RACE: Chicago Kids at Foster Beach- Saturday 8/24
TRI CLUB: to provide kids and teens of all athletic abilities the opportunity to train for triathlon races in a team environment. We meet just south of Foster beach parking lot at 4:30 PM. We warm up, do core exercises and do a swim-bike -run workout. Parents are welcomed to volunteer/workout with the kids. Early in the season when the lake is cold we bike-run and jump in the cold water after we're warmed up. Younger members bike 1-2 miles on the gravel path (no traffic/cars) and run about 3/4 mile. Older participants can bike up to 8 miles and run 1.5 at each practice. Members may also attend select pool training at Jones Prep at no additional charge.
New member orientation is Thursday June 11th at 5 PM! Bring all gear and wear suit under run clothes! Call Coach Lance at 773-316-8348 with any questions.
