About Us

Upcoming Club Training

Upcoming Club Training

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).

And other distances as well as team’s events.

How do I train for a triathlon?

Anyone with basic level of fitness and who is willing to do a few specific training sessions can realistically expect to complete an enticer or even sprint distance event. 


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) 


For most novices the shorter distances are achievable and a great way to practice triathlon specific skills including open water swimming , swim to bike transition and bike to run transitions. If you start at least one session per week in each discipline (swim, bike and run) it should only take you 6-10 weeks till you are ready to complete an enticer event.
