As a family friendly club based in the North of Scotland, Triathlon Inverness welcomes all. If you are a multi-sporter or just interested in individual swim, bike or run discipline, our aim is to provide a fun and friendly environment that allows all members to reach their potential. Whatever your age or ability, our weekly sessions aim to enable your fitness, technique and skills to improve.
We are striving to create a supportive club environment to challenge yourself, meet new people, develop friendships and have fun.
Whatever your goal, we positively encourage participation in your chosen challenge and at our club events throughout the year.
How has your winter training been? Thats the question posed by our Vice chair Jenny in an honest an open reflection on her winter training experience this year below. Jenny is training for Celtman this year and her reflections are a reminder that we don't take on challenges because they are easy. Training around normal life can be a challenge and along the journey sometimes we sometimes need to step back, rest up more and let the body adapt. It's also proof that encouragement and support go along way. Thanks for sharing Jenny!
2018 was a fantastic year for the club rounded off in style with our annual and social awards night at the Inverness Rugby Club. In a year where the club won Triathlon Scotlands 'most welcoming club of the year' award and club membership topped 100; it was fitting that the end of year celebration attracted 70+ people for a night of games, food, drinks and fun awards.
While there is still plenty to do to develop the club I've been struck by the supportive spirit that members bring to our sessions and events. Being able to celebrate peoples journeys and achievements with so many was a great way to close the 2018 season. The social element of the club is something we are really looking to build on this year with more social runs/rides and events.
Local youngster Luke Williams was in fine form at the Scottish Standard Championships in Knockburn.
Some fantastic splits saw Luke exit the water first then produce a great bike and run leg, eventually holding on to take 3rd Overall Male and 1st Junior.
Well done Luke a fine effort!

A huge thank you from all of us at Triathlon Inverness for choosing to race at Nairn Triathlon this year. A breezy but fantastic day.
Congratulations to everyone who competed today. Especially all the first time triathletes made today. You are now officially triathletes!
Huge thank you to the events team and all our club volunteers for your hard work. You are all stars!
Check out the results link below and a link to some photos taken today (more to be added soon).
Hopefully see you all in 2019!
Can't swim, bike or run? Don't let that stop you doing a triathlon!
Lots of people put off joining the club or entering a triathlon because they don't feel they can't do the three disciplines or feel that they're just not fit enough to complete a triathlon. Well Sheree shows us that with hard work, grit and determination you can do a whole lot more than enter a triathlon.
At the end of July, Richard and Sarah headed out to Odense in Denmark for the World Multisport Festival which included a whole range of events such as an Aquathlon, Duathlon, Aquabike, CrossTri and the Long Distance event (among others). Sarah had qualified for the World Championship race the previous year and Richard had entered the open race (although is perfectly capable of qualifying for the world championships but chooses not to). Qualification to represent GB for long and middle distance events is by submitting a suitable qualifying time from an equivalent race. For shorter races you have to attend specific qualifying events. There are a few people in the club who have represented GB in the past and present and I'm sure there are plenty more who could meet the qualifying criteria if they wanted to! Feel free to come and chat to me if you want to know more about it!!!
