The Tri-Port Multisport Club is kicking off another season for local athletes interested in cross-training and competing in triathlons.

Club training will begin Thursday, Oct. 20, with a swimming session at Port Hardy pool from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for all swimmers level 4 or above. Pool fees are $25 per person and covers weekly sessions until January. Stroke correction is available, or bring your own workout plan.

The first spinning (cycling) session will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23, at Funtastic Gymnastics and Trampoline Centre in Storey’s Beach. Payment options are a 10-punch pass, monthly pass or drop-in payment.
