Tri With FAST

In 2015 we kicked off a member networking initiative, we continued that in 2016 but wish to expand it every year.  We have grown this last year in the downriver area.  We wish to do that in 2020 but in the Royal Oak and Troy area.  Those new members were able to share their email, the locations of their swim, bike, or run.  Other members were provided this link and they were able to read and reach out to find like training partners.  Join today to get that benefit.

Tuesday Evening Brick Ride at Newburg Lake (map)
This workout includes a 20-25 mile ride out and back on Hines Drive, followed by a 5 or 10k run around Newburg Lake. For 2018 we will attempt to have 3 different groups leave: 1st group 5:15 pm departure; 2nd group 5:30 pm; 3rd group at 5:45 pm.  Since we stongly encourge riding the course, like the race, with no drafting you are free to leave anytime between those departure slots.  This allows all levels of riders to plan their ride to finish about the same time.   Some rides will include drinks or snacks for members.

Saturday Morning Brick at Island Lake State Park (map)
This workout includes a swim in Trout Lake, followed by a bike ride in and around the Island Lake State Park / Kensington Metropark area. People ride between 10 and 50 miles, depending on their training schedules. Additionally, some people run instead of bike on the trails at Island Lake, or around Kensington. The connector path between Island Lake and Kensington has been reopened.

All speeds welcomed!

Free Super Sprints at Island Lake Spring Mill Pond

FAST typically holds 2 or 3 free super sprint sessions on the weekend during the summer to practice those transitions and to go super fast.  The distances are good for beginners too as the swim is about 250 yards along the shore, while the bike is 5.5 miles, and the run is 1 mile.


Monday Beginner Triathlon Training at Island Lake

Summer brings beginner triathlon training at spring mill pond.- There are paid (coached groups) and open (non-coached) group workouts on Monday.  In 2020 the beginner triathlon class sold out so watch for a spring announcment on our webpage and sign up right away.  In 2022 we will also offer a Tritahlon 201 course for those that have done triathlons but wish to move to longer distance races or perfect a few skills to reduce their race time.
