortable with the cool water temperature. We will have sheJAMs “SWIM ANGELS” available for those who need them.

All participants are encouraged to swim in open water with your wetsuit several times before race day.  The clinics are a way to experience swimming with a group of 100 women in a swim wave.  Race day should not be your first time in open water.  Please be prepared, because swimming in cold open water on race day take practice.

We will also practice (T1) transition – so bring your running shoes.
