Triathlon

Triathlon is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK.  The sport itself covers the three elements of swim, bike and run.  Putteridge SC has experienced triathletes coming from different backgrounds in regards to swimming. Swimmers (current and former) who have decided to take up triathlon and Triathletes looking to improve the swimming element

Putteridge SC offer tailored swimming programmes for its triathlete members that complement the bike and run training in their programme.  We are also offering guided bike rides on an ad hoc basis and group runs.

We have a number of coaches qualified in coaching triathlon with a further two members as level 1 tri coaches and a Swim Smooth Coach within the club.  We also have two further members taking the Level 1 qualification in 2015. The Club Strategy for Triathlete members is being reviewed at present (AUG 2015) where we are developing a complete Triathlete training that involves all 3 elements conclusively. During this process, Graeme Crowston will be undertaking a Triathlete Head Coaches Course.

We have a number of GB Age group triathletes at the club who can take advantage of swimming in a quality swim squad with coached sessions and lane time cheaper as members than if paying as they go.

Coach Graeme Crowston has also taken part in a Paratriathlon workshop put on by Triathlon England to ensure the club offers equal opportunities for Paratriathletes and athletes of all abilities.
