Welcome to South London Harriers Triathlon Club

South London Harriers Triathlon Club

South London Harriers Triathlon Club was founded in 2003 to enable triathletes and other multisport athletes living around Croydon and east Surrey to enjoy triathlon and work towards their goals in a friendly, encouraging club environment.  As a section of South London Harriers that is open to all members of the running club, we also aim to offer runners within the club the chance to try out triathlon, duathlon and aquathlon. 

We are open to members of all abilities and specialisms, from those taking part in multisport for the first time, through athletes who concentrate on two of the three disciplines, and sprint triathletes, to GB age groupers and Kona Ironmen.  

We're based in Coulsdon, right on the southern edge of Greater London, with easy access to great running and cycling countryside, a newly opened floodlit running track, and a clubhouse and bar, open two evenings a week.

Currently we have around 70 members training with us, and offer two open water and one coached pool swim sessions a week, a large and popular track running session and two road running sessions a week, and access to the large Addiscombe cycle club rides. In the winter we replace the open water swims with a second coached pool session, plus we enter a cross-country race nearly every weekend.

We offer a number of one-off events during the year including a popular training day in April and October, a series of club challenges and social events and a series of GO TRI aquathlons for newcomers to triathlon during the summer.

The club has a strong record of supporting members in their triathlon goals, bringing through new triathletes to become age-groupers and Ironmen.  In September 2015 a group of eight club members travelled together to complete Ironman Mallorca and this year twelve will be taking on the Vitruvian half iron distance race in September.  We are bringing on a number of members towards representing Great Britain or Ireland in age-group international races during the year.  Meanwhile we are also enjoying meeting new members starting off on their triathlon adventure and giving it a try.
