A Brief History of TriStars Training
TriStars Training Ltd. is a Victoria-based triathlon training company established in 2004 by Carolyn Gebbie, and her husband Bob, who have been involved in the sport since 1999. What started as a fun way to get fit evolved into a full-time passion for these Nationally Certified Triathlon Coaches. TriStars Training Ltd. focuses on age-group athletes who want to train in one sport or in all three – swim, bike and run. The main goal is to train smart, train safely, and to have fun with a group of like-minded people – the TriStars Training Team.
In 2012, TriStars Training became the resident triathlon club at Saanich Commonwealth Place. TriStars runs programs for beginners through age-group champions from September – May each year. TriStars provides group coaching for all levels and offer both full and single sport programming through out the year.
In 2015, TriStars Coach Lindsey Millar took over the Head Coaching position after being coached and mentored by Carolyn Gebbie for several years. In September, 2016 Lindsey Millar purchased TriStars Training Ltd, and plans to build on the legacy created by its founders, Carolyn and Bob Gebbie.
During the summer months, TriStars can be found at Thetis Lake or Elk Lake with their Open Water Swim Group, or running and cycling at various locations around the Peninsula.
