You don’t have to be a triathlete to join, but you do have to be able to swim a couple of lengths of the pool (front crawl preferably), run a minimum of 2km and be happy to go out for rides for a minimum of an hour. In our training sessions we can help you increase that couple of lengths to a race distance, 2k to 5k or 10k, one hour on the bike to three hours. We all know that nobody starts out as an expert triathlete, we’re there to help you find the easiest, most enjoyable path to being a good athlete and enjoying the sport.
All sessions will accommodate the plethora of abilities that make up any sports club. In fact, if you are interested in only one or two of the disciplines we’ll still be more than happy to have you join us.
If you’re not sure or are a little nervous about the sessions or triathlons in general, then please contact us anyway and we’ll be able to help get you started. We’re here to encourage everyone who wants to give triathlon a go. Come and try a session with us before you commit to membership, just drop us an email to say which session, so that we can let the coach/leader of the session know to expect you.
It costs £35 per year to join and that gives you unlimited support, advice and a cheering squad at local races, access to our club kit, Facebook page, social occasions and a range of coached training sessions – some free to members, some at a low cost. That’s cheaper than a race entry for a whole lot of support all year! If more than one member of a family join then you get a reduced fee.
