Expert Skills Clinics Free for the public in Albany by top Athletes
We are very excited to announce that in conjunction with The Department of Sport and Rec and the City of Albany, members of the public will be able to participate in free skills clinics this January, learning skills from some of Australia’s best sportspeople.
Our experts include Adventure racer Jarad Kohlar, 3 x Uncle Toby’s ironman Guy Andrews and MTBA mountain bike coach and Elite female mountain bike rider Jodie Willet.
Learn technical points on how to trail run along with techniques on how to make it better, safer and faster with Australia’s best adventure racer, Jarad Kohlar.
In the same way that a road cyclist and mountain biker are different, a road runner and trail runner have different skills, and once a road runner learns these skills they can run anywhere…this is such a perfect skill for the great southern region, given the amazing access to hiking trails and great walks in the area. Trail running allows people to take on these walks with greater speed, whilst enjoying the national parks and natural assets much quicker, even taking in numerous trails in one day.
Jarad will also be offering an expert skills clinic on paddling for both beginners and advanced paddlers with fellow adventurer Guy Andrews.
Guy Andrews, who is an accomplished Ironman surf lifesaver, sea kayaker, surfski paddler, adventure racer and triathlete will also be assisting with the expert paddling clinics free to the public. He will also be offering his experience to the Albany SLSC to motivate the nippers (young surf life savers) and the seniors alike.
Jodie Willet brings with her a wealth of mountain biking experience from both her elite level racing and her coaching of the up and coming junior mountain bikers whilst working with MTBA.
Jodie will teach the base skills for mountain biking and as each rider progresses more and more skills can be added before you have completely nailed each obstacle. There will be a women’s only session, junior session and an advanced skills session, with Adventure athletes Kohlar and Andrews offering assistance.
Each of the expert athletes are also competing at the Albany Adventurethon with all 3 Athletes excited to see Albany and its great natural Scenery (that we have been telling them about over the past years).
The Adventurethon Albany Event is on January the 9th at Anzac Peace Park and takes in some of the best paddling, mountain biking and running in the area. Sunday the 10th of January will see the Smaller event aimed at beginning adults and the energetic kids. (Each event can be completed individually or as a tag team)
