University of Exeter Triathlon Club

We are a friendly club that offers a versatile training programme in the three disciplines of Triathlon, swimming, cycling and running – and we are proud to cater to both seasoned racers and newcomers alike. We have at least 6 training sessions a week (3 swimming, one spin session, one track session, circuit session and a group cycle) which vary from base training in the winter months to race and sprint preparation in the summer season – allowing our athletes to reach their full potentials at their meets. Whilst we concentrate as a team on the 3 BUCs races we compete in each academic year, the Duathlon in November, the Sprint Triathlon in May and the Standard Distance in June, we encourage our members to get involved in all types of competition, from local meets to more prestigious races such as the London ITU. Furthermore, when we’re not training, we pride ourselves on our welcoming socials and the support we offer to our teammates on and off the course. With three sports combined at an economical price, Triathlon is a great way to keep fit, meet new people and of course, compete in exhilarating races. We’d love you to contact us to find out more! The club is encouraging their members to participate in the Yellow Jersey University Triathlon Scholarship, it is an award for a UK student who can best demonstrate their passion for triathlon and a proactive desire to get more participants into the sport.
