Triathlon Transition Clinics

Learn what it takes to master T1 and T2 with our triathlon transition clinics. Gets tips from the pros and practice your technique to be ready for race day!

Shaving 5 minutes off your swim, bike or run takes a lot of work. With our tips and strategic organisation, you could potentially save even more time than this with only 90min of guidance and practice.

These clinics are just as relevant for experienced athletes as they are for beginners. For the experienced athlete, 15 seconds faster in transition could be the difference between a podium spot in your age group. For beginners, these clinics will give you the knowledge you need to successfully navigate each transition.

  • You will fit right in, regardless of your pace. Swim paces between athletes vary from ~2:45+/100m to ~1:15/100m.

  • You need to be comfortable being in the open water for 45-60min.
  • Although we practice open water skills, these swims are workout based, it is not a swimming lesson. If you are planning to race in a triathlon or an open water event and are looking to improve your skills and endurance, these swims are for you.
