Clinics 2017

Bike Clinics

NOTE:   If it is raining Sunday morning, Brian has proposed the following for the bike clinic:

Here’s what I propose: In the event of rain, the ride portion of the clinic is cancelled, but those wishing to hear the talking part of the bike clinic can meet at the Stockbridge Bowl at 9:00, and I’ll give the talk through that I normally do. I can then drive the course with my 8 passenger mini-van, and anyone who wants to hop in the van can come along with me, or they can simply drive their own cars behind me to get an idea of the route.

 Brian and Andrew will meet you on Sunday, August 27 and Sunday, September 3 for their very popular bike clinics.  Meet at the Stockbridge Bowl boat ramp at 9am and be prepared to bike the course.  You will bike down to the race start in Great Barrington, but it will be a slow warm-up and it’s mostly downhill.  No mountain bikes please.


Run Clinics

Sunday, August 27 and Saturday, September 9.  Meet at the Tanglewood Main gate parking lot at 8am and be prepared to run the course.

Berkshire Running Center’s Shiobbean and Kent Lemme will host the JB Run Clinics.  The clinics are designed to help you understand the logistics and pacing of the Josh run leg.

NEW!  Josh Billings Iron Clinic

Saturday, September 9 at 9:30am.  Meet Kent at the Stockbridge Bowl boat ramp.

Ironman winner Kent Lemme will host this iron clinic.  Bring your boat and your bike and Kent will walk you through every aspect of the race from race week preparation through the finish line.  Kent will be hosting an unstructured paddle and ride so that you may practice your transitions.


Paddle Clinics

Canoe/kayak/SUP clinic dates for 2017:  Wednesday, July 26 and Wednesday, August 23.    Meet Kurt, Jeff and Chris at the Stockbridge Bowl boat ramp at 6pm and be prepared to paddle.


NEW!  Crossfit Workouts

Mike Bissaillon is offering free Crossfit workouts on Mondays 7/10, 8/7 and 9/4 at 6am, 9am,  noon and 6pm.  You do not need to pre-register for these classes.  Attend them all and see how much stronger and faster you’ll be on September 17!
