Taff Ely Triathlon club is a multi-sport club for all standards of athletes, from Newbie triathletes to seasoned Ironmen and Ironwomen. All ages and abilities welcome. It is affiliated to Welsh Triathlon, the National Governing body for Triathlon in Wales.
The attached video illustrates what the club is all about (Credit to John Smith – Same Old Smith).
We have coached swimming sessions at Abercynon Leisure Centre Pool Sundays 5:00 p.m. Children from age 8 up to 17 , 6:00 and 7:00 p.m. Adults, and Wednesdays 8:30 p.m. Beginner and Inexperienced Adults. We also have a coached swim session at Rhydycar Leisure Centre Merthyr Tydfil on Sundays at 4.30 p.m. If you wish to swim at one of our sessions with the aim of completing and competing at a Triathlon event, then please join our Club Facebook site and complete the contact form on this web-site. This will go to our membership secretary, to put your name down on the waiting list or approve your place in one of our classes. You will need to indicate your current front-crawl swimming time for 400m and tell us what your aims are.
Winter bike rides on Saturdays start in November, we have an active Zwift indoor group and Power classes take place in Hawthorn Leisure Centre (hosted by Jon Phillips RCT), both of which take place on Tuesdays during the winter, so plenty of cycling to get involved with! Summer evening rides on Tuesdays start in May after clocks go forward and we can get out safely in the light. Members often post rides throughout the week and on Saturdays on our club members page, so join up and join in. Also available to members is a Winter Strength and Conditioning group hosted at the Fitness Locker in Merthyr Tydfil over the winter months.
Run sessions at Abercynon Sports Centre throughout the year on Mondays (meeting up at 7:10 p.m. and leaving around 7:15 p.m. except bank holidays) and from Llantrisant Sports Centre on Thursdays at 7 p.m. details of the sessions are also advertised on the Club Facebook site, please click on Icon to take you directly to the site:
