This is a specialist sport which encompasses four different disciplines as one race. The disciplines are running, swimming, board paddling and ski paddling. As with triathlon racing the intervals are either a time gainer or a time loser. There is a skill in these change overs and with this course you will learn the techniques that I have during the years of my racing as a semi-professional Iron Man.
The Aims; to concentrate on staying with the pack on your weak legs, the use of wash riding is advantageous. When feeling stronger push up the pace of the race, especially on short course Iron Man races.
There are two different types of Iron Man Racing - Endurance (long distance) and sprint format (short course).
Tip: The run and change over between each leg are good opportunities to gain time on your opposition.
This course involves classroom and practical exercises.
