For 2016, YWCA Fitness on 25th is proud to once again be the host facility for the only women’s triathlon training group in Saskatoon, the Just Tri It Program. The Just Tri It Program has been around for about 15 years; making YWCA Fitness on 25th their home each season. The program is set to begin at the YWCA on March 20th with their annual kick-off event with training continuing until May 15th. The Just Tri It program provides participants with a friendly, supportive and safe atmosphere to train and complete your first triathlon. The group helps create strong bonds of friendship and provides the exercise and training benefits of a shared experience.
The focus of the program is a fun, relaxed and informal setting with the goal for all to complete the Makin It Happen for Marlene Triathlon set for May 15th, 2016. This race will ask each participant to swim 200 meters, bike 6 km and run 2 km. No one needs a special bike and many will complete the bike training and race with whatever two-wheeler they have in their garage.
The group swims at the YWCA Sunday mornings through the training period and runs after meeting at the YWCA on Thursday evenings. Just Tri It also bikes on Monday evenings. The program has an early bird registration special offer of $165 if you register prior to March 1st. The registration cost from March 1st and on is $185.
