The Tri and Give (TAG) program is the Golden Gate Triathlon Club’s 10-week training program for people new to the sport of triathlon, or people who want to learn more about structured training principles, and prepares them for an Olympic-distance triathlon.
GGTC works with TRIMORE Fitness to support these athletes to approach an Olympic distance triathlon with strength, endurance, and confidence! The Tri & Give Program has been running for 13 seasons.
There will be two TAG Olympic-distance triathlon training programs in 2015:
TAG to Wildflower 2015 Training Program
February 21, 2015- May 3, 2015
TAG to Santa Cruz 2015 Training Program
July 19, 2015 - September 27, 2015- Registration will open in June 2015.
Since its inception in 2002, more than 600 athletes have gone through the program and successfully completed their goal race. A portion of each participant program fees are donated to GGTC's current Non-Profit Partnership beneficiary. The program has raised over $90,000 for local non-profits, including:
- Special Olympics of Northern California
- Big Brother/Big Sister of Marin and Napa
- Girls on the Run Bay Area
- Real Options for City Kids (ROCK)
- Jamestown Community Center
- Lincoln High School cross-country running team
- Trips for Kids Marin
- KEEN (2011-2012)
TAG program fees for 2015 will be donated to GGTC's Non-Profit Partnership 2015-2016 beneficiary, San Francisco Senior Centers. Read more about GGTC's Non-Profit Partnership Program here.
