Training Overview

Our brick sessions have enjoyed solid turnouts and really happy athletes. No swimming required (yet), but be prepared to start with your feet in the water.

Members and non-members are welcome with a respective fee of $2 and $5 per session. Bring your wetsuit, bike, helmet, sunglasses and runners. We will time you coming out of the water (we wet your feet hahaha), transitioning to your bike, then a 9 km ride followed by a 2 km easy run (distances are approximate and may change with location). Good practice, with socializing after at a local eatery.

An hour-long session held Sundays at 10:30 a.m. at the Comox Recreation Centre, and Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. at the Fitness Excellence Gym on Moray Place.

For 7:30 – 8:30 Tuesday and Thursday mornings at the Comox Valley Aquatic Centre. Freestyle-focused swim fit. There are no fees to participate in swim fit. Simply pay your entry into the pool and join us. Everyone is welcome!

The Valley is fortunate to have an amazing choice of times, groups and interests in running. There are a number of people that organize different runs each week.

You would like to try a triathlon, but the swim is too daunting? Come on out with a group of swimmers who have all been there. Open water swims are being proposed after work at least every second Friday this summer in Comox Lake (once the lake warms up enough). Even then wet-suits are needed. All levels of swimmers are encouraged to participate and we will make sure no one gets left behind. A stand-up paddle board or kayak will be present to help keep an eye on everyone plus a few big orange inflatable “swim buddies” that attach to your body will be available. Temperature, tides and interest permitting, extra swims will take place at the Lake or in the ocean at Goose Spit. Check the CV Tri Club Facebook page for specific dates, times and locations.

Held at Comox Lake, an Aussie Pursuit Mini-Sprint can be a ton of fun for everyone. A 375 m swim, either a 14.5 km road bike course or a 9.4 km mountain bike course, and then a 2.5 km trail run in the Comox Lake Park (same trails used in MOMAR). The goal is to make the finish times for everyone all close to each other as possible. So we start the old and slow first, then delay the start of the younger and faster athletes to have them chase. Plans are to hold these on the last Wednesday of every month. We’ll duly recognize everyone’s accomplishments, but the series accomplishments are what really counts.

Start time will be 6:00 pm sharp so show up at 5:30 to have lots of time to sign on, sign a waiver, get a bib number, set yourself up in transition and get your wetsuit on. Meet at  the covered picnic table on the beach at the very end of the road/parking lot in the campground.
