New to the 70.3 race scene as of 2018, this course is fast for sure. Water temps can be nice and cool as is the air temperatures to start the day. Could be just what you needed to get that half ironman PR?! This Tristar Athletes training plan has training stress that hits it just right for the bike and run sessions timed to keep the feet fast coming off the bike.” —Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach
A fun course for sure and a speedy one at that. Our athletes love the weather and time of year of the event. It has a great "vibe". The Tristar plan calls for a mix of long and short intervals on the bike in the aerobars. We course specific training sessions in the aerobars uphill so that you can crank on the flat sections of the bike course and still run well.— Megan Tobin, TSA Level I Coach

A great course for first time athletes and a flat and fast bike across the dam ensures a quick day. The lake swim is beautiful with a looped run within the Santa Fe Recreation area. For our Tristar Southwest teammates this is a local favorite training plan where we introduce plenty of heat specific training sessions with extensive heart rate controlled runs to finish in a "scary" good time! —Cliff Scherb TSA Level III Coach.
This is a fast course with lots of turns on the bike. You will need to keep your head down to go quick and save energy for the run. Our Tristar plan build up training stress and specificity for riding a bigger gearing on a flat course. Specific brick and trainer sessions will make sure you can finish strong in Tempe. —Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach
What could be better... tougher... than doing a half ironman on the world championships course? Honu! Hot and challenging on the run, this course will test your mettle. This custom coached plan calls for our heat acclimation and protocol as well as open water swim workouts with flat course aerobar sessions. One of our favorite 70.3's here at Tristar Athletes. -Coach Haluk Sarci, TSA Level II Coach.
One of the tougher half ironman on the Ironman circuit. Hilly and extensive long climbs on the bike make this course one of our favorites here at Tristar. For your plan we feature muscular endurance sessions for the bike and the run to make sure your go big in the desert. (*Plan includes custom course Zwift workout files)
“An underrated course is what we say. It may be at the epicenter of triathlon (San Diego, CA) but its a low key competitive event. The sand beach run makes it a challenge and the Socal vibe is present. This custom Tristar training and race plan has pool based open water swim sessions to get you race ready as well as trainer sessions with larger gearing for the flat bike course. ”
Certainly one of the most beautiful courses out there and in wine country! It can be hot and the Tristar plan calls for our heat protocol to make sure you can hang tough through the day. This plan also includes extra time riding in the aerobars for a quick bike on raceday. —Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach
