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.
Exeter Triathlon Club trains in the local Exeter area, with five pool-based swimming sessions per week at various locations. This is in addition to two sessions for juniors and one sea-based open-water swim session per week during the summer in Teignmouth.
The club operates trackbased running sessions out of Exeter Arena for both adults and junior members, while rides are held at the weekend with the meeting point at AS Watersports.
