    Tri-Newbie Program



    Whether you are afraid of water, have no bike (yet) or have difficulty running once around the track, you CAN be a triathlete.  For over 5 years TRiWi has helped similar athletes get to the finish line of their first sprint triathlon through training, motivation and education.

    TriWisconsin invites EVERYONE (over the age of 18) to learn more about how and why now is the time to pursue your dream of becoming a triathlete. 

    The Tri-Newbie program will be start with our Triathlon 101 Clinic on Monday, April 23rd at the Brookfield Wheel and Sprocket.  A fun and personable group of panelists will spend an hour answering your questions and providing an introduction to triathlons and triathlon training.

    Workouts will be modified for skill level of participants and updated and distributed weekly.

    Join your fellow TriWisconsin teammates to ride the full 112 mile Ironman bike course!  This will be a great opportunity to test yourself over the distance.

    • We will start in the parking lot near the boat launch lot at Olin-Turville Park.  Arrive by 6:30AM, course debrief at 6:50AM and wheels out promptly at 7:00AM.  Don't forget to get your TriWi sticker to wear to identify you as part of our group.
    • Be mindful of where you park!  Additional parking can be found at the Alliant Energy Center ($7-cash only) and the Monona Terrace Ramp ($5).
    • Course maps and cue sheets will be available the morning of the ride.  Please familiarize yourself with the course map in advance. 
    • There will be 2-3 groups of varying speeds going out, so you can ride with others.  For safety reasons, headphones will not be permitted.
    • We will provide two aid stations on the loop (equaling 4 fueling opportunities).  Aid stations will be located in Mount Horeb and Vernona. 
    • You must be able to complete the course in the Ironman cut-off time of 8 hours and 10 minutes averaging a pace of 13.7mph.  The Mt. Horeb aid station will be available until 12:30pm and the Verona aid station will be available until 2:00pm.  Plan accordingly if you will be on the course past these times.
    • There will not be any official SAG support for major mechanical issues.  Please be prepared to fix your flats (just like in the race).
    There's a nice trail in the park for an optional run after the ride, so don't forget your running shoes!


    VOLUNTEERS! These rides would not be possible without great volunteers. We are looking for assistance with the bike groups and the aid stations.  Please, we ask you to step-up and consider helping us out.  Sign up here.
