Welcome to GGTC's 13th Tri & Give (TAG) Season! This ten-week training program will begin on Saturday, February 22, 2014 and run through race day on Sunday, May 4, 2014.
We’re looking for ordinary people ready to experience an extraordinary event. YOU will be training for the Tri-California Wildflower 2014 Olympic Distance Triathlon on Sunday, May 4, 2014. You will swim .92 mile, bike 25 miles, and run 6.2 miles. When you cross the finish line, the feeling of triumph is an adrenaline rush beyond compare, with bragging rights to match.
Neil Fraser, the veteran TAG coach and accomplished triathlete, will lead this ten-week training program along with his terrific coaching staff from TRIMORE Fitness. This program is designed specifically to fit your level of fitness and ability. The Golden Gate Triathlon Club will provide you with experienced volunteers and membership in the club voted “Best of the Bay” three years running!
A portion of the program’s fee, minus administrative costs, will be donated to a local charity. GGTC's 2014 beneficiary is Trips for Kids Marin. Thanks to GGTC members, coaches, and participants, we have raised over $90,000 and shared our passion of triathlon and sports with others in our community. GGTC and TRIMORE Fitness would like to help you complete a triathlon while simultaneously helping the community!
