You’ll not only get an overview of swimming, biking, and running, you will learn about necessary gear, nutrition, training, and even ride and run the Longmont Tri course so you know exactly what to expect on race day. Each Saturday has a different emphasis, so you are encouraged to attend all 3 sessions.
