We have some cool training clinics and programs this year! Join one, join all…designed to building to Ironman Augusta 70.3! Check out our calendar:

Winter – Charlotte RaceFest Half Marathon

Need to get back into the swing of things, but sometime the cold prevents you from wanting to focus on swimming and getting on that bike? Well here is a good 12 week training program to prime you for the rigors of triathlon training. We all know that running is the last discipline of a triathlon, and for a good percentage of us, the hardest. So let’s build a good base by training for a half marathon!!

Registration fee: $20

RYPE Back To Basics Swim Clinic

All of us need to brush up on our technique. As triathletes we need to ensure that our technique is on point. What we don’t want to do is expend a lot of energy during our swim, leaving us nothing for the ride and run. This 4 session (once a week) clinic will break down the swim to its basic movement, allowing us to build from that back to an efficient effort in the water.

Location: TBD

Spring Tri
Spring – Tri Latta/Tri Ballantyne

Ahhhh…triathlon season! Tri Latta is one of the most popular races in the Charlotte area. Race solo or as a team, this is one of the premier races of the season. This race includes and 750 meter open water swim in Mountain Island Lake, followed by a 17 mile nice ride through the Huntersville area, and then a 5K trail run. Not ready for open water? Well then hold off a few weeks and do Tri Ballantyne! This race includes a 300 yard pool swim, a 12.7 mile bike through lovely Ballantyne, followed by a 5k run. Both events are equally awesome!

Registration fee: $45

Fall – Ironman August 70.3

Awesome race! We’ll end the season with a half ironman distance race that boast one of the fastest swim in the circuit! All this in preparation for Ironman Chattanooga in 2016! This 70.3 is a quick 1.2 mile swim in the Savannah River, followed by a 56 mile bike ride that will take you into South Carolina and back, and then one of the most spectator friendly 13.1 mile runs you will ever participate in! This is a 16 week training plan. This race is perfect for relay teams as well. Fast course!

Note: As a training race we are going to do Lake Logan Olympic distance in August. This is optional, but you don’t want to miss out on this fun weekend!

Training registration: $55
Registration opens: March-1-2015

RYPE goes RED for WOMEN!

We couldn’t be more excited about our upcoming inaugural 5k run/walk. We partnered with Go Red For Women, which is a cause dedicated to informing women of their risk for heart disease. Did you know that  heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer? Did you also know that 64% of women who die suddenly of coronary heart disease had no previous symptoms? And when we drill down further to women of color, the risks increase even more.

So support the cause and register for this fun event! We are all about being heart healthy….so how about a little red wine and dark chocolate once you finish your run?! Your $15 registration fee gets you all that!
