3. Swimming FAQs

A prominent learning from piloting TRIactive was the number of questions that participants new to triathlon had about each of the 3 disciplines and none more so that swimming. This compilation of swimming FAQs is not finite, but it will help answer many of the questions posed at the start of the program and settle any concerns around swimming in the sea, plus start new conversations about triathlon participation generally.

For the occasional cyclist, it may not be clear and obvious what 'roadworthy' really means when it comes to their bike, especially if it hasn't been out of the garage in a while!

This guide will provide them with the advice they need to ensure they ride safely come race day and by providing it to them early in the process, coaches can minimise any last-minute dramas!

We found there to be fewer questions about running compared to swimming and cycling, however, this compilation of FAQs remains a good resource to provide to participants at the start of the program to settle any concerns and start new conversations around running during the program and on race day.
