NEW OR BEGINNER TRIATHLETE?

 

Check back here for information and updates about how to prepare for your first triathlon.  If you have already done a few then this page still contains useful information about doing your best!

 

I AM A NEW/BEGINNER TRIATHLETE.  SHOULD I DO THE CINCINNATI TRIATHLON?

 

Absolutely!  The Cincinnati Triathlon has lots of great things happening for the new or beginning triathlete.  Our swim is straight downstream with the current, no worries about looking for buoys.  Our bike is closed to traffic and there is plenty of aid on the run.

BEGINNER TRIATHLETE PROGRAMS 

Are you a new or beginner triathlete?  Triathlons, with swimming, biking and running incorporated in one race, can be very intimidating to the first time triathlete.  Don't worry, the Cincinnati Triathlon will do whatever we can to make your first triathlon experience a positive one.

  • If you are unsure about the swim, request a "Beginner Triathlete" cap color.  This color will be issued to new triathletes only and will help our lifeguards identify first time swimmers.

  • Join us at the 6pm on Thursday, June 26th at Public Landing for a Triathlon Walk Through.  We will cover topics such as transition, swim start, waves, and other things that might be confusing at your first triathlon.  Not only that, but we will be doing a triathlon "walk through" where we will visit the swim start, transition, bike and run starts to discuss how best to complete these sometimes intimidating parts of a triathlon.

  • We have set aside a special area of the transition for new triathletes.   A member of the TRI staff will be assigned to the beginner area to help you with set up and any questions you might have.

  • Lots and lots of people do the Cincinnati Triathlon.  Some are very competitive, but many are doing their first triathlon. We will do our best to make sure you have a great time.
