2022 Annual General Meeting

It’s that time of year again, when we review what happened last year and look forward to the new year. Make sure you complete your registration so you can vote. The meeting will take place after track practice. There will be food!

2022-2023 Season has started

Welcome to Triple Threat’s 2022-23 Season!

Triple Threat Triathlon team, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, is a diverse group that includes novices training for their first triathlon (swim-bike-run) or duathlon (run-bike-run), and experienced athletes, competing in Sprint and  Olympic distance races.

Our club’s coaching and training focus is centered on training for Sprint and Olympic distances. We also have members who train and race for 70.3 and Full Iron distance races.  Our coach additionally provides a Lifestyle training stream for members who are less competitively minded but want to train regularly for fun, fitness and group support

Weekly workouts will be delivered and monitored by the coach using Training Peaks.  We enjoy three coached workouts per week:

Our training season runs from November to the end August.  As hosts of the event, members are required to volunteer at the Triple Threat Birds Hill triathlon in early June.  We have regular social activities and offer a weekend Training Camp in the spring.

In-person training will follow government Covid-19 protocols of the day if/when in effect.

Triple Threat membership fee:  $170

Triathlon Manitoba ($10) and Triathlon Canada ($15) membership fees, processing fee and GST will be added automatically at checkout.  Please note that there are 3 separate waivers to review and accept before you can complete the transaction.

Registration is live here.

And the race is over!

That’s a wrap for 2022. The Birds Hill Park and Kids of Steel triathlons are over. We hope you had a great time participating. We certainly had fun hosting it.

A few things were left behind – two pairs of goggles and a pair of arm warmers. If they’re yours, please contact me so we can get them back to you.

Now it’s off to Montreal (for some) for the World Triathlon Championship Series or St. Malo for the second triathlon in Manitoba. Good luck to all the competitors!

Training Camp!

We’re off to Falcon Lake for our annual training camp. Looking forward to some trail runs, a long bike, yoga and time in the hot tub to recover! No open water swimming just yet. The weather looks like it will cooperate as well.

Summer Membership

Are you ready for in person racing this year and haven’t found  a team to train with yet? Triple Threat offers summer membership for the months of April to August. There will be a few more workouts at the track at Max Bell before we start running outdoors. Biking will continue on Zoom for a few more weeks also, until the roads are cleaned up. Swimming continues until the end of May at the Active Living Centre at the University of Manitoba.

Receive your workouts through Training Peaks and train with our team. Register here.

Open water swimming techniques – in February??

This coming holiday Monday, February 21st, at 9:30am, we will be hosting our open water techniques and simulation session in the training tank at Pan Am Pool.  You will have to pay for your own entry to the facility and be a current member of the team.

We’ll be working on open water swimming techniques, with lots of drills and group work.  Sighting, goggle adjustments, drafting and race starts will be some of the things covered.

Because we do not have lanes reserved for this session, it is a fun mad scramble to secure two lanes for the team right as the pool opens, so arrive early and be prepared for a quick transition!  You must have proof of vaccination to enter the facility and don’t forget to bring a mask to wear right until you get into the pool.  No special equipment is required, but if you have a flutter board or pull buoy, bring it along as we may make use of it for sighting drills.

Back to in person workouts

We’ve been extremely cautious during the Omicron outbreak and paused on in person workouts at Max Bell and the pool. But now they’re back. Starting Wed., Feb 2nd, we will meet at Max Bell for track from 6:00 – 7:30. Sat., Feb 5th is the first day for swimming at the Active Living Centre from 1:30 – 2:30. Watch your email for full details.

And here’s some of the activities we were doing over the holidays.
