Bearbrook Running club has been established for well over 20 years now and far from being a one trick club many of the 200 strong Bearbrook runners are already well into their multi sport with many excellent and admirable results over the years. From absolute beginners through to super experienced Ironmen and women who have worn the illustrious UK vest.
As of the 2013 AGM Bearbrook made it official and affiliated ourselves to British Triathlon so can train insured, but more importantly it gives us permission to talk tri and really kick start own own club.
Anyone who is a member of Bearbrook Running club is automatically a member of the tri club.
The main benefits are the potential to learn, train, improve and crucially enjoy all that the Triathlon world has to offer.
The below training plan is fairly concrete however there are ad hoc sessions which are regularly organised via facebook so please do request access to be a member of that group so you're fully in the loop.
This is the beauty of Bearbrook Triathlon Club - whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned pro the link with Bearbrook Running Club ensures that there should be a session or 5 every week that should cater for your needs by offering a challenge and some enjoyment. Please look at the training page for more details on the planned runs.
During summer we organise various ad hoc group rides so keep your eyes peeled on Facebook and feel free to sew who's up for joining you on or off road!
One swim set a week is uploaded to the clubs Facebook page as well as the clubs website training page. The sets change weekly and include Drills, Endurance and Mixed Intervals.
Sarah who is our swim leader swims regularly at a local pool, upon request she is more than happy to offer advice and tips.
Regular lake swims are organised ad-hoc through Facebook in the summer.
