Swim England North West are to support the Manchester’s Tri Expo 2018 when it returns to EventCity, Manchester on 10-11 March 2018
Once again, the organisers will be hosting two shows in one, Bike Expo and Tri Expo, embracing all aspects of swimming, cycling and running. The Tri Expo is unique in that it is the only show of its kind to cover the North West of the UK, an area renowned for cycling and triathlon. The show is positioned as a must attend event for anyone interested in cycling and triathlon, as well as those who want to try a sporting challenge for the first time.
Swim England have said ‘Whether you are a total beginner to swimming and need to learn the very basics, or even a honed athlete looking for tips to gain that extra advantage, we can help you.’
As a national governing body for swimming and a range of aquatic sports, Swim England can help direct athletes to adult swimming lessons, masters swimming clubs or swimming sessions to improve overall fitness.
Swim England National Masters and Open Water Officer Sharon Lock said “The Tri Expo is a fantastic opportunity for us to get to know how we can support swimmers and triathletes through the work we do, while also offering our knowledge and expertise to help them improve.
“We can speak to keen swimmers on a one on one basis and direct them to the right services to meet their needs, and talk about anything new we have on offer. This is our third year at the Tri Expo; and over the last two, we have been able to talk to people and share their enthusiasm for the sport we love.
“It is very gratifying to know that we have helped them to improve, or offered an opportunity for them to find out how to improve.”
The team at Swim England offers a free Just Swim membership that offers advice from experts, discounts on TYR swimwear, access to challenge event discounts and more.
Sharon Lock added “We will also have a coaches corner on the day where you can ask our experienced coach Johnathan Preston any questions you may have. Jonathon has many years of experience coaching both children and adults to the highest levels, as well as educating our next generation of coaches. Whether you want advice on your own training, on stroke, technique, nutrition or competitions, Johnathan is passionate about swimming and will be ready and waiting for your questions.”
The 2018 Tri Expo consumer show will once again have the support of national governing bodies, Swim England, British Triathlon and British Cycling. Other partners in the show include Cycleguard/Triathlonguard, Xtra Mile Events, Outdoor Swimmer and USwim. New for 2018 will be a ‘Club Hub’ where visitors can freely talk to clubs in their area and find out how a club can help them improve and keep motivated in training and racing.
