Welcome to The University Of Sheffield Triathlon Club

The University of Sheffield Triathlon Club is a friendly group of students whose main aim is to encourage and promote the sport of Triathlon in Sheffield to all abilities.

Still a relatively new club, we have been growing in numbers year on year and whether you are brand new to the sport, can’t swim or ride a bike, or been doing triathlon for years, we are a diverse group that caters for absolutely everyone! Our members are the friendliest people you will find, they are extremely welcoming and passionate about what we do and will help encourage you to really get into the sport. With coached sessions each week, we can support you in developing your technique ensuring safety in your training as well as guidance on how to train properly. With the peak district right on our doorstep, we have an amazing opportunity to cycle around some beautiful places.

‘But I don’t have a bike with me at University.’ Don’t worry, we have several club bikes that are there to be used by our members.

You will have to opportunity to take part in a variety of Duathlons, Aquathlons and Triathlons of differing distances throughout the year, including both BUCS and Varsity events! And of course, we have regular socials!

Still not sure if triathlon is for you? You can come to all of our training sessions for the first 2 weeks without paying membership to see how you find it.

There has never been a better time to join this club, full of the nicest people, that you will no doubt become amazing friends with, this is a great opportunity to get involved in an ever expanding sport. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, no matter how silly they may seem, we hope to see you all soon!
