Who are we?

Welcome to the North East’s friendliest Triathlon Club for athletes of all ages aged from 8 - 80! Whether you’re starting out or an old hand, our club has something to offer you. We offer both junior and adult training sessions and our membership spans all age groups and abilities.

We cater for everyone whatever your motivation: from novices interested in keeping fit and trying out the sport for the first time, to those training for competition (both amateur and elite). Our junior members gain inspiration from GB Age grade racers who regularly join us at the pool. Our adults support each other through training, regularly meeting for additional bike rides and open water swimming at Ellerton Lake.

Formed in 2014, the club has gone from strength to strength hosting the ever-popular annual Richmond Aquathon and Sprint Triathlon. Providing high-quality coaching in all aspects of triathlon (including open-water swimming at a top-class venue) we really cover it all! Expect to work hard, improve your performance, and most importantly have fun with like-minded folks. If you are interested in joining the club, either as an athlete or a volunteer, then please get in touch by emailing enquiries@richmondtriathlonclub.co.uk or clicking on the ‘request to join’ button.

Richmond Triathlon Club is fully affiliated to the British Triathlon Federation and was proud to be the first Triathlon Club in Yorkshire to be awarded the TriMark Club Bronze.
