Triathlon has been quipped to be for those who don’t understand that one sport is hard enough! If the bug has bitten badly and you are now looking to up your game in this sport – then this workshop is just for you! In conjunction with PeptoSport and Garmin, the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA), is hosting a highly informative workshop on all you need to know about triathlon training and performance.

Boasting an awesome line-up of speakers – we have none other than professional SA triathlete, Andrea Steyn leading up the team.

The range of topics includes swimming training and the advantages of wearing a wetsuit; getting the best out of your bike and run; the 4th discipline (transition); the highly under-rated value of recovery as well as some motivation from cancer survivor, avid blogger and triathlete- Chantel Rall.
