We pride ourselves on the range of ability throughout the club, from elite athletes to people who have never done a Triathlon before. The club was founded in 2011 and membership has grown to over 80 members last year. Despite being a growing club, we are incredibly friendly and open to everyone of all abilities. We aim to ensure that all training sessions are fun while developing our members to improve their fitness and helping them to achieve personal goals ranging from training for an Ironman to a new 5km PB. We offer over seven weekly training sessions, each tailored to suit different levels of ability, and you will always be able to find other club members willing to join you for a run or a bike ride outside of training.
Although competing for the club is entirely optional, the many members that do find it a really fun and worthwhile experience, and use competition as a way of measuring their own progression without any pressure to perform.
The club has an extensive race calendar with events throughout the year from September to June with BUCS being the highlight of the season. We have an open policy for competitions where there is no selection process or minimum ability to compete for the uni, only your desire to race! In addition to Triathlons, the club competes in Aquathlons and Duathlons as well as races in the individual sports: Swimming, Cycling and Running.
Aside from the completions, the club also runs a large number of socials and events outside of the normal training schedule. Socials are aimed at everyone with a mix ranging from dinners to quiet catch ups down the pub to crazy fancy dress nights. Other events include one off Beach Training sessions at Dawlish that were a huge success last year, training at the 50m Pool at Kelly College and Open Water Swimming Sessions.
