Life Time Tri events attracted more than 28,000 athletes in 2014 ‘uniting professional, amateur and new triathletes from around the world.’ Elite and professional triathletes competed in International/Olympic distance races featuring a 1.5K swim, 40K bike and 10K run racing for ‘America’s largest pro cash purse.
Select events also host Sprint or Super Sprint distances for age group and beginner triathletes in addition to kid’s triathlon events in select markets.
Earlier this month, Life Time and IRONMAN announced a planned collaboration to promote the growth of triathlon and to welcome new athletes into the sport through education and premier events. As an ‘Official Sponsor of the IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 U.S. Series’, Life Time’s 13 Sprint and International distance triathlons will be contributors to the IRONMAN Age Group Ranking and IRONMAN All World Athlete programs.
To prepare athletes of all fitness levels for triathlon, Life Time offers a variety of training options at its 112 destinations nationwide. Life Time Endurance coaching, Starting Line 101 Clinics, Triathlon Camps, Life Time Tri Team group training and Indoor Tri events, along with complimentary educational sessions and race simulations ‘provide all the tools needed for success.’
To kick off the 2015 Tri season, Life Time, in collaboration with IRONMAN, will host an Indoor Triathlon Workout on 4 January 2015 as part of ‘Commitment Festival’ at Life Time destinations nationwide across the US.
The 60-minute workout will feature a 10-minute indoor pool swim, a 30-minute indoor cycle ride, and a 20-minute indoor treadmill run. Athletes of all abilities from beginner to experienced are invited to register. All participants that register for and attend the Indoor Tri Workout are eligible to enter for a chance to win one of three slots to the 2015 Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Zell am See-Kaprun, SalzburgerLand, Austria – or, one of five slots to a Life Time Tri Series race.
