6 x Ironman World Champion Dave Scott has been confirmed as a special guest at the 2014 Triathlon Show. Chrissie Wellington’s former coach, Dave Scott, will be at Sandown Racecourse in Surrey, UK, for the entire weekend of the show. He will lead seminars and offer top tips to kick-start training in the New Year.
The Triathlon Show, which takes place at Sandown Racecourse from 28 February to 2 March 2014, is positioned as being ‘ideal for everyone from experienced triathletes to those starting out in the world of all things swim, bike, run.’
The show has undergone significant changes for 2014 following its acquisition by Immediate Media Co, publisher of 220 Triathlon, ‘the UK’s best selling triathlon magazine’. With 40% more floor space, visitors will be the first to see the newest 2014 kit and apparel, get tips from some of the biggest stars of triathlon, enjoy free 1-2-1 swim, bike and run assessments and take home personalised training programmes.
Dave Scott started his impressive winning streak only two years after the first ever Ironman contest launched in 1978. His victories and heart-breaking battles with Mark Allen are highlights in the history of the sport. Scott held the world record for an iron distance event with a time of 8:01.59 in Japan in 1989.
He also held the course record for Ironman Hawaii from 1980 to February 1982, and again from October 1982 to 1989.
Now working as a triathlon coach, fitness consultant, motivational speaker and commentator, Scott utilises his years of experience by offering unique and creative training plans for athletes of all abilities.
The 2014 Triathlon Show will bring ‘a host of new zones, interactive features and exciting content to thousands of new and actively participating triathletes.’
In the Zoggs’ Swim Zone visitors can take to one of the two pools for a 20-minute swim analysis session with elite coaches. Riders can bring their bike along to the Triathlonguard Bike Zone for a full set up with Bike Science or make use of the show’s on-site mechanics, plus see the latest triathlon and carbon bikes and stock up on a range of cycling accessories and components.
In the Run Zone athletes will have the chance to purchase the latest range of shoes and kit and even take part in the Triathlon Show 10K Challenge on Sunday morning. Meanwhile, the Running School sessions aim to improve running technique and help athletes learn how to remain injury free.
