In Store Clinics Feb 9th: Triathlon for Beginners



We are very saddened to inform that tonight’s Tri clinic will be cancelled. This is due to a very sudden and untimely death in Mark Wilson’s immediate family two days ago. We had attempted to arrange for a different speaker but at such short notice, it was not possible to finalize anyone to come in. The current plan is that the second February clinic that Mark was due to speak at is going ahead on Saturday 2/28 at 5:00 and hopefully the crowd that would have attended tonight will be able to come on the 28th. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mark and his family in this difficult time. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and hopefully we will all be able to show our support for Mark at his clinic on the 28th.



In the run up to HITS triathlon March 28-29, Ocala’s largest triathlon race, we will be running a clinic for all you first timers out there. Mark Wilson, the race director of HITS Ocala, will be leading the clinic and will be sharing his wealth of experience with us.

The clinic will take place at the shop on Monday 9th February starting at 6:00
