In the spring of 2015, Jodi McNeil of Running Free, Richard Pady of Healthy Results and Lisa Hogben of Onward Upward Multisport launched the first Orangeville Women's Triathlon Clinic. In this clinic we offered weekly swim lessons with Coach Rich, running skills sessions with Jodi and Norm of Running free, Bike information sessions with Jeff Lemon of Cycling Elements as well as other workshops. With the wonderful success of this clinic, it was offered once again in 2016 and more than doubled the number of participants. We arrived at Iron Girl in Grimsby with well over 50 ladies from Orangeville, and surrounding communities. The group cohesiveness far surpassed the boundaries of the Start to Tri Clinic, and it became evident that a Triathlon Club was the sensible next step.
