Can I REALLY Do A Triathlon?

Taylor Davis - First Time Triathlete

Taylor Davis, UBC Student

“I always wanted to try a triathlon but was intimidated by the long distances. I tried the short distance at the UBC Triathlon Duathlon and it was perfect, even though I had never biked or swam competitively. I loved it so much that i’m taking it one step further and doing the sprint next year!”

Taylor’s Top Pick: Sign up for the First-Time Triathlete package to learn all the basics from experienced triathletes. A shorter distance, or a modified or team experience is also a good bet for your first triathlon.
