About Bassetlaw Triathlon

Welcome to the Bassetlaw Triathlon Club Web site.

Our small, but active club prides its self on being friendly and accessible. We are primarily based in Worksop, with many of our nearly 120 members living nearby or in the surrounding areas such as Retford, wider Bassetlaw District, South Yorkshire and North-East Derbyshire. Our members range from complete beginners, including non swimmers, to team GB age group athletes – everyone is welcome and encouraged.  Members are genuinely supportive of each other regardless of ability, they share tips and encourage each other.  Personally, I value their support and friendship and if you join us, you will experience that too.  

We have successfully organised five pool swim triathlons, which succeeded in the aim of bringing a new sporting event to the area.  We encourage and support both novices and seasoned athletes to take part.  We are extremely grateful for the support of Bassetlaw Council who helped set up the club in 2012 as part of the Olympic Legacy and without whom our events could not take place.

Our growing coaching team, led by Steve Chambers, work hard to cater for all ability levels in the coached training sessions – more information can be found on the training pages of this website. Along with the coached sessions there are often occasions when club members meet up for un-coached runs, or bike rides, these are often posted on the club Facebook members group for anyone to join.

Whether you have been thinking about Triathlon as your next challenge or you have been involved in the sport before and are looking for like minded people to train with, take a look around the website to find out more about what our club has to offer and then come join us.

We look forward to seeing you.
