Announced in November 2020, Straggtri has been paused. This is as a result of the difficulty in finding a suitable pool for training and to allow our coaches to focus on other commitments. Information below has been held for record and we'll make a further announcement when we have news.
The Stragglers would like to thank everyone who has given their time and energy to growing this part of the club.
Developed within the existing Kingston based Stragglers Running Club, a triathlon community committed to offering members triathlon coaching and multi-sport opportunities within a friendly supportive environment.
We encourage and support participation in triathlon events. Our members participate in relay, sprint and Olympic distance tri races, in duathlons, aquathons, distance swims.
Don’t be put off if you’re not very good at one of the sports, you’ll get lots of encouragement from existing members and it’s never too late to learn!
Sept to April – Tri England trained coached pool sessions for swim technique, building stamina and distance sessions.
May – August – lake sessions for swim stamina and lake acclimatisation sessions
Cycling – see the Stragglists section of this site
Running – the Stragglers club meet 3-4 times a week at least, see the running section of this site
