April 14 Team Update

The weather gods have been smiling down upon us this April….so far!! First full week of workout have come and gone successfully!!

Going forwards our schedule will look as follows:

Tuesdays at 6pm on the Horseshoe loop south of the Leaf in Assiniboine Park for an Interval Run

Wednesdays at 6pm at the Assiniboine Park Duck Pond for a group interval bike

Below please find a few updates from Triathlon Manitoba:

Bikes for Kids:

  • 2024 is a Manitoba Games year, which means we have a bunch of 10-15 year-olds looking to have their best races this summer.  Triathlon’s equipment demands are tough on every athlete, but even more so for growing athletes.  To help connect MB Games Kids with affordable equipment options, TriMB is canvasing clubs and membership for anyone with an older road bike they no longer use (or at least which they could be without for a summer), to sell, loan or donate to a MB Games Athlete.

If there are any club members with bikes that would be appropriate for a MB Games Athlete, please have them provide to Triathlon Manitoba:
– A photo of the bike in question
– Any sizing information they could provide about the bike
– Whether the bike is available for Sale or Loan for the summer (and if so what price they are asking) or if the bike is a donation.

Bike Maintenance Session – Saturday, May 4th:

  • TriMB is hosting a bike maintenance clinic at the Sport MB building.  The clinic will include how to change a flat tire and how to identify problems with your shifting and/or braking set up.  There is space to add some extra curriculum if there are other topics that people would like to see included. 

New Events for 2024:

  • Hopefully you’ve already seen The Pas Tri-Community Triathlon as a new kids- & family-focused event on our calendar for June 1st this year – April also saw the launch of the Interlake Kids of Steel event in Arborg on July 6th.  Both events will be qualifiers for the Manitoba Summer Games, but they’re also the only two pool-based triathlons in Manitoba, so they’re great options for newer or nervous swimmers too.
