Leicester Triathlon Club
Welcome to Leicester Triathlon club, a.k.a. "The Zebras". We formed in 1983 and currently have close to 300 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.
