2019 Women’s Triathlon Training Program
The Women’s Triathlon Training Program (WTTP) is a training program run by Females in Training (FIT) as an introduction into the sport of triathlon. The program offers training sessions in each of the three triathlon disciplines (swimming, cycling and running) in a friendly and encouraging environment. The WTTP is open to all women aged 18 and over.
If you have ever thought about doing a triathlon and then the next thought started with ‘but…’ then the WTTP is right for you. Our mission is to give you the confidence to complete your first triathlon and have a great time doing it.
Note: you must join both FIT and Triathlon Australia (TA) to participate in the WTTP, and select the “TA Adult competitor membership” to gain the appropriate personal liability insurance to train and compete. You will be redirected to Triathlon Australia’s membership system to do so. Please see our membership page for more details.
