Chilliwack’s Toth teaching triathlon

Professional triathlete Anthony Toth will try to relay his years of experience to the next generation of triathletes.

Professional triathlete Anthony Toth is joining forces with the Chilliwack Youth Triathlon Club, and will lead summer training sessions for the triathletes of tomorrow.

Toth will run two week-long programs.

The first takes place July 8-12, from 10 to 11:15 a.m. daily at either the Cheam Centre or Twin Rinks field.

The second takes place August 6-9, same time and places.

The cost will be $55.

The programs will teach the basics of triathlon with a focus on skill development, fun and fitness.

There are a few requirements. Kids must be able to swim 25 metres without the aid of a floatation device and feel comfortable in deep water.

They must have a bicycle that is in good working condition and helmets are mandatory.

They must wear running shoes. Sandals and crocs won’t do.
