The afternoon seesions will consist of running and cycling sessions focusing on a number of skills and tactics specific to triathlon, including mount/dismount skills, duathlon challenges, and open water skills session in the lake using the elite pontoon start (athletes should be able to swim 400m in the pool). All contained within our dedicated Skills School area within the Event Village, we have access to a large grass area of Roundhay Park, suitable for off-road cycling and running.
