About Us

We pride ourselves on being a large club, with a preciously guarded, small club feel. Our base, and the site of most of our activities, is Pugney’s Country Park. Our members cover the full range, from total beginner (even non-swimmers) to very experienced triathlete.

We provide training & coaching in swimming, biking and running. We also put on a full calendar of racing and social activities, for our members. Almost all our activities depend on the volunteering of members – we volunteer a little and take part in a lot.

We also have a “Transition Group”. These are triathletes, in their last year with the Junior Club, who are welcome to train and compete with the seniors. There’s loads of information on the website. Please have a good look round, and do get in touch if you have any questions.
