Time to start gearing up for the last 5 Peaks race of the season and the Blitz Duathlon this Fall! Join us on Saturday, September 7th at the Station Flats parking lot in Bragg Creek at 9:30am. At this clinic, we are excited to have Trevor Williams join us to talk about racing strategies. He will share strategies that will help you decide how best to tackle the terrain of these races, be efficient on the ups & downs, and give it your best performance right to the finish line. He will also touch briefly on pre-race preparations for the days leading up to the race, as well as mental preparation strategies for race day.! After the talk we will run the first leg of the Blitz Duathlon, an out and back on Sulphur Springs Trail (7.km, with the option of adding an additional 4km to the run by running up, up, up the Diamond-T Loop at the end of the run! Come on out and bring your 'race face' with you!!
