Introduction to Triathlon on Race Day

Years ago when we created the tri series in Petersburg we knew the April races would attract new to the sport athletes that may have some questions.

As the race management staff we were able to answer most but felt we could do better at answering racer questions and providing a greater comfort level for the tri “newbies” .

To address this need we are proud to offer a short yet information rich briefing on triathlon on race day.

Erik Rankin, Owner and USAT Certified Coach from Grim Reaper Fitness has gracioulsy offered to provide a talk/briefing at 11am on race day for any athlete at any level.

Erik will answer any and all questions and help ease you into your first triathlon or your 10th.

For this to work in the short time available you need to have your bike racked and everything in transition. If you need help in transition getting ready ask any Grim Reaper Fitness racer for tips or you may find Erik in transition waiting to help.

There is no charge for this briefing and please take advantage of this opportunity to learn from a Tri Expert on how to do things right and give you a great triathlon experience.

You will meet at transition to start the briefing and we plan on having the pool open for your swim related questions.

See you on race day.
