riathlon is currently one of the fastest growing sports in the world. We think it’s the most addictive, too! Brunel University Triathlon Club welcomes swimmers, runners and cyclists of all abilities. Most members are new to at least one of our three sports, so all standards are well catered for. With regular cycle rides of the local area, short, sharp runs around the athletics track and swims coached by Hillingdon Triathlete’s Club, we have plenty to get your heart racing.

Socialising is big for us, too. as well as organising gettogethers, nights out and our annual Christmas meal, we like to do things a little out of the ordinary... Last year, in amongst training, we squeezed in a three-day cycle trip from Brunel to Paris! This year, we want to become a bigger, better club and are open to ideas for our next big adventure. If you’re looking to try out an exciting new sport, as well as make friends with people who share your passion, Brunel one for you! Come along to our Triathlon Taster Session during Fresher’s Week at Brunel athletics Track. The session will be held by a Triathlon coach on 26th September from 2-3pm and will cost £2 per person.
