We have a number of Triathlon Scotland trained coaches who all have a wealth of expertise to bring to the training sessions.
We are a family club, and all club sessions are open to all ages (age 8 to 100).
Weekly sessions from now until the Summer:
MONDAYS: 7pm at 3B gym in Port William: Turbo session. Bring a road bike and turbo (there are some spares there if you don’t have one).
TUESDAYS: Although not part of the Tri Club, we recommend that adult runners or confident kids (preferably with a supervising parent) can run with the Galloway Harriers – (see their Facebook page)
FRIDAYS: from 23rd September: Swimming sessions at the Merrick Pool. 7.30-8.30pm for children and slower adults, and 8.30-9.30pm for faster swimmers. New swimmers are required to be able to swim a minimum of 50m. The normal pool fee should be paid to the coach (not reception).
WEEKENDS: Saturday afternoons: Road biking if the weather is good, often at Port William, or mountain biking at Kirroughtree if weather is not so good. Keep an eye on Facebook for updates. Bring your own bike and helmet. New juniors should bring an accompanying adult.
All these sessions are subject to change. The best thing is to always check the Facebook page for any last minute changes.
Training sessions are open to members only, although people can try out 2 sessions first before they decide to sign up. Current membership year runs until 31/3/17. Click here for the membership form.

Level 1 Triathlon Scotland Coaching Qualifications
– Our specialist cycling coach. Former GB International Cyclo Cross rider and BCCA National Veterans MTB Champion. Ted is a former GB Cyclo Cross squad Team Coach and Team Manager and a qualified MBLA Ride Leader. He has had many notable race results to his credit over the years and is an experienced cycling and fitness coach at all levels. He also has Bikeability and First Aid qualifications and is qualified to work with and coach children.
For the lastest of Teds’ Top Tips please see the following attachment. It contains good advice on planning for the years’ sports events…
– Has competed in triathlon for 21 years now and has raced all distances from sprint to Ironman. Most notable achievement to date is competing for GB in 2013 at age group world championships in London.
– Level 1 Triathlon Coach. A keen but underachieving triathlete and dedicated consumer of calories. Will travel endless miles and waste unlimited money in pursuit of the perfect swim stroke, and even more on the perfect bike – a marketeers dream!!
– Must first and foremost be described as a veteran with no plans to sit around wearing M&S cardigans and slippers. On the positive side, an experienced runner and frequent past competitor in all types of racing and challenges. Also a competent mountain and road biker but with little competitive history.
