Official Luray Triathlon Open Water Swim and Transition Clinic

Location: Lake Arrowhead Park, Luray, VA

Date: July 30, 2016 at 8:00 am

Geared toward triathletes of all levels, the Official Luray Triathlon Open Water Swim and Transition Clinic, located at the race venue, is designed to help you prepare for the Luray International and Sprint Triathlons as well as other short course triathlons with open water swims.

The clinic includes a lifeguard supervised open water practice swim and clinic in pristine Lake Arrowhead; a review of the race site and transition area; plus a chance to ask our team of coaches any questions that you have about the event.  You are welcome to bike and run the race course on your own as well after the clinic.

Presented by, Race Director Ken Racine and a Certified Coach (TBD) will be there to talk briefly about open water swimming and give tips for success. Most of all the practice is an opportunity for YOU as the athlete to get in open water in a safe, lifeguarded, stress free, non-competitive environment that will bolster your confidence come race morning. The course will be marked with buoys and you are welcome to swim multiple laps of the course within the allotted time frame. Please note that this is not an individual stroke clinic but you can register for optional stroke clinic later that afternoon.

For the transition portion of the clinic, there will be a review of the transition area and flow from swim to bike to run to finish.
