Mini Triathlon på Svolvær torg!
Klokken 11 holder Lofoten Triathlonklubb Mini Triathlon for barn.

Barna starter med en å løpe gjennnom brannbilens "dusj" et par runder før sykkelen tas i bruk i en liten løype fra Torget bort til Skandinavisk Høyfjellsutstyr og tilbake. Deretter parkeres syklene og det løpes en runde rundt torget før man passerer målstreken under Fiskehjellen. Alle får medalje, HUUB badehette og The Arctic Triple bolle :)
Alle typer barne sykler kan brukes enten det er sparkesykkel, balansesykkel, trehjulssykkel eller tråsykkel.

Velkommen!

The Arctic Triple at The Arctic Triple.

Team E d langt igjen!
Far og datter er klare Lofoten Triathlon! - håper de...

"Hele påmeldingen var rimelig impulsiv (enkelte vil si det er typisk for en av oss - les paps). Målet er å gjennomføre innen 6 timer - vi tror vi klarer det innen fristene, men det kan skyldes at vi ikke vet hva vi begir oss ut på." - Ove Andrè Pettersen

Både Ove og Ingrid er nybegynnere innen triathlon, men de er begge fysisk aktive og tar utfordringen på strak arm. Ingrid er tidligere håndballspiller og svømmer. Hun er i følge Ove litt mer forsiktig anlagt enn ham, men hun har en har en stahet som vil komme godt med under Lofoten Triathlon Olympic+.

Ove forteller at han har drevet aktivt med alt annet enn utholdenhetsidrett, men så deltok han på sitt første sykkelritt i fjor (Pilgrimsrittet på 87 km). Han går for tiden på sitt andre nybegynnerkurs i crawl og påstår at han klarer lett å svømme 50m... Om løping sier Ove at han inntil for to uker siden HATA å løpe, men etter 2-3 løpeturer har han funnet sitt tempo og er happy med å ha løpt ei mil uten stans her om dagen.

"Å være med på triathlon var en spennende utfordring utenfor komfortsonen, fint treningsmål og et flott påskudd til å trene variert sammen med pappa. Vi valgte The Arctic triple fordi det ser ut som den triathlon med vakrest naturomgivelser! Gleder oss til august!" - Ingrid

Velkommen til Lofoten Triathlon Ove og Ingrid! Gleder oss til å følge dere hele veien!

Vil du også være med? Meld deg på i dag på www.thearctictriple.com 🙂

The Arctic Triple feeling impressed with Mel Warnecke in Qatar.

From Qatar to do Lofoten Triathlon!

"I will spend the whole summer in Norway in order to be as ready as I can be!" - Melanie Warnecke, Qatar

She's a French girl living and loving her life as a full time mother in Qatar with her four children. Lofoten Triathlon Olympic+ is one of Melanie's stepping stones towards an iron man distance in February 2018. Her goal is ultimately to be one of the top 10 female triathletes in the Middle East by end of 2018! That rocks!

"If no one has called you crazy yet it only means that you are not training hard enough!" - Melanie

Welcome to Lofoten Triathlon Melanie! We look forward to get to know you 🙂
