How to finish your First Triathlon with a Smile on your Face!
Triathlon 101 

Learn all you need to know to successfully train for and complete your first triathlon in this free session brought to you by Ann Arbor Tri Club and Epic Races.

Join the growing ranks of triathletes from the age of 7 to 70+. Even if you have never swam in a lake, ridden a bike more than a few miles, or even run a mile, you can train to complete a triathlon this summer! Topics covered will include: How do I train? What kind of bike should I ride? What should I wear? Can I wear fins? Do I need a wetsuit? Can I wear a life jacket? Where can I buy triathlon clothes? Is it ok to ride a mountain bike? How will I know where to go? Where do I change after the swim? I’m really slow, is that ok? Can I wait for my friend after I get out of the water? How do I swim faster? How can I get faster transitions? What if I get a flat? I swim fine in the pool, but I’m nervous about open water. What should I eat? All of these questions plus more will be addressed at the Epic Races Tri Clinic.
