Free Summer Clinics
To celebrate our 15th anniversary, and to promote women's participation in Multi-Sport as part of USA Triathlon's Women's Initiative, Tough Cookies is offering a series of FREE women-only clinics through the summer consisting of open water swim, cycling 101, running, and a transition and mini-triathlon clinic. All events will be hosted by Tough Cookies, a USAT and Ironman Women-Only Triathlon Club and led by USAT and Ironman Certified Coaches.
Our series is part of USA Triathlon's Women's Initiative to promote women's participation in multi-sport.
