Created by Active Training World Ltd and called the ATW Train’athlon, the new event appealed to Vanessa who is keen to encourage people to join the sport, she told us "I'm really looking forward to working with ActiveTrainingWorld at the ATW Train'athlon and helping newcomers to triathlon get hooked on this fantastic sport!" 

The first of these Train’athlon events takes place on Saturday 5 January 2013, in the modern and well-equipped Sports Centre at St Margaret's Private School in Bushey, Hertfordshire.

With exclusive use of their luxury 25m heated swimming pool, sports hall and idyllic outdoor setting, event attendees will have a fun, informative and energetic full day of training. Triathletes will take part in various training sessions throughout the day with top professional coaches – some of whom themselves are former Olympians or have been part of the GB Triathlon team during their careers. And of course, Vanessa Raw, will be taking part throughout the day to offer her advice, support and motivation to those that attend.

The sessions include improving your swimming techniques and an introduction to open water swimming, transition coaching – mounting and dismounting at speed, bike handling skills, advice on how to avoid specific triathlon injuries and an optimum bike set up.

Active Training World Ltd will be hosting these events throughout 2013 and in various locations throughout the UK. They cost £90 per attendee, which includes five training sessions, breakfast and lunch, a free event t-shirt and swim cap. Plus the opportunity to meet and train with our special guest Vanessa Raw and other GB triathletes and former Olympians.
