Open Days

We will be holding two Leeds Triathlon Centre Open Day during the Easter Holidays:
  • Tuesday 22nd March 2016
  • Tuesday 29th March 2016
These days are open to prospective Leeds Met and Leeds Uni students with a proven track record in triathlon. They will give you a feel for the training environment here in Leeds and a chance to meet current athletes and staff. (These Open Days are separate from those held by the Universities.  For details see the website of the relevant University.  However in the past people have also taken the opportunity to meet with faculty staff at their preferred University/course either the day before/after or during the free time in the afternoon. This is down to you to arrange and cannot be guaranteed).

There are a maximum of 5 places available on each day. If you are interested in attending then please register your interest by making contact with a member of the coaching team using the details on the Communication page.

The format of each day will be:
  • 07.00-08.15: Swim Session @ The Edge, Leeds Uni Campus
  • 08.30-09.30: Breakfast and Q&A @ The Edge, Leeds Uni Campus
  • 10.30: Bike ride for 2-3 hours
  • 13:30-16:30: Lunch and free time to look around Leeds.
  • 16:30-17:30: Presentation on Leeds Triathlon Centre and Q&A with current athletes @ Leeds Met Sports Centre, Headingley Campus
  • 17:30-18:45: Track session @ Leeds Met, Headingley Campus
  • 19.00: Depart

What kit will you need:
  • Swim kit for pool swim session. No need to bring training aids as there is stuff you can borrow.
  • Bike, helmet and cycling kit suitable for winter/spring riding as the weather can be quite unpredictable!
  • Run kit for a track session.  You don't need spikes just wear whatever you are comfortable running in.  If you aren't used to running on a track then discuss this with the coaches during the day.
  • Drinks and snacks for the day. There is a Tesco express near to The Edge to buy some food for breakfast and there are plenty of local shops and cafes for lunch.
