Welcome to the Loughborough Triathlon website.
Loughborough Triathlon is team of triathletes that train together and compete AS A TEAM. We compete in BUCS competitions, with duathlon, sprint and standard distance races contested each season. In the past 2 seasons we have had 9 podium placings in these competitions. We also race in British Triathlons’ National Super Series Races , and had Great Britain representatives at last year’s European and World Championships, World Student Games and World Championship Series events.
I have been in Loughborough since 2005 firstly with British Triathlon, and since 2008, Loughborough University as the High Performance Coach. With experience as Coach to British teams at all levels from youth to senior at European and World Championships I have been head coach for the past 2 World Student Games Triathlons’
We share the World Class facilities on campus with numerous world Champions and World Record holders in the pool and on the track.
Loughborough Triathlon is a High Performance Squad is for those that show real commitment to succeeding in triathlon. There is a limit to the number of athletes in this squad in order to give the individual attention we believe is paramount to realize potential. Loughborough University is also British Triathlons’ National Performance Centre. We run alongside and interact with the Federation’s World Class and TriGold programmes.
Alongside the performance squads there is also a student club, which has grown to 85 members. The club caters for a wide range of abilities from novices through to world age group level. With 6 structured swim sessions and numerous bike and run sessions organised each week, there is ample opportunity to utilise the world class facilities available. This creates a fantastic environment to enjoy sport competitively and socially, whilst in higher education.
Have a look around our website, check out where we will be racing over the coming months, and I hope you get a feel for the fun and enjoyment we get from this great sport!
At Loughborough University we are proud to combine world leading education with sport. The University also has a partnership with Loughborough College, which provides several Foundation Degree programmes in a range of sport related subjects.
