The triathlon section was formed in 1987 and since those early days, our numbers have gone from strength to strength.
For a relatively small club we have produced a number of UK age group triathletes and duathletes over the years and have had numerous club members compete at the World Championships for triathlon and duathlon. Our members compete in all distances from Sprint Distance to Ironman and we have a wide range of abilities.
We regularly compete in location duathlon and aquathlon events at the nearby lakes, which is a great introduction to multi-sport events and to add to your triathlon training!
We try and cater for all standards of athlete, so even if you are new to triathlon you would be more than welcome to join us, in fact, why not come along for a three week trial period and see what you think? We are serious about our sport and train correctly but it has to be fun and enjoyable as well.
