The club is open to everyone and anyone who wants to get involved in the multi-sport disciplines that make up triathlon. We encourage memberships from beginners through to experienced competitive athletes alike and we boast a membership and coaching team with a strong male/female balance and the senior age range is currently from 18 to 70+. Our club prides itself on its open and inclusive culture and is set up to cater for everyone and anyone, from the novice starting out on their triathlon / multi-sport journey through to GB Age Group and Ironman World Champion athletes.
As a club we train for and compete regularly in all distances and variations of triathlon, and the many other multi-sport activities. In addition to having Annual Club Championships at some of the best races in the UK, we take part in novice focused triathlons and our training is set up to coach swimming, cycling and running skills at all levels.
HTC have been the County Champions on a number of occasions for Sprint and Standard Olympic Distance, and we are always looking to defend the title. HTC won the IRONMAN Tri Club UK championships in 2015. We have a strong GB age group team in all distances and across the different multi-sport disciplines and are proud to say that pro athletes, Lucy Charles-Barclay and Reece Charles-Barclay began their triathlon careers with HTC. So we really can accommodate everyone.
Our training is focussed on supporting athletes across all three of the triathlon disciplines and we aim to help you develop knowledge & confidence and progress your capabilities to achieve new goals and PBs. We recognise that our members have other commitments as part of their work life balance and that not every member can take advantage of the full training offering that we deliver as a club. We therefore offer an alternative non-swim / duathlon membership option that is outlined on our membership page.
Sessions run throughout the week, with access to plenty of training and a very active social and training scene outside of the set sessions. Sessions are delivered by qualified and experienced coaches. Pool based swimming sessions are run throughout the year on Wednesday and Friday evenings (available to those with full membership). Additional open water sessions are run through the summer on Tuesday evenings for a small additional cost to all members. Run training takes place on Monday and Thursday evenings and cycling training is on Saturday mornings (some weeks we swap to a Sunday with prior notice).
We’d love for you to take advantage of a free 2 week trial with HTC to help you decided how we can best support your triathlon training needs. Please complete some basic information on our new member request form page and we'll make arrangements for you to attend the sessions that interest you. NB. Our new member intake is at the beginning of every month.
