Farnham Triathlon Club caters for all ages and ability levels of triathlete in the Farnham and Aldershot area (North East Hampshire and West Surrey). We have over 200 members of whom over 25% are women and 15% are youth. We now have a wide variety of ages ranging from 8 to 60+. We aim to provide a safe, welcoming environment for the enjoyment of triathlon.
We have regular coached sessions consisting of swimming sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings as well as Sunday mornings. During the winter we have coached turbo training on a Thursday night. In the summer we have a coached cycle session on Thursday evenings at Blackbushe Kart Track. On Monday nights the club offer a coached running track session in partnership with Hart Road Runners at Aldershot Garrison Athletics Track. As a club member you will receive a regular weekly e-mail regarding all the training sessions taking place in the coming days.
We also have regular non-coached sessions such as long bike rides on Saturday mornings and occasional Sundays as well as other run and bike sessions. Few manage to go to all these sessions each week, but many of us are regulars to some of these sessions in a week.
Although we train in the three disciplines of swimming, cycling and running all year round, the main triathlon race season only lasts from April through to October. In this period, as well as racing triathlons, we have members taking part in road races (running), cycle time-trials, cycle road races as well as triathlon relay races.
In the 'off season' we convert to racing in a number of related sports such as road and cross-country running (taking part in a local Sunday league), mountain biking, duathlons (run-bike-run) and aquathlons (swim-run).
