photos thanks to 

Members of Groups S, 1, 2, F, and C train on Saturday mornings and we also offer a weekly swim session to members of Groups F and C as set out below.

Saturday Training

Due to the closure of Walden School in July 2017 we are no longer able to train at these facilities.

We are currently training at Wimbish barracks (Directions) as our main traning ground.  Training will be a combination of bike & run as we currently have no access to a pool.  We recommend all members join a local swimming club such as Seals.  

There are 5 training groups::

Group Born in Race Category Training times
Group S 2010 TriStart 8.30am to 9.30am
Group 1 2008 or 2009 Tristar 1 8.30am to 10.30am
Group 2 2006 or 2007 Tristar 2 8.30am to 10.30am 
Group F and Group C 2000 to 2005 Tristar 3 Youth and Junior 8.30am to 10.30am

Wimbish barracks (Directions). This provides an excellent opportunity to cycle on tarmac or off road on mountain bikes in a safe car free environment where group riding can be coached and cornering skills practiced. Each group is lead by a team of coaches and a different discipline is done in each hour. You can see the activities for each group this term by clicking on the groups names or using the menu above.
