Triathletes and duathletes from TeamMK compete in competitions ranging from local "Big Cow" events to international events such as the World Championships and the various Ironman events. All standards are catered for, from beginners to those trying to reach the top of the podium in elite races. What ever your experience level or interest there will be Triathletes in the club who can help you or share their knowledge of how to plan and prepare for particular events.
The club selects particular events each year for members to target as a club championship. These will often be the local Big Cow events held at Emberton near Olney.
The first triathlon club in Milton Keynes was formed in the 80's with many members based around Newport Pagnell. In the 90's the club merged with the MK cycling club and by 2001 had become TeamMK - a club with a handful of star performers and a solid core of regular competitors that give the club a friendly, supportive atmosphere. We are a Triathlon England affiliated club and are in the BTF handbook.
Regular training and coaching sessions are held at various times and venues. Swim training takes place at Wolverton Leisure Centre on Thursday evenings although this can be oversubscribed. The club wants to find a second swim session for club members.
Open water swimming generally starts in April with Box End near Bedford being the man facility used.
Training runs are held at various times
For cycle training – regular club rides for all levels are organised on Saturdays from Stony Stratford and Bodylimits in Newport Pagnell plus sometimes ad-hoc rides can be arranged. From April to August there are also 10 mile Time trials at a number of different courses in the area.
For all details of coaching and training please check the calendar.
The club has a very strong youth coaching set up with plans to train more coaches being developed. Swim and run coaching takes place on Thursdays and cycle coaching on Saturday afternoons. Many youths take part in Triathlons and Duathlons during the season with the club well represented with strong performances at many events.
