Durham University Triathlon Club is entering its ninth year of operation, and since our inception in 2007 we’ve grown from just 4 athletes to over 60. Our aim as an all-inclusive club is to be accessible to newcomers to the sport, yet also offer high-level training to more seasoned athletes.

Over the past few years we have embraced the influx of athletes looking to get involved with a sport exploding in popularity, providing many with their first taste of triathlon competition. Simultaneously we have built up a strong programme of development for experienced triathletes, with our Performance Squad members achieving great success in BUCS and other competitions.

We maintain good relations with other sports clubs within the university, which often benefits both sides. In addition, we are closely connected with the local triathlon club, with whom we train and socialise. Our BUCS competition is centred around the Duathlon, Sprint distance triathlon and Olympic distance triathlon championship events, which are open to all members.

Our training takes place in a variety of locations and takes advantage of the facilities and fantastic countryside here. We swim in the local 8 lane, 25m pool, run on the university track at Maiden Castle and the local trails, and ride in the beautiful rolling North East landscape. We also run strength and conditioning sessions in the university gyms, and we currently have dedicated swimming and running coaches as well as our main coach providing the club’s training programme.
