The Roanoke 70.3 triathlon is coming to town June 7, 2020 and we are hosting another free seminar where you can learn from local triathlon experts about the importance of training and technology as you prepare for the race.
Many of the top triathlon coaches use data from wearable technology to determine the best training for their clients. Many athletes wear this technology, but do not know how to apply it to their training.
Our panel of experts will dive into some of the helpful technology available today to guide triathlon training. This will include Garmin wearable technology and proper bike fit and equipment. We will also have time for questions and answers from class participants.
Where: Fleet Feet Sports, 4347 Franklin Road in Roanoke
When: Monday, November 18, 2019 at 7:15 p.m.
