Organiser's Description


Welcome to the Leicester Triathlon club (also known as the Zebras).


We are a friendly triathlon club based in Leicester welcoming all abilities. In 2023 as a club we competed in every Triathlon distance from super sprint to Ironman. We saw first time triathletes join the club, along with the return of former members. We have age group qualifiers in both the European and World Triathlon championships, and last year saw a club member compete in the World Triathlon Championships age group.



As a collective there isn't much we don’t know about Triathlon, knowledge we are more than happy to share, together with the war stories that led to us learning in the first place! And if that isn’t enough to inspire you to join us in 2024, our swim coach (Craig Twigg) is a former professional triathlete in the ironman and half ironman distances - so what we don’t know about Triathlon he will!


For those who are existing members you will know most of what is detailed below but if your new to the club or furthermore new to the sport completely then you will find the below useful in understanding what the club offers and when. We are extremely proud that you chose our club to enter the triathlon world!


Full Membership is just £40 annually (This grants access to all sessions offered by the club)


Full (concessionary) Membership is just £25 annually. (Over 60 years, 16 or 17 years of age, aged 18 or over and in full time education, or in receipt of unemployment benefit and/ or income support).


Lake only membership is just £20 annually (This is for our summer open water sessions only).



Tuesday Track running sessions, 7pm at Saffron Lane Track, ​£5 per session with Active Leicester card

​Our track sessions will help prepare you for road races, winter XC, triathlons and park runs by doing what is hardest to do on your own-developing your speed through regular weekly group interval training. One of the best ways to meet fellow club members and plot your next races together after a day of graft.


Wednesday Hill rep running session, Bradgate Park, Free

This session is a social run organised on an adhoc basis, dependent on availability and interest, via our Facebook group. Hill reps at Bradgate Park are a great way to build running strength. Make sure you join our Facebook group for updates on the latest session.


Thursday Swim training with coach Craig Twigg,  8pm - 9pm at Braunstone Leisure Centre, £6 per session

Our weekly coached sessions will help you improve your endurance and technique in the water. We have three lanes covering a range of speeds and abilities with sessions designed to improve not only your speed and technique but also consider deep water starts, and moving into transition from the swim in a triathlon event. IMPORTANT; you need to be able to swim front crawl/freestyle comfortably for 4 lengths of a 25m pool (100m continuous swim).


Open water swimming at King Lear Lake, Wednesday evenings 6:30pm - 8pm and Saturday mornings, 8am - 9:30am, £2 per session

These twice weekly open water sessions boast the most beautiful outdoor swimming venue in Leicestershire. Whether you are there to enjoy a dip or get that essential open water practice in for your next event, these friendly and well organised sessions are perfect! New for 2024 will be regular (scheduled) open water swim coaching with our very own swim coach (Helen Atton) who you may have seen coaching for Leicester masters swimming. She will be there to give advice and feedback on all things to do with open water swimming.


Mallory park Tri Sessions (we get a discounted rate of £6 - should be £8)

As a club we run a handful of these sessions during the season (May - September) on a Monday 6pm - 8:30pm. They are for all abilities and are focused more on the technical side of triathlons rather than the fitness/ endurance required to complete one. The sessions will include practicing mass starts, swim sighting, swimming amongst a group and transitions.



We are affiliated to the British Triathlon Federation (BTF), England Athletics (EA), Cycling Time trials, Derby runner cross country league, and the Leicester road running league (LRRL) so there is plenty of chance to compete for the club whilst having fun amongst like-minded people..


Additionally there are certain financial perks including discounted BTF individual membership, discounts at various local stores and also Active training world events (including our Mallory training sessions).


Once you have paid your membership members are added to the club app (TEAMO) where we arrange and pay for training sessions, chat and arrange social evenings together with adhoc bike rides and runs all of which inevitably involves a pub and/ or a café.


For a more in depth look at our club and its members and all that goes on aswell as achieved please visit our website and join our facebook group


We hope you join us for what we hope to be an awesome 2024 season of all things Triathlon.
