SwimBikeRunFun Tri Fun Club Members Run Meetup

SwimBikeRunFun is all about sharing tips for women beginner triathletes looking to do their first triathlon, women looking for fun endurance multi-sport races and those looking for a training plan or triathlon tribe to explore the #swimbikerun life.


"The number of females who compete in triathlon has increased since the 1990s but the rate of participation in triathlon events remain lower for females compared to males", according to Romuald Lepers.


Starting something new or training for a new athletic feat can feel overwhelming, but a group of friends can make it a lot more fun. Have a buddy or an instructor that is relatable when learning about or training for a triathlon is worth more than a pound a gold - especially for women athtletes.


Women supporting and teaching other women in Triathlon is just a type of catalyst initiative we engage in over here at #SwimBikeRunFun to help bring more women into the sport.


Case in point: We are usually asked to host or help coach a few beginner "group ride 101" or "ows meetup" sessions locally. 100% of the time, an aspiring female cyclist or triathlete will come up to the "lady" instructors afterwards and ask "female" specific questions or compliment us on teaching them in a way that they easily comprehend.


Imagine how we excited we were when Triathlon Taren did a podcast on Women's needs as it relates to Triathlon with two prominent professional female triathletes, Sarah True & SaraGross this week.😍
