Ironman legend Mark Allen joins TriathlonWise for coaching in Galway


Irish coaching and training business TriathlonWise is offering triathletes a unique opportunity to be coached by six-time Ironman World Champion Mark Allen in Galway this October.

The training clinic size will be small so early booking is highly recommended. Each athlete’s individual needs and questions will be catered for and TriathlonWise will tailor the content based on athletes’ objectives for the 2012 triathlon season.

Mark will guide athletes through three days of swimming, cycling and running as well as looking at critical topics such as strength, technique, psychological issues as well as nutrition. TriathlonWise is certain that the experience will take athletes’ triathlon and Ironman efforts to the next level.

Galway is known as the ‘City of the Tribes’; and it offers an ideal training location. Home to Ironman Ireland 70.3 and a number of high quality Olympic and Sprint distance triathlon races, it boasts a variety of clubs with a truly vibrant triathlon and Ironman scene.

With the rolling par-cour of Connemara and Burren in easy reach, Galway features some of the best cycling routes in Ireland, matched with the ‘prom’, a variety of running trials, and the clean waters of the Atlantic as well as a host of 25 metre swimming pools to choose from. According to TriathlonWise, as a location it offers a complete multisport experience.

As well as three days of coaching and an opportunity to learn from one of the masters of triathlon, attendees will be invited to a special dinner where Allen will tell legendary tales from his Kona days. He will be accompanied in the triathlon storytelling by Ireland’s own long distance triathlete DecaMan Gerry Duffy.

TriathlonWise was founded by William Johnstone, who, from 1998 to 2008, was responsible for bringing the CompuTrainer from RacerMate to the Irish market. Passionate about sports he completed his first triathlon back in 1998 in the form of the ‘Hell of the West’ in Kilkee, County Clare. Since then he has had a keen interest in triathlon, and with his coaching business is always looking for new challenges and solutions to help increase performance.

The Mark Allen coaching event is being hosted by TriathlonWise in the Salthill Hotel, Galway this coming October Bank Holiday weekend (29-31 October). For more information call William on +353 (0)91 447050 or email clinics[at]triathlonwise.com.
