People  interested in participating in a triathlon this year now have a class in Lafayette to help them to get started.

Justin Chester, a Lafayette resident and USA Triathlon coach, this month is starting a new class at Bob L. Burger Recreation Center to get people in competition shape. 

“I started the program in Parker four years ago,” Chester said. “I’ve been a triathlon coach for 11 years now. What I found when I started training was it was somewhat intimidating. Boulder County has become a hot spot for triathlons. There are numerous pros that live in Boulder. To that point, it can be more intimidating for someone new to the sport when Boulder is so ripe with professional runners, professional cyclists and the like.”

Chester said he wanted to create a program that would not only help people get the proper training, but provide a good support system.  

“I wanted to open a program that was not intimidating, but it was something that would allow beginners to have a head start in all the things I didn’t know as a beginner,” he said.

In the program, participants will meet multiple times a week and train in all three events.
