Cardiff Triathletes

Cardiff Triathletes was formed in 1984 by a small group of people interested in the, then, new sport of triathlon.

The objectives of the club are to encourage and promote the sport of triathlon in the Cardiff and the surrounding area.

The club is affiliated to the British Triathlon Federation via Welsh Triathlon and individual members are encouraged to join these organisations.

Club news



Just a general reminder, with the clocks changing this weekend and the sky looking darker, if you're attending one of the club's outdoor training sessions (i.e. running, cycling) then please wear suitably bright and visible clothing.
I know black is slimming, but not as much as swimming, cycling and running and it's really important to be seen easily! Bright coloured kit is good, white stands out well in the dark, and fluorescent/reflectives are great for night training! Please don't turn up to running or cycling wearing all black clothing, drivers just don't notice you!
Lots of the usual online running/cycling shops have reasonably priced hi-vis stuff (I found some good deals on www.mandmdirect.com), and I'm sure Moti Cardiff are well stocked too!


Saturday cycle

As promised, I'll be cycling on Saturday, meet at Maindy track for a 9am departure.
Route is Cardiff-Newport (flats)- Magor (flats)-Wentwood-Usk (coffee and cake at the garden centre!)-Caerleon-Cardiff. Should be about 70 miles, flat to Magor, 1 climb over Wentwood then rolling home (with a tailwind, I think!).
Forecast looks dry and sunny, but cold, so layer up and don't forget the essentials: pump, 1-2 spare tubes, drink, food, phone, fully serviced bike!
See you then!

Meeting at the Juboraj for a 6.30pm start.



Please be advised that the time trial this Sunday will now begin at 9:30am (half an hour earlier than originally planned).

James and I will be there from 8:30am.


Mo-Running Cardiff

Hi all,

I'm probably going to do Movember again this year. Whilst trailing the internet for Mo ideas I stumbled upon this 10k run event being held in Bute Park, Cardiff, on Sunday 18th November @ 10am.


Anyone fancy entering? Post also on Facebook group.




Saturday rides

I'm hoping to be back on my bike next week and, as I have a pretty clear calendar for a while, I'm planning on doing a regular ride on Saturday mornings- starting Saturday 27th October.

We will meet, as normal, at Maindy leisure centre at 9am. The ride will typically be 3-4 hours (50-70 miles) at a moderate pace (i.e. not slow, but not racing either!). There may, or may not be, a coffee stop (depends on weather, route and attendance!). The routes are likely to include some hills- some challenging. This ride will not be suitable for beginners, but aimed at people who find the surges in the faster group ride a little tough to keep up with but who can confidently ride in a group and want a decent training ride.

Hope to have some company! :-)
