Celebrating the sixth year of this program! Prepare for a late May or June Sprint, Olympic or Half Ironman/70.3 event while enjoying the beauty of winter and early spring in Prospect Park! Nothing motivates like training in a group setting. Head into the 2020 racing season fit and ready to race.
Athletes are streamed (basic, intermediate, advanced) based upon current fitness, goals, and athletic progression. Focus is on skills mastery, functional strength, race strategy and pacing, and aerobic development.
This program prepares athletes of all levels for Sprint, Olympic or Half Ironman distances and is excellent early season preparation for advanced athletes who will compete at USAT Nationals, Ironman Lake Placid, Ironman Mont Tremblant, or Ironman Maryland.
