Group Training

SPECIAL GROUP EVENTS

March events are being planned, more details soon! Also check out our Mentoring Program page for many of their new events starting in March.

RECURRING GROUP EVENTS

Thursday morning group run: This run has been going for about 5 years now! Meet us in the Forest Park visitor’s center parking lot and be ready to run at 5:50am. The group does one loop of 6.6 miles, with options to go shorter or longer. The pace varies and the group sometimes splits into pace groups. This is a no-drop run, so don’t worry about being left behind. It’s dark at start time, so lights and reflective gear are recommended.

Sunday morning swims: The Club has reserved the use of the Whispering Hills club house pool (12545 Markaire, St Louis) on Sundays from 8-10am. The pool will be open every Sunday with a few exceptions for holidays and other events. We will occasionally host a challenge or coached swim, but will leave a lane open for those who have their own plan. You can do your own swim or join the Mentoring Program’s swim, which you can learn more about on the Mentoring page.

Tri Club Group Run in Forest Park

Meet at 6:00am in the parking lot across from the Visitor’s Center. Runners do one 6.5 mile loop at 8:30-10 min/mile pace, which will vary with attendance. The run is always counter-clockwise from the visitor’s center, so you also have the option of running clockwise from Skinker to join us. We will not drop a runner if they don’t want to run alone. We run in almost any weather Mother Nature throws at us with the exception of active lightning or multiple inches of snow. If a run begins in the dark, headlamps or lights are recommended.

Ironbrick Bike Trainers and Group Ride hosted by Athletico

IronBrick
Join IronBrick Head Coach Paul Schon and Tri Club Gadget Guru Bill Sanders for a discussion of various types of indoor trainers and how to make use of them in your training. The focus of this presentation is the hardware and associated gadgets and programs that help make indoor training fun and effective. This is going to be a useful session for those that already own trainers or not! We will be having a group trainer ride session immediately following where we hope to have loaner trainers for those who do not own one yet.

The clinic on trainers will run from 2 PM – 3 PM. We will have a brief intermission to allow everyone to get their trainers set up, then join us for the group ride from 3:15 PM to 4:30 PM. Please let us know if you need a loaner trainer!

TriSmart Swim Clinic- Whispering Hill Clubhouse

TriSmart_gif_logo

TriSmart Training Systems’ Jennifer Meyer will lead a clinic on March 11th 8:15-9:15am reviewing skills, drills and techniques you can do in a regular lane in the pool to prepare for open water swimming.

In St. Louis, much of the year we are not able to practice swimming in open water.  Sometimes we are able to setup open water swim practices at a pool by taking out the lanes and setting up buoys – that’s great when it can be done!

BUT, what about the rest of the time?

You can improve your open water swim skills in a regular lane in the pool.  Attend this clinic on March 11th and learn about ways to improve your open water swim practices in the pool.
