Members of North Bristol Triathlon Club at an open water swim session

By Ben Sweet of North Bristol Triathlon Club.

North Bristol Triathlon Club (NBTC) was formed in August 2014 to motivate and empower people of all fitness levels to compete in triathlons. Both novice and experienced triathletes and multi-sport athletes are welcome!

We currently have 60+ members from all over the Bristol and surrounding areas, at all experience levels from those training to complete their first ever triathlon or multi-sport event, all the way up to experienced Ironmen and GB level athletes.

We have a number of training sessions (both coached and social) throughout the week around the north Bristol and Yate areas. These include swims (pool in the winter and open water in the summer), bike rides of various distances and speeds, various distance runs, as well as strength and conditioning training.

NBTC has also hosted a number of successful novice multi-sport events as part of Triathlon England’s Go Tri initiative. Our next event will be a duathlon (run/bike/run) on 23rd August from Thornbury Rugby Club. This event is perfect for novice multi-sport and budding triathletes to try their hand at a friendly, low-key multi-sport event.

For details of this event or future events as well as lots of information about the club, please visit our website ( or our club Facebook page.
