Training Sessions

Duathlons – 12th and 26th August 2018

This year, the club is running some untimed duathlons in August, as a practice event to get you back on the bike and running before the season proper.
These will be held at the Bendigo Livestock Exchange, Wallenjoe Rd, Huntly.
Dates: Sunday 12/8/2018 and Sunday 26/8/2018, arrive at 8:45am sharp for a 9:15am start.
Our course has a 1km bike loop and a 0.5k run loop.

Two events will be run, both will be a 1k run, 4k ride, 1k run (2 laps/4 laps/2 laps). 10 minutes after the first event finishes, the second event will begin.

If you’re new to triathlon or to our club, we’d love for you to come along, meet some of the club members and have a go! You can observe the first event, before jumping in on the second event.
Cost will be $5 to cover the use of the venue. Note that these events are untimed, so BYO watch.

Club Training Sessions

There are many groups that train together on a regular basis, however these sessions are often word of mouth and meeting places/times are always changing. Our suggestion for new members, is to come along to one of our club triathlons and talk to other members or the committee. This is a great way to find a group that suits your ability.

Swimming Training MON-WED-FRIDAY 6AM Bendigo East Pool

A friendly swimming group train together throughout the week. swimming can be daunting for some but the best way to improve is “swim more laps.” There is a lane for all abilities.
Others train on a regular basis at Crusoe Reservoir and again @ Bendigo East Pool Tuesday & Thursday.
These are often word of mouth sessions. Contact club stalwart Nick Walsh for details on 0418 509 256.

Riding Training

Many of our members ride with already established groups coordinated by the cycling community. There are several groups that cater for all abilities that leave from the Sternberg Street roundabout on Saturday mornings.

There are also many tri groups that leave from Max Bakery on a Saturday morning from between 7-8am – beginners, veterans and even a high level group that can sometimes train up to 180km on a Saturday morning. You also get the bonus of a coffee and cake from our sponsor Max Bakery! Bendigo Tri bunches generally finish around the same times between 9:30am and 10:30am @ Max Bakery.
