About us

York Triathlon Club is a multi-sport community club affiliated with Triathlon England.

 

Based in the beautiful and historic City of York, North Yorkshire, we cater for all ranges of ability for all ages 18 years and above. We don't currently have a Junior Section, although this is something the club may consider in the future.

 

Our club has a large number of BTF certified Triathlon Coaches, as well as a range of single-discipline specific fully-qualified coaches such as Running Coaches, Run and Ride Leaders, Spin Instructors and Personal Trainers.

 

We offer training sessions every day of the week, 50 weeks of the year, and boast a membership of over 200 athletes that come from all walks of life, and with all levels of ability.

 

YTC offers a friendly, supportive and encouraging environment for you to participate in the various disciplines of the sport, whether you are brand new to any or all of the disciplines or are an experienced athlete competing for Team GB's Age Group Squad.
