Event details:

The USAT Paratriathlon Committee will partner with Sportable to host the region’s 3rd Annual Paratriathlon Clinic on May 2 in Richmond, VA. The clinic will feature instruction in wheelchair racing, handcycling, swimming, and amputee running and cycling.

The one day clinic on Saturday will offer new paratriathletes a chance to try all of the disciplines and seasoned athletes an opportunity to hone their skills for the 2015 season. Some racing wheelchairs and handcycles will be available for athletes to use during the clinic but please bring your own fitted equipment.

This clinic will serve as a lead-in to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Paratriathlon Championship, to be held at nearby Naylor’s Beach on June 7th. Naylor’s Beach Triathlon features a point-to-point swim with the current, followed by bike and run courses in the natural beauty of rural Virginia. Mid-Atlantic athletes can apply for regional mini-grants to help cover the travel and lodging expenses of attending either the clinic or the regional championship; more information on these funding opportunities can be found at http://www.usatriathlon.org/regions/mid-atlantic/paratriathlete-program.aspx.
