Cardinal x Fleet Feet Triathlon Training Program

Come Train With Us!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the first annual Cardinal x Fleet Feet Triathlon Training Program in Spring 2023! We hope you'll join us next year!

Interested in training for your first triathlon? Or have a few under your belt and looking for a training group for the next? Look no further! Cardinal Bicycle and Fleet Feet Roanoke have teamed up to bring you a training program for the Smith Mountain Lake Sprint Triathlon.

This program is designed for complete beginners who want to learn more and improve, as well as people with some experience and want to be part of a special community and receive special benefits. Our goal is to make training for a triathlon less intimidating. 

A sprint tri is a highly accessible training goal with an 8 week program. This goal race in May includes a 750-meter swim, 20K bike ride, and 5K run. (Perfect for beginners and no overnight travel required!)
