The race will go on at Black Ridge & there will be a swim clinic too!
There have been some people concerned about the water level in the Black Ridge Res. We have been working really close with the AMAZING city of Herriman and discovered they have dipped into those water reserves to save homes from the Rosecrest fire last month… “Lives before TRIs” … good policy I spoke with Danie Bills from Herriman City today (7/13/12) and she informed me that they are slowly filling the reservoir (should take another two weeks or so) and it will be good to go for the Escape from Black Ridge! Now with that said we are inviting all Black Ridge TRI athletes to join PRO Heath Thurston at Black Ridge for a swim clinic the week of the race.
Open Water Swim Clinic TUESDAY August, 7th 2012
Winner of the 2011 Salem Spring Triathlon, Heath Thurston will be hosting an open water Swim Clinic at Black Ridge. Heath is an expert multisport athlete. While he excels in all the disciplines of triathlon he will be the first to admit that “THE SWIM” is his strong point. Almost always the first one out of the water Heath has perfected the discipline of open water competition. On Tuesday night Heath will review the swim course, open water techniques and race day strategies. Bring your wetsuit and goggles, its your chance to have your stroke analyzed by a Pro. you do not want to miss it! Packet pickup will NOT be available at the clinic – for information about getting your packet please visit the Black Ridge race page
When asked what he does Heath responded “I train as a Professional Triathlete myself then I coach other athletes as well, mostly in the swim. My wife and I also have a corporate wellness program that we do for businesses in the [Utah] valley. I love doing Triathlons and coaching other people to see their potential in the sport and get them to have confidence in swimming biking and running to do their first Tri.To inquire about joining HT TRAINING Contact Mahogani at: firstname.lastname@example.org
