Transitions Triathlon and Fitness will kick off its “Give Tri a Try!” spring training program at Carson City’s Bike Smith.

The program kicks off at 7 p.m. today and at 8 a.m. Saturday, March 27. The 14-week long group training program will help beginners prepare for their first race and help more experienced athletes improve their race performances.

The program will include weekly training schedules customized to each participant’s level, weekly group training sessions, technique and equipment evaluation, hands-on guidance in swimming, biking, and running, nutritional advice, and many other practical tips from an experienced team of USA Triathlon-certified coaches. The program will be designed to prepare participants for the Donner Lake Triathlon races in July.

The cost of the program is $150 which includes a $25 tax-deductible donation made in each participant’s name to the American Heart Association. For more information, contact Ray Henderson, (775) 315-2866 or at
