Pre-Race Clinic with Madison Multisport

Date: Saturday, May 20th, 2017 – Details
Location: Sandy Beach Park, Lake Mills, WI – Map & Directions
Time: 7:30-10:00 AM

Madison Multisport will be hosting the Lake Mills preview clinic. This clinic is geared toward the beginner athlete looking to do their first triathlon or intermediate athletes seeking insight on a particular course. We will help you feel more confident, prepared and excited for race day.

The clinic will be hosted by the Madison Multisport coaches Cindi Bannink and Steve Brandes, each with 10-15 years of coaching experience and elite level racing.

At each RPC we will highlight the following:

  • Pre-race preparation & race gear checklist
  • Transition setup, layout, and tips for speedy transitions
  • Developing your race-day routine & what to expect on race morning
  • Open water swim skills practice including sighting, entries and exits
  • Abbreviated previews of the run and bike courses (we will not have time during the clinic to preview the entire course, however, you are welcome to ride/run the course after the clinic)

Come prepared with all the gear you think you might need on race day, including:

  • Swim gear: suit, goggles, cap & wetsuit (if you have one)
  • Cycling gear: bike, helmet, shoes, sunglasses, shorts & top
  • Run gear: shoes, hat
  • Transition/other gear: water bottle, sunscreen, race belt, towel, change of clothes

We hope to see you at one of these clinics this summer! Bring your race day gear and great questions!
