Welcome to Leicester Triathlon club, a.k.a. "The Zebras". We formed in 1983 and currently have close to 200 members who range from complete novices to multiple Ironman finishers and Great Britain age group team athletes. We are a friendly club and always welcome new members to train, race and enjoy a drink or two. Why not come down and meet us to train and chat with like-minded people. Leicester Triathlon Club prides in it's duty of care towards its members with a high quality and efficient level of service. The club now has a separate thriving Junior section which is very popular. For more details see the Junior tab at the top of the club webpage.
Our members can also provide advice, support and encouragement and we have several qualified coaches.
The club organises two weekly open water swim sessions for its members only, (Wednesday evenings 18.30-20.00 & Saturday mornings 7.45-9.15), from May through to October at Watermead Country Park near Syston (more info on the swimming page-please read). We are once again offering Lake Only Membership, this is priced at £15 but this will not give you access to any of the other sessions that we run as a club.
We run a swim session on Thursday evenings (there is a choice of a technique or endurance session which run side by side) at DMU from 2100-2200hrs, plus a swim session at Enderby Leisure Centre on a Wednesday evening from 2000-2100hrs.
NB - to join in & benefit from our swimming sessions & coaching you need to be able to swim front crawl/freestyle comfortably for 4 lengths of a 25m pool (i.e a 100m continuous swim).
Our spinning session runs on a Monday evening from October to March at Enderby Leisure centre. Book by the club website.
If Covid restrictions allow, the club hopes to run an hour long yoga session at Braunstone Leisure Centre on Thursday evening starting after our swimming session.
Each of the above sessions costs £5, but LTC offers session cards as follows:
Bronze Card - 11 coached swim sessions, £50
The running session every week is a a track session on Tuesday evening at Saffron Lane at 1900hr.
Bike rides and other runs are organised regularly amongst members.
The Braunstone Parkrun takes place every Saturday at 9am. As a group Leicester Triathlon Club are encouraging our members to take part on the first Saturday of every month. You need to register first and take a printed copy of your barcode along with you. See www.parkrun.org.uk/braunstone/

It is a good way to measure your own personal progress as well as spend some time with LTC buddies.
We head off to the Leisure Centre for snacks afterwards.
