The Canberra Bilby’s Triathlon Club offers a great introduction into the sport of triathlon through its annual Novice Program. The Bilby’s Novice Program has been running since 2000. Since its inception, approximately 50-80 novices each year have become triathletes. The novice program caters for all levels of abilities and goals, from people who have no idea about triathlons and may not have ridden a bike for 30 years, all the way through to people who are competitive runners, swimmers or cyclists looking for a new challenge.
The novice program is comprised of approximately 6-8 weeks of training sessions in running, swimming and cycling designed to increase your fitness and improve your performance. The program also provides information sessions on various aspects related to the sport of triathlon, and finishes with your first novice distance triathlon race.
The program is open to all people over the age of 18.
The program includes Annual Triathlon Australia Membership, Annual Club Membership, and 9 weeks of coached training.
2021 Novice Program Postponed
We have reluctantly decided to postpone the annual novice program which usually runs from September. Due to COVID restrictions, we are unable to run a safe and effective program at this time. Depending on the situation, we are hoping to offer the program in the New Year. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page, this webpage and our newsletter for updates.
