Pre-race triathlon clinics

We are excited to offer a pre-race clinic to get you familiar with the course, triathlon, and the area! We will cover basic USAT rules, transition, and some helpful tips to help you prepare for your race in November! Beginner or experienced, we have something for you!

Note: We will be previewing the sprint distance course by swimming, biking and running the Morro Bay Triathlon SPRINT COURSE, so please be prepared with the appropriate gear(gear list below)! Please keep in mind that this is a group clinic and not a race!

race clinic dates

Dates: TBA

Cost: $50/ea. Clinics are non-refundable. 

On race day I kept saying to myself I’m SO glad I took the clinic, it was one less thing to worry about as a first timer since we went through the whole thing with Jon!

I felt privileged absorbing his knowledge. Even though I now have several races under my belt… I would continue taking this clinic with John every year. This was my best race by far… both in my best times… and the least stress because I felt well prepared.
