SPECIAL TRI TRAINING*
We would like peo ple to meet up on a Saturday and Sunday morning where we can guide you through a typical triathlon course ( this is free ) so first you would swim then transit to your bike then go on a 25 mile road course then return to run around the lake.This is a great opportunity to meet others wishing to enjoy this sport and give you advance experience before your forth coming event. We would meet at the lake at 11.30am and then progress from there. All your cars and wet suits etc will be safe here when you cycle.
Last year we welcomed tri clubs to bring all their members together with their own coach to experience racing, drafting and mass water start practice. This proved to be very successful and for example TAFF ELEY TRI CLUB from south wales brought 50 swimmers. Our lake is big enough to take many more
