Saturday Training

Regular Saturday training is primarily at Carver barracks, Wimbish just out of Saffron Walden,  during school term times.  We do use other training venues for either away days or when we are not able to use the barracks.  

Training will be a combination of bike & run as we currently have no weekly access to a pool for regular training since the closure of Walden School.  We recommend all members join a local swimming club such as Seals as swimming is a key discipline in triathlon.  We do aim to do a monthly swim session at Bishop Stortford College which focus's on key skills for triathlon.

The group the member trains with is dependant on their racing category which is by year of birth, not school year.  The training groups are as follows:

Group Born in Race Category Main Training Venue Training times
Group S 2012 TriStart Carver Barracks or Crabtrees 8.30am to 10.30am

Carver barracks (Directions). This provides an excellent opportunity to cycle on tarmac or off road on mountain bikes in a safe car free environment where group riding can be coached and cornering skills practiced. Each group is lead by a team of coaches and a different discipline is done in each hour. You can see the activities for each group this term by clicking on the groups names or using the menu above.
