About Lisburn Triathlon Club
Lisburn Triathlon Club was born at the end of September 2012 . Numbers have risen quickly to 75 plus members.
It's a friendly club where we share plenty of laughs and the occasional ribbing. This family atmosphere is reflected at events where we always get together and enjoy a bit of craic before the race, and generally meet up afterwards for a bite to eat and compare stories! Even when athletes are competing away, you can be assured there's plenty of encouragement given via Facebook before, during and after the event.
We have athletes of all levels, racing every distance there is in the sport, and with varying degrees of experience.
2017 has seen several Lisburn Triathlon Club athletes win and podium placing in the top 3 of numerous events throughout Ireland, a couple qualified in their age group for Ireland, one for the commonwealth games, one for Kona Ironman world championships and every single member that has competed has achieved PBs across the board.
We have had quite a number of firsts this year too with several members completing their first races across all distances- Sprint, Olympic, 70.3 and Ironman.
Looking forward to the future, we are holding the 4th running of a 3 race Duathlon series (SERE Down Royal Duathlon Series) in early 2018 after a very successful series last 2 years.
This is a 2 mile run/ 10 mile bike/ 2mile run format.
We continue to develop our training package that ensures anyone joining us can improve, and do so in a safe, fun environment, with some sweat and hard work mixed in!. Coached training is provided by our Level 1 and 2 qualified coaches. The future of Lisburn Triathlon Club is very bright indeed!
