TRAINING

The Sulong Triathlon Group is a very diverse group of passionate individuals!  We are all about training hard, finding the fun in our workouts and enjoying social time together. To accomplish our goals, we look to many training options, tools, and methods.

This is one of the things that sets Sulong apart; we realize everyone's schedules may not be able to accommodate a set weekly training regime. 

   

Below are summaries of our training options for each individual discipline within the sport of triathlon, as well as ways to connect as a club using electronic training tools.  If you have any questions about these, feel free to contact us.
