We have races to suit all ages as well as different levels of fitness and ability – whether you’re just dipping your toe in to test the waters of triathlon, or someone who has a fit lifestyle and enjoys the comraderie of training and racing against other like-minded people.

Our club prides itself on its relaxed, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t got the latest gear – all we want is for you to love this sport as much as we do! So grab your swimmers and a pair of goggles; dust off that old bike in the shed, and lace up your runners! Once you’ve experienced the fun of triathlon, you’ll be hooked!
