Beginner Triathletes, We’re Here for You!

We’re excited to announce our Beginner Triathlon Series for essentially all ages, young and old, will be held again this August, every Tuesday night around 6 p.m. at Haviland’s Cove in Glens Falls. We’ll have a mini triathlon course set up for your athletic pleasure. Race the clock and challenge yourself from week to week, or simply practice your swimming, biking and running (and transitions!) This FREE event is hosted by the Club and made possible by the Glens Falls Rec Department. Those who come all four evenings will receive a special “prize” at the end. 

Preregistration by July 24 is encouraged: Email

Please arrive early to check in or sign up.
