Start the year with a bang by ticking a triathlon off your bucket list.

The West Lakes Triathlon Club (the Lakers) is inviting you to join the class of 2020s’ “50 days to your first triathlon” program. Starting on 5 February, the program involves two sessions per week with the club’s specialist coaches, with each session designed to get you to the start line fully prepared for the  29 March Triathlon SA West Lakes triathlon. 

Even if you have already completed your first triathlon the sessions are extremely comprehensive and offer a cheap and efficient way to fast track your triathlon development. Let’s face it triathlons for a first timer can be crazy with so many things to learn, so why not learn from the best. The Lakers coaches have years of experience in the sport and are keen to share their knowledge with you. 

Be fast as places are limited.
