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. DUTri is a student run sports club affiliated with Team Durham and British Triathlon. We build on the principle that those with the interest and determination to get involved should do so.

We support members through the transition from absolute beginners to experienced, seasoned athletes. We have an inclusive, friendly yet competitive atmosphere which allows people to learn from others and develop to the best of their ability. The impressive progression that our past and present members have made is confirmation of the merits of this approach.

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.

Our training takes place in a variety of locations and takes advantage of the facilities and fantastic countryside in and around Durham. 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 follow weekly training plans and have a dedicated swim coach and strength and conditioning coach.
