ABOUT THE CLUB

Ex­eter Triathlon Club is a friendly triathlon club based in and around Ex­eter, which caters for age eight up­wards. It’s run by a group of en­thu­si­as­tic and ded­i­cated vol­un­teers, who wel­come and en­cour­age mem­bers of all abil­i­ties and ex­pe­ri­ence.

The club’s aim is to en­joy triathlon through­out the year with a reg­u­lar, qual­ity train­ing pro­gramme de­liv­ered by qual­i­fied pro­fes­sional coaches, as well as com­pe­ti­tions and so­cial events. The club is par­tic­u­larly proud of its ju­nior setup, which runs along­side the adults.

The club runs an an­nual aquathlon se­ries and the Exe Val­ley Triathlon, as well as par­tic­i­pates in the an­nual team re­lay cham­pi­onships in Not­ting­hamshire, in which the club placed third in 2016.
