What: 12 week program with 6 coached practices (1 every 2 weeks)
When: August 1, 2017-October 21, 2017
Coach: Ironman Certified Coach Sara Larson
Cost: $180 per athlete
Why this Race: It is known for its fast/current assisted wetsuit legal swim in the Banks Channel, it’s flat/fast bike leg mainly along Highway 421, and its scenic run that begins and ends along the River in Historic Downtown Wilmington. It is great for First Timers at the 70.3 distance and a fun PR course for those trying to beat a time goal.
Who: This 12 week program will be designed for beginner/intermediate level triathletes. You will receive the entire 12 weeks worth of workouts at the beginning. You will also have the opportunity to attend a coach lead training session once every 2 weeks. The time and location of these practices will be determined by a poll of the participants prior to August 1. If you are interested in an individually customized program, this is also an available option for an additional cost.
Minimum Requirements: you should be able to complete a 1,000 yard swim workout, a 15 mile bike workout, and a 5 mile run workout before August 1.
Coach Sara’s B2B/Ironman NC race experience: This race will always have a special place in my heart. This was my first ever 70.3 distance triathlon back in 2011. In 2012, I came back because I enjoyed it so much and came in 5th Female OA on my second attempt at the 70.3 distance! Then in 2014, I returned for my first ever 140.6 distance triathlon. I came in 4th Female OA that year and was able to take home my first ever prize money for a race because you did not need to be a Pro to earn prize money:) My most recent race in this location was last year in 2016, when it was bought out by Ironman. I competed in the shortened “Full” distance race and placed 9th Female OA and 2nd AG. With all the time I have spent down in the Wrightsville Beach/Wilmington area racing, training and vacationing it has become one of my favorite places in North Carolina.
