All of our training session have been designed in collaboration with our TriNZ accredited coaches. This means they are planned carefully and they are designed to get you in shape, with the events that our club supports as performance goals. Our sessions are based around duration rather than distance. meaning you can go at your own and still be on the same course as others most of the time.
