Welcome to the world of triathlon, where people run without socks (or underwear).
We have a number of members regularly taking part in triathlons from sprint distance through to full long course/Ironman distance.
We are also very proud to not only have many members having completed Ironman UK at Bolton but to volunteer at race at transition, bag drop and on the feed stations. These volunteer days are really good fun and rewarding for all involved.
Our Triathlon Section is captained by Gary Firth who also assists at Monday night training sessions as well as his role with triathlon.
Triathlon Championships 2021
As the 2021 season was heavily disrupted, the best 2 races (calculated from age group position percentile) qualify for the total points score as well as the base points for completing an event (Sprint – 10; Olympic/Standard – 20; Middle Distance/Half Ironman – 50; Long Course/Full Ironman – 100). The championships will be on a similar scoring for the 2022 season with the best 3 races being considered for championship points. The rules will be updated for the 2023 season however, with specified club races with added bonus points for completion of these events. Please look out for these events as you will need to book them in advance.
