Torbay Tri Helps Classic
Torbay's only triathlon club - when one sport just isn't enough then Torbay Tri Club prides itself on a welcoming and professional environment for triathletes of all ages and abilities.
Whether new to the sport, with race specific goals or coming from an individual sports background and looking for a new challenge, the club is partnered with Torbay AC (but is a club in its own entity with) and has over 60 members across all adult ages.
Having officially formed in only 2013, spurred on by triathlon Olympic success in 2012, the club has established itself in creating a positive impact on the local sporting community. More than just a club, Torbay Tri Club is a way of life for many people and used as a place to not only train but meet like-minded people and share experiences as well as their passion for the sport. The club has not only grown in numbers but also in stature as members have represented the club at local, regional and international races.
With a small and dedicated committee at the core of the club, we rely heavily on raising our own funds from swim and bike training all year round. While we don't have the luxury of big finances, we have prioritised to invest in coaches training and for 2017 already working hard towards running a series of aquathlon (swim/run) events.
Our passion for the sport has always driven us and by staging events we aim at encouraging the community to become involved and give the sport a 'tri', giving something back that we will be proud to put our name to without a single minded focus on the financial perspective. While we celebrate the winners, often our biggest joy still comes from seeing those who have shown the commitment and dedication just to finish.
