The 2017 edition of the Twin Lakes Triathlon in Palatine will take place on Sunday, June 25th. This local neighborhood race is our "home race" and the post-race Egg Harbor breakfast in the park for club members and their families is always top notch! Online registration for the race begins this Monday, March 13th. The early-bird registration price before April 15th is $60. However, as official sponsors of the race, we have been given a special discount code for all Buehler Ytri members! Members can save 10% ($6) with our discount code. All current Ytri members will receive the discount code via email on Saturday, March 11. The code will come in an email from Eventbrite, so be sure to check all your inbox folders. If for some reason you do not receive the code, email [email protected] We ask that you refrain from sharing this code with friends and family who are not members of Buehler Ytri. (If you have friends who are interested in Ytri, they can sign up for the club. Remember, club registration is free this year!)
When: 8:00 am, Saturday April 9th
Where: Buehler YMCA State Room
Your triathlon race is approaching and one of the most intimidating parts of the big race for you might be the transition area. It can be confusing and overwhelming for any triathlete not to mention the first timer. The transition itself has been called the fourth discipline, and is often overlooked for improvement; yet it is one of the easiest places to find time savings.
Join Coach Sam for our transition clinic April 9th @ 8:00 am at the Buehler YMCA. He is going to share the "do's and don'ts of transition," and tips on how to get in and out as quickly as possible. Sam will also cover a typical race day schedule so you can feel prepared when your big day finally comes. This is a great opportunity to learn more and ask questions.
Hope to see you there!
We announced some changes to Ytri programming for the 2016 season, so we wanted to make sure nobody missed the news!
