Who Are We?

The BTF affiliated triathlon section of the club (the Wetherby RaTs – Runners and Triathletes) has been established since 2010 and currently has around 30 active members. Some members are first time triathletes, often converting from a running background building their swim and bike skills and fitness to compete on the local race scene. Some members simply choose to add cycling into their overall fitness regime. There are also more experienced triathletes competing on national level with some representing the region and GB in age group categories. Overall there is good support, company and healthy competition for the full ability range of potential new members.

The RaTs are a small section but known for our friendly approach and offer a good range of training opportunities relative to our size and roots as a running club. Our running options are varied and well coached as you would expect of a running club. Cycling includes regular time trialling on local roads, longer weekend rides and occasional sportives. As for swimming we swim at Wetherby pool in Masters lane sessions with coached sessions coming soon. All arrangements for training are made via a members only private forum but below is an overview of key days and sessions.
