Welcome to Engadine Triathlon Club

About Us

Engadine Triathlon Club (ETC) was established in 1993 as a family focused social club which caters for all levels of fitness and abilities. 


ETC promotes an emphasis on enjoyment and the encouragement of a healthy lifestyle. 


ETC bases most of its activities from Engadine Leirsure 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).

Beginners Guide to Triathlon

What is Triathlon?

Triathlon is a multi-sport event consisting of a Swim Bike and Run. There are various race distances including:- 

Enticer/Super Sprint - 300m/8km/2km

Sprint - 750m/20km/5km

Standard/Olympic - 1.5km/40km/10km

Half Ironman/Long Course - 1.9km/90km/21.1km

Ironman - 3.8km/180km/42.2km


And other distances as well as team’s events. 


Triathlon has some closely related cousins such as:- 

  • Duathlons (Run/Bike/Run) 
  • Aquathlons (Swim/Run) 
  • Xterra (Off-road triathlon) 

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. 

What equipment do I need?

You don’t need to outlay much to get a bit of a taste for triathlon. But you will need 

  • Swim - goggles and swimmers 
  • Bike - approved bike helmet and roadworthy bicycle (it can be any type of roadworthy bike - bmx, mountain bike, hybrid, road bike - consider borrowing from a friend if you don't have one)
  • Running - shoes or joggers 

Is triathlon for me?

Hopefully!! Triathlon is a great sport to make part of a healthy lifestyle and meet like minded individuals. Triathlon can be as big a part of your life as you want. It can give you fitness, travel to new locations meet new friends and help you achieve personal goals.  

How can I get involved?

 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.
