Engadine Triathlon Club (ETC) was established in 1993 as a family focused social club which caters for all levels of fitness and abilities.
The club encourages a healthy lifestyle with an emphasis on enjoyment.
ETC bases most of its activities from Engadine Leisure Centre on Anzac Ave, Engadine, meeting there most Saturday mornings at 7am. All training activities are conducted at your own pace and for your own duration (30 min up to approximately 60min). No-one ever participates alone. The sessions are all led by club volunteers.
We also offer additional training sets throughout the week, and hold fully sanctioned club races throughout the year - Aquathons (swim/run), Duathlons (run/bike/run) and Triathlons (swim/bike/run).

Firstly have you ever swum, ridden a bike or run? For most of us the answer is YES (even if it has been a few years ;-)) or if you haven’t, do you enjoy challenging yourself and trying to achieve something new? (see below for basic training program)

Joining a club is a great start. You will be able to participate in organised club training and social events. By meeting other club members you will have access to many years of accumulated knowledge for all levels of triathlon.
