CLUB HISTORY and Members’ Achievements
Stafford Triathlon Club was founded in 2005 by a group of four local athletes all of whom shared a mutual interest in the sport and felt that they wanted to share that enthusiasm with others. The club has gone from strength to strength, producing professional athletes competing on the international stage.
The club has a very diverse flavour with members competing in a wide range of events. These not only includes triathlons, from sprint to Ironman distance but also duathlons, aquathlons and also, not forgetting, individual swimming, biking and running races. As the traditional summer races come to an end, our club members enjoy bike and run cross country events as well as Adventure Racing.
Many of our members have competed in events all over the Globe including those that have qualified to race and gained international honours in Triathlon and Duathlon at all age groups, the legendary IRONMAN KONA to European and World Championships.
Closer to home, Stafford Tri witnesses large numbers of its members representing the club and supporting local competitions across the region, for example in Derby and Shrewsbury.
The sport has also proven a hit with the younger generation and such has been the interest from young persons in taking part that in recent years Stafford Tri opened its Junior Club and now invests in supporting our younger generations in accessing and competing in a whole range of events.
In short Stafford Triathlon members, young and old are competing either seriously or just for fun in events throughout the year. Regardless of your motivation for taking part, all our members benefit from the friendly encouragement, enthusiasm, coaching resources and a wealth of experience provided by their fellow club members.
