Wight Tri provided regular pool or sea coached swim sessions throughout most of the year. We also organise group cycle rides, have links with the Island’s main cycling club and arrange weekend training camps periodically.

We have good links with the Island’s sporting communities and encourage members to use them to get good bike and run training outside of Wight Tri.

Below is information and links to regular training groups by discipline.

Beginner’s guide

Wight Tri welcome and encourage anyone to have a go at the sport. We also understand it can be a bit daunting to some people or may seem expensive to get into. To that end we have produced a ‘beginner’s guide’ tailored to our club.

Swim training

We have coached swim training at Medina Pool on Wednesday’s 8-9pm, September through to May. The pool is privately hired, numbers are limited and the cost is subsidised, payable per term in advance.
