Five Coaches in Five Locations to help athletes get ready for IGNITE SwimRun events
IGNITE SwimRun has partnered with elite coaching companies to provide SwimRun specific training, clinics and workouts in each area of the country that currently hosts an IGNITE SwimRun event.
“As the sport of SwimRun grows in the U.S. more and more athletes are asking us for training plans, techniques, clinics and workouts that are designed specifically for SwimRun, not just triathlon templates” said IGNITE Co-Founder and Race Director Jay Peluso.
“It was important to get coaching companies that were local to our venues”, added Danny Serpico, IGNITE Co-Founder and Logistics Director. “We want our coaching partners to be familiar with the event courses in order to provide expert insight into the terrain, swim venues and what it takes to be successful on race day.”
The IGNITE SwimRun Series runs from May through October and will hit five states in 2019. The Official Coaching Partners for each venue are:
- IGNITE Maryland: Suzy Serpico with Rip It Coaching
- IGNITE Knoxville, TN: Lana Burl with LB Endurance
- IGNITE Minnesota: Corey Towle with Gear West
- IGNITE Rhode Island: Peter Russo with Russo Racing
- IGNITE Virginia: Dan Szjata with Grn Mchn Multisports
Each coaching company can provide detailed custom coaching plans for the specific race and will also host at least one SwimRun specific group clinic or workout prior to the event.
