Why Tri Nation Triathlon?

Whether you are just starting out in triathlon or have been training for many years our training sessions are suitable for you. We have a team of experienced coaches and that’s exactly what you’ll receive at our sessions – coaching! At Tri Nation Triathlon we follow a specific training structure set out by our head coach which varies over the season and is dependent on what event you are training for.

Often the training sessions will split into short and long course groups to allow for the different physical adaptations required for the different length events.

Our Training Sessions

Triathlon TimetableTo make improvements, enjoy training and to challenge yourself means the sessions you attend need to be more than just meeting people for a ride or run. Our training is set up to be your hard sessions of the week where you will often be pushed to go that little bit faster. You will also find you will work far harder in a like-minded group with a good coach then you would on your own. The weekly timetable is summarised below, weekend sessions vary and details are provided in the online calendar.
