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 over the age of 18.
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.
***PLEASE NOTE: To register for this event you must first be a member of FIT and Triathlon Australia. For more information on how to join please visit our memberships page.
