One month till the AlbanyTri – Clinics available

Posted on Updated on

With ONE MONTH to go before the Albany Community Triathlon on Sun 9/25 at 8am, the AlbanyTri organizers hope everyone had a great summer and are getting stoked for the event. If you haven’t yet registered and plan to race this year, there’s still time to sign up before the next price bump on 9/12 (after the Solano Stroll). Sign up on our registration page.

The first SWIM & TRIATHLON TRAINING CLINIC will take place this SUNDAY 8/28 at 9:00am at the Albany Aquatic Center. We’ll cover some general triathlon tips and will get in the water to work on swimming techniques to boost your power and confidence in the water. Details and registration links for the clinics can be found here.

To confirm your registration for the Albany Community Triathlon (and make any changes to your info), go to the following web page and click the “Confirm Registration” link (on the right side of the page if you’re on a desktop browser):

https://www.racemine.com/Albany-Community-Triathlon/events/2016/albanytri

You’ll then get prompted to enter your email address that was used for registration. If you’ve registered, it will send you an email message containing the confirmation link. Visit that page if you want to review your registration info and make any changes. If you haven’t registered yet (or you entered the wrong email address), you’ll get an error message: “We could not process your request.” In that case, either try a different email, or head over to https://albanytri.com/register/ to sign up!

Happy Triathloning!

Albany Triathlon Training Clinics

Posted on Updated on

Interested in boosting your swimming technique? Have any general questions about how to do or train for a triathlon? Come to one (or both) of the clinics at the Albany Aquatic Center to get some advice and pointers to help boost your confidence on race day for the Albany Community Triathlon (Sunday 9/25/16).

Clinics will be run by Steve Trutane (triathlete and a race organizer) and Carol Nip (certified USMS masters swim coach). See links below for more details and registration:

If you are interested in getting some open water coaching, check out this clinic on Sat 8/27/16 at the Richmond Plunge and Keller Cove, organized by RichmondSwims.org. You need to be a current USMS member to participate in that clinic.

And don’t forget to register for the AlbanyTri soon. The next price bump happens on 9/12/16 (after the Solano Stroll). Race organizers will be at the Albany Athletic Boosters booth at the Solano Stroll and will be accepting registrations and talking about the race there, as we’ve done in previous years.

Happy Training!

Welcome Super Youth!

Posted on Updated on

Kids ages 5-8 can now join the multisport fun at the Albany Community Triathlon!

New for 2016 is a “super youth” division to accommodate those high-energy tots. The super youth course is a very short version of the main course: 1 lap in the pool (25y), one lap on the bike (0.5mi), and a half lap around the park (0.25mi).

There will be just 1 or 2 super youth heats which will start after the main course participants have cleared the pool (approximately 11am).

The super youth also qualify for a super price! Registration is now available for all categories of participants (adult, regular & super youth, and teams). Sign up today and best of luck to all in your training this summer!

Registration open for AlbanyTri 2016

Posted on Updated on

Registration is now available for the Albany Community Triathlon, taking place on 25 September 2016. Sign up before July 25 to lock in early bird pricing. Registration prices and a link can be found on our registration page or here’s a direct link to our registration provider.

We’re using a new registration service provider this year (Racemine.com) that should provide a smoother registration experience and reduced processing fees. However, if you run into any issues, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Looking forward to another day of fitness & fun at the AlbanyTri this year. Happy & healthy training to you!
