Hereford Triathlon Club Membership
Hereford Triathlon Club is a well organised and friendly club with more than 250 members who range from beginner to veteran. Our members come to us from across Herefordshire and the Welsh borders. In 2021 we celebrate our 33rd birthday.
We are run entirely by volunteers. All of our coaches, committee members and marshals give up their time free of charge. We ask that all club members help the club to continue to flourish by marshalling at one of our events held during normal years. In 2021 we will be holding one event - the triathlon on July 4th at Leominster Leisure Centre.
Hereford’s very first Triathlon took place in 1987 from the Leisure pool before an official club was set up. The first tri was a sprint distance event and one of the first to be held in the region. This inspired several sporting enthusiasts to meet up and in 1988 Hereford Tri Club was officially launched. We are affiliated to Triathlon England and the Cycling Time Trials association.
To this day, the club's ethos remains the same - we're a group of like-minded people who want to encourage anybody to enjoy training and competing in triathlon, regardless of ability, age, size or shape. We're proud to be still known as a friendly bunch who run well organised races.
We welcome new members of all abilities, shapes and sizes. To take part in our swimming sessions you are required to be able to swim 400m front crawl. There is no speed requirement. If you’ve got any questions then please just get in touch via the email button.
We cater for adults from 16 years and upwards (and upwards, there's no upper limit!) We work closely with our friends at Ludlow Junior Triathlon Club who hold sessions regularly in Herefordshire. If you're aged from 7 to 16 and are interested in taking up triathlon please contact us and we can put you in touch with them.
If you're interested in joining us then why not get in touch and try out a session first? If you like us then just apply here.
Happy training and racing
