Hillingdon Sport and Leisure Complex
A free day's training & coaching for those wishing to try the fastest growing Paratriathlon sport from the world's most successful paratriathlon nation.
The focus of this day will be to introduce new & novice paratriathletes to the structure of paratriathlon within the UK. The athletes will be introduced to the opportunities within paratriathlon on how to progress from participation through performance events toward high performance.
There will be a large practical element to the day with athletes having the chance to enhance their skills and work with coaches on swim, handbiking, running and wheelchair pushing techniques. Participants will be given the opportunity to undertake a swim and run/wheelchair assessment that will compare their performance to current GB and World best times. There may be the opportunity to video some of these sessions and to provide individual and group feedback.
The day will be facilitated by Scott Murray, a Level 3 triathlon coach and the London Paratriathlon ID coach. We hope to have a number of coaches to work with the athletes that attend, as well as members of the GB Paratriathlon Squad to discuss their experiences racing at national and international events.
