Group Training Program for the Take on the Heat Triathlon

Join our 8 week training program that kicks off June 23rd and experience the contagious energy of training with people all sharing the same goals and challenges! Training with our group has endless benefits: a structured program, safe and trusted training routes, opportunities to meet new friends, not to mention coached workouts! Accountability is also a huge perk as most athletes find they will go the "extra mile" when they are not alone.

Pre-register by Wednesday August 14th at info@playtri.com and get a 30 minute Consultation with a Playtri Coach free during packet pickup hours at the Playtri Store only.  This is your opportunity to meet with a Playtri Coach and get advice on any topic.  A schedule will be sent out to registrants a week prior to pick a time slot.
