About the Club

Our sessions are designed for all levels from those new to all three disciplines of triathlons to those wanting to qualify for a GB age group place.

Tri-Rivington prides itself in the high quality of coaching we provide our members whatever their gender, experience, fitness or goals are. Many of our members joined us with very little experience in one or more of the triathlon disciplines and have successfully achieved their goals. In fact we have had many who were unable to swim in September and crossed the Ironman UK finishing line the following July.

We also have many very experienced members in all three disciplines who are always looking for ways to further improve their finishing times or join those members who are GB age group qualifiers.

You don’t have to be a triathlete to join us – We also have many members who want to be coached for duathlons, cycling, running or swimming events.

How can you join us?

Join our closed club Facebook page and come along to a couple of coaching sessions to see if we are the club for you. We are based at David Lloyd Bolton but you don’t have to be a member of David Lloyd.
