Novice Program

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 in November.

The program is open to all people over the age of 18.

The next program will be offered in October/November 2017. 
The cost of the program in 2016 was $375 and included: Triathlon Australia Membership, Club Membership, entry to 2 races, 8 weeks of coached training, and an end of program celebration dinner.
