KCL Triathlon 2022/2023
Welcome to the KCL Triathlon Team! We are an enthusiastic club and we welcome all levels, whether you've never tried triathlon before, are a runner, swimmer or cyclist looking for a bit of a challenge or if you are a seasoned triathlete.
Come along to free taster sessions and get the vibe of the KCL Triathlon society. We will do our best to organise as many events, welcome runs, socials and long rides. Do not hesitate to get in contact with any of the committee members! We are open to all of your suggestions. All levels are welcome.
Athletics sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays (19:00-20:30) at Southwark Athletics Center. You will have the opportunity to train with experienced coaches from London City Athletics Club who have a partnership with Kings Athletics. The society also organises park runs, longer runs, and Wedsneday's Bootcamp runs along the Thames by 14:30. Buy the athletics top-up so that you can participate in athletics races! There are cross country, indoor track and outdoor track races throughout the year.
Swimming sessions from 13:00-14:00 at Orchard Lisle Pool next to Guy’s Campus. We will have swim coach Henry Fincher for weekly sessions!
Cycling sessions are organised with the King's Cycling Club during the weekend. For sure, this is the place to be as a cyclist in London and enjoy outdoor training (with some rays of sunlight).
Two types of membership exist. On top of every sports membership, you must pay the £4.00 KCLSU sports insurance. NB sometimes KCLSU does not let you purchase the Triathlon membership unless you have already bought the sports insurance.
→ The standard membership is £65 and includes all the training (two track sessions joint with Athletics, cycling sessions, and swimming slots [NB does not include coached sessions]. The associate standard membership targets specifically KCL alumni (graduated students), KCL staff or other students from other universities.
→ The joint membership with Athletics (£25 if you already have a triathlon membership or £30 if you already have an athletics membership) allows you to attend all the training, compete in Athletics competitions (LUCA & cross country) and attend their social events. If you are still unsure you can purchase first the Standard membership for Athletics or Triathlon and choose later to buy the top-up.
Come and join us at the Welcome Fair at Old Billingsgate Building on Thursday 22nd of September from 10:00-17:00. We would strongly recommend you to attend this event: a great atmosphere, a good way to discover KCL and definitely an opportunity to meet new students.
BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) competitions gather all the UK universities three times a year for one duathlon in November and two triathlons (Standard and Sprint formats) in April/May. We also have a great race calendar lined up throughout the year! It is worth giving a try and super fun even if you do not have lots of experience.
If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to reach out to us on Instagram! We have a WhatsApp group chat too.
Your committee: Edouard (President), Jake (Treasurer), Lucy (Co-Secretary) and Olly (Co-Secretary)
