A Warm Welcome to Walden Tri !
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our great club !
We are a club for athletes who train and compete in a variety of multisport activities including; Triathlon, Duathlon, Road Cycling and Running.
Formed in 2000, WaldenTRI has rapidly grown to over 100 athletes, offering the most comprehensive training programme in the local region from our Saffron Walden base. Our members are of all ages and abilities, from novices to GB age-group qualifiers and Sprint distance athletes to seasoned Ironmen. Many compete in triathlons however others use the club to focus on a particular discipline or just to meet likeminded sporty people! You will find our members and coaches very welcoming and always extremely enthusiastic. We hold weekly training sessions throughout the year covering Cycling, Running & Swimming as well as Triathlon transition. In May we have our hugely popular Saffron Walden Triathlon, an ideal 1st triathlon with the swimming leg taking place in the pool.
We also hold regular social events from Summer BBQs to social evenings at Bicicletta . Our members will often arrange adhoc cycling, running or swimming get togethers in and around the fantastic local area we live in.
We look forward to welcoming you to WaldenTRI !
