Whilst many of our members aspire to undertake Triathlons, for others this is not their main activity as they just enjoy the variety of sports that we support. In a recent survey, Club Members described us in 4 words – Friendly, Supportive, Inclusive and Fun. Our members have a huge range of abilities with their ‘Greatest Achievements’ ranging from completing a 5km run, maintaining a regular training programme, undertaking an Ironman and through to representing their country in an International Age Group Triathlon.


Our Club Purpose is ‘To build a safe and supportive community for members to swim, bike and run in Torbay. We will support all members to achieve their personal goals in any or all of our 3 sports by providing group training sessions with fully-qualified coaches to suit all abilities.’


We have 4 Core Values:

Community – We support and celebrate members achievements, from first triathlons through to representing their country.

Inclusive – We offer training opportunities for all abilities, providing a range of swimming, cycling and running sessions.

Professional – We invest in our coaches and run/bike leaders to provide the best training for all members.

Local – We endeavour to support Torbay through relationships with other organisations, improving infrastructure and volunteering.

Club Information

A little message from the Torbay Tri Club Chairman – FRANK REAY

Welcome to Torbay Tri! 

We really are a Triathlon Club with a difference. We pride ourselves on the huge variety of our members and ensure that everyone is made welcome and supported. We focus on personal improvement in any or all of the 3 triathlon sports.

To ensure we are inclusive we have a low membership fee, free training sessions (wherever possible) and ‘Member Only’ events. Alongside this we have fully trained coaches and bike/run leaders to lead our many varied training sessions. Finally, we actively support our local community via provision of sea swim buoys, coastal litter picking, Parkrun volunteering, Food Bank runs etc.

We are quite simply blessed in the Torbay area with the sea on our doorstep, use of the 1500m Velopark, indoor swimming pools and many scenic running routes.

Our members range from 18 to 70+ years old (unfortunately we do not offer a Junior section). We don’t take ourselves too seriously and have a number of social events throughout the year.

So whether you just want to improve your fitness or aspire to complete an Ironman then we can help you in your journey. You can join now or attend 3 running sessions before deciding. Contact us via this website or our public Facebook group and we will ensure you are made welcome.



'It’s great to be part of a club that not only pushes you to be the best you can be but also has a really friendly, supportive ethos. I have improved massively from the expert coaching and the high standard of team mates who help you achieve your goals. Although it’s an individual sport there is a real team ethos at Torbay Tri!'

'Arriving at the triathlon party late, I wish someone had invited me earlier. Finding a perfect work life balance is tricky, then you add that you’re going to triathlon... boom! Triathlon doesn’t build character, it reveals it. If you want the fun challenge, what are you waiting for? Join a club like Torbay Tri, they embrace all, coach and nurture the very beginner and pushes the boundaries competing at international level.'

'For me the club represents all the ‘F’s... Fitness, Fun and Friendships where I can access a fantastic varied coaching structure within a supportive group of like minded people. Come down, 'Tri' 😆 us out and most importantly bring cake!' 🍰
