Group Training Program for the McKinney Kiwanis Triathlon

Join our 8 week training program that kicks off January 27th and experience the contagious energy of training with people all sharing the same goals and challenges! Training with our group has endless benefits: a structured program, safe and trusted training routes, opportunities to meet new friends, not to mention coached workouts! Accountability is also a huge perk as most athletes find they will go the "extra mile" when they are not alone.

Timing chips are assigned to participants according to bib number. Triathlon participants should pick up your timing chip the morning of the race at the chip timing station an hour before race start after being body-marked. ALL TIMING CHIPS SHOULD BE RETURNED AFTER YOU CROSS THE FINISH LINE. A $30.00 fee will be charged to the participant if the timing chip is not returned.  Awards are based on chip times.
