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.
The festive season is fast approaching us and so to is this years Christmas Party. This years event will take place on Saturday 1st December, 6:30pm, at The North Star Pub opposite Maindy Pool. For new or unaware members of Cardiff Tri - we ALWAYS have a fancy dress theme. This years theme will be decided at the Skittles event on October 27th (notice the plug here).
The evening will follow something like this: turn up at 6-6:30pm, drink or two to begin, sit down at 7:30pm for a three course Christmas meal and subsidised house wine (provided by club), afterwards move to sectioned off area of pub and announce club awards 9-9:30pm, followed by a live band through to midnight. Options can be reassessed at midnight for those wishing to continue the after party in town.
Please see menu provided below - this years feast offers a 'Traditional' at £16.95 and an 'Untraditional' at £24.95, both of which cater for vegetarians.

A £10 deposit per head is required. I will be collecting monies in the coming weeks. Please post interest below, in person, or via facebook group.
As was mentioned in an earlier post - we plan to have a club social on Saturday 27th October, 7pm, at The Halfway pub on Cathedral Road. The skittles hall is booked for us until midnight.
We just want to make clear this social is open to ALL members of Cardiff Tri. For those of you new to the club and contemplating a game of skittles - just do it! This is a perfect opportunity to mingle with fellow club members and start booking those IRONMAN Wales entries after several confident beers. In addition, if you have a friend or partner you'd like to bring along then please feel free - we may just convince them to join the club.
I have put a small reminder post on Facebook as the Manager at The Halfway wants to get a feel for numbers and food. Please make me aware of your attendance. I will also sort out a couple of big bowls of chips/crisps and other savory goods, however, there will likely be a small charge for this - £1-3 max.
As is tradition - Christmas party theme will be decided and a game of murder ball to finish.
Another reminder will be posted on the week of the event.
The provisional results from today's race are up on the results page, or here:
RUNNERS SHOULD MEET BY THE JUBORAJ AT ROATH PARK FOR A 6.30pm START.
All Welcome, session lasts roughly 1 hour.
For those doing the Cardiff Half now on the 14th October - fancy meeting up post race for a coffee and sandwich in town afterwards - shall we say The New York Deli for 11:00-11:15am? Gives allowances for those thinking of a two hour finish.
Let us know,
