Location: Lake Arrowhead Park, Luray, VA
Date: July 17, 2021
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 giving you practice time in open water. You do not need to be registered for the Luray Triathlon to participate in this clinic. You can use this as training and preparation for any other triathlon or open water swim.
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 in partnership with Coach Ed Zerkel of Team Z (adult triathlon training program based in Northern VA) and Lane 4 Swimming (adult triathlon and swimming training programs in Washington DC, Northern VA, and MD for people of all experiences and fitness levels). We will be there to talk 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.
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.
