The University of Toronto Triathlon Club is open to students, alumni, faculty and community members of the U of T Athletic Centre who are 18 years and older (exceptions are made for current U of T students who are 17). We welcome athletes of all abilities from experienced triathletes to those new to the sport. The club operates year round, offering professionally coached swim and run workouts and member-led bike/spin workouts.
The U of T Tri Club is suitable for a range of current and aspiring triathletes (18yrs+), which include:
- Recreational Athletes – those who are new to endurance sports and are primarily interested in triathlon training to get back in shape.
- Short Course Athletes – those who have some experience in endurance sports and are primarily interested in competing in Sprint and Olympic distance triathlons/duathlons or 5k/10k running races
- Long Course Athletes – those who have some experience in endurance sports and are primarily interested in competing in Long Course to Ironman distance triathlons or half-marathon/marathon running races.
Beginners please note: You must be able to swim 300m continuous before you attend the swim workouts. If you are new to swimming, the AC offers various swim classes to get you started.
