TAMAR TROTTERS TRIATHLON

FREE TO ALL CLUB MEMBERS FOR 2022 to celebrate our 1st year

We are very excited this year to affiliate to British Triathlon.

This means that as a Tamar Trotters member you can get money off your British Triathlon Membership – which itself comes with many benefits.

Please click for details https://www.britishtriathlon.org/

You will also find our club details are now on the British Triathlon website, as well as information about events.

We have around 36 club members that partcipate in Triathlon/multisport events and even more that enjoy cycling or swimming with these numbers growing all the time. We have already had some great results too with three athletes qualifying for World Championship Events and several athletes winning age group categories in local events.

Obviously this area of the club is very much in it’s infancy but we have some very enthusiatic individuals who between them have huge amounts of experience and knowledge that they are able to share with anyone who is interested in Triathlon or Swimming or Cycling and it is our aim to have a qualified Triathlon Coach within the next year. Until this time all sessions will be lead by an experienced leader rather than being coached sessions.
