Naperville-based Endure It! Sports will present a Triathlon Day Camp on Sunday, May 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. This program is geared for women of all ages and experience levels who plan to race in the Naperville SheROX Triathlon Sunday June 10th.
The camp will help women with their training and preparation for the upcoming Triathlon. There will be a discussion on nutrition, gear and recovery. Participants are asked to bring their bike, helmet and running shoes. Campers will ride from the store to Centennial Beach and review a swim start and a mock transition. The group will then ride a loop of the course and be given course strategies and the regulations of competing in a certified USAT triathlon. The group will then return to the transition area and head out for a run. After returning to the store, a healthy lunch will be served and an additional group of women will speak and share their stories, anecdotes and advice. The panel will include four athletes who are both new and old to triathlon.
Leaders of the program will feature Mary Tobiason, the 2011 Naperville SheROX Triathlon overall champion. Mary will be defending her title this year and is eager to share her knowledge and experience with others for this fun event. The camp will also include Sara Fix a 15-time Ironman finisher; including two Hawaii World Championships. Sara is co-owner of Endure It, mother of three and a wealth of knowledge in all things triathlon. Erik Walter, manager and head bike tech at Endure It! will review pre-race checks to ensure a safe ride. The panelist of competitors includes Gretchen McCarthy, Michele Ahlman, Katie Dumford and Liz Flowers.
“This camp will provide solid ideas and strategies from tri veterans for the first-timer to the frequent triathlete seeking to further reduce her time on the course,” said Sara Fix of Endure It! Sports. “And you will never forget your first triathlon so why not make the most of it?”
The cost for the event is $125; $50 for Endure It! Club members as long as they bring a new athlete. All campers will receive a 15% store discount during the camp.
