TRI247 Workout Series: Club Relays Madness!
Group Workout
Every Wednesday at 7pm UK-time, Tri247 present a triathlon focused workout brought to you by a guest 'coach.' This will include sessions by pro triathletes, coaches and notable characters associated with the sport.

The workouts are about 60 minutes long and designed to add variety and interest to your weekly training schedule over the Winter.


This workout is inspired by the Club Relays, a 4-person event which has been part of the fabric of the UK Triathlon scene for almost three decades. With the event – another sell out – coming up in just over two weeks time, it seemed appropriate to base a session connected to it. The ‘Madness’ element of the name comes from the tagline of the race, which is "Organised Chaos…"

This week’s session is set by TRI247 Editor, John Levison.

Zwifters line up in the starting area just like a normal event and once the event starts, workout mode begins. Everyone stays together regardless of power output. That's right, if you're outputting 100W and another Zwifter is outputting 400W you will stay in exactly the same position relative to each other. Only if you stop pedaling and fall 6 meters behind the group will the rubber-banding stop.


We highly recommend doing one of the FTP tests as the estimated FTP can be inaccurate and make the difficulty level of the workouts too high for your current fitness level.
