Torbay Tri Club Membership
At the 2019 AGM, it was agreed that the membership charge would be decreased for 1st Claim members and the cost to 2nd claim members would increase to the same amount – £30.
This is because we affiliated to UKA during 2018, so you can now compete in running events as a member of an affiliated club – Torbay Tri Club.
We recognise that some people who are currently members of other clubs may not wish to represent us in running events, but do want to compete in triathlons as a club member. Because there are significant benefits of being a Tri Club member – as outlined below – we felt it was reasonable to have no differential in costs or benefits, whether or not you chose to be 1st or 2nd claim.
Membership is now open and the revamped Membership Form can be found here…….
The Torbay Tri Club membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March and we are now accepting membership renewals and/or new members to join.
