Triathlon Redditch was formed by a group of like-minded individuals in 2015. What started as a small group of people enjoying regularly, swimming, cycling and running turned into a club as it is now with over 60 members.
The core team members felt that there was a gap in the local area for a triathlon club to be set up, to primarily get new people into the sport, but to also develop the talent that already exists in all three disciplines within the club.
We have a BTF Level 1 coach as well as a BTF Level 2 coach, along with many ride and run leaders ensuring we are able to cater for large groups and differing levels of ability.
We also have 2-3 dedicated swim coaches who assists all Triathletes, improving techniques of the good and helping the novices.
