Fitness and Kit Considerations
Don't think that you have to be fantastically fit to join us - we have members of all abilities! As a minimum however you should be able to do each of the 3 triathlon disciplines - swim, cycle and run - for 5 minutes without stopping, and not suffer from any condition that may risk injury or accident when swimming, cycling or running. We do have some basic requirements if you intend participating in our coached swimming sessions, please see training for further information.
Kit requirements are a minimum of a swimming costume, decent running shoes and a road-worthy bike with a safety helmet. We operate a strict "no lid no ride" rule so you will not be allowed to take part in our cycling session without a helmet.
A range of club kit - hoodies, training t-shirts, cycling gear, swim caps and of course trisuits - are available for purchase in the club shop.
