Darlington Triathlon Club

We are a friendly club catering for all abilities; from beginners to seasoned-pros.


We have a couple of club-affiliated run sessions, normally Monday and Thursday nights. 


Tuesdays at the Education Village: this is our main swim night, spread over two hours from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

Choose between 6.30-7.30 and 7.30-8.30. Both sessions are multi-ability and fully coached and lifeguarded. You’ll find the second session quieter.

Cost is £3.50 payable poolside. Please sign in before you swim. Please note, both sessions start promptly so make sure you are in the water in good time.

We have Sunday swims at Branksome School pool out of race season.

Please see the map below for information.

Summer time open water training

Open water swimming takes place every Thursday night at Ellerton Lake, Scorton, with Donna (our advanced swim coach) coaching club members from 6-7pm. Cost is £4 payable to the lake owner plus a 50p kayak fee payable to Donna


For those of you who want to do some background reading into swim technique have a look a the Swimsmooth website [external link]. This is a fantastic resource with computer/video analysis, training advice and skill development. Whether your a beginner or advanced swimmer this website will have something for you. Get studying and see you at training!


Club members meet At Broken Scar Car park 8am (9am in Winter) Saturday mornings. Please ensure you bring everything you will need for the maintenance of bike, food and drink for on the bike and a small amount a cash if there is a coffee stop. Please note Everyone is responsible for their own safety.

Each ride usually lasts between 2 and 4 hours (from 20 to 40 miles), for the longer rides we will aim to have a café stop to refuel so everyone makes it back together!

There are usually two groups to cater for faster/slower paces.

We show good bike etiquette, making sure new members are supported – and don’t leave anyone behind.
