Solihull Triathlon Club hosts members of all ages who compete in super sprint up to iron-distance triathlons and have a great history of members representing national age-group teams with the help of our club sessions. Click here for our list of club members who have gone on to represent their country. 

The club runs upwards of eight hours of group coaching sessions every week, with their Triathlon England qualified coaches. The club takes an athlete-centred approach to help everyone reach their goals.

Other multi-sport formats

We also welcome single-sport athletes, with many members taking part in cycle sportives and ultra marathons. The following multi-sport events come in a range of distances, mostly similar to the triathlon distances above.









Single-sport events

A handful of single-sport events undertaken by members include:


5km run in parks up and down the country (and worldwide). They take place every Saturday morning (usually 9am).

Cycling time trials (TT)

5, 10, 20, 50, or 100 mile time trails. These are solo races with no drafting permitted.

Sportives / Audaxes

Long bike rides (usually 50 miles plus), some with planned feed stops, route cards and signs.

Gravel / MTB

All-things off-road. Gravel and mountain bike routes and races are available all year round.

Warwickshire road race league

An annual series of road running races over a variety of distances with series winners in a number of age categories.

Adventure races

Almost all with cycling and running stages but also perhaps kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding. Navigation may be more important than in many other events and they can be for teams or individuals.

Ultra runs

Anything longer than a marathon but usually off road and often an experience with some run/walking rather than an all-out run.

Club structure

The club is affiliated with Triathlon England (part of British Triathlon) and is run entirely by volunteers. The Club Committee currently has five Officers:

  • Chair – Nacho Veloco
  • Secretary – Anthony Hanaphy
  • Treasurer – Glen Mitchell
  • Welfare Officer – Peter Pardoe
  • Head Coach – Gareth David

The Club is governed by its Constitution and its Policies. The Club is strongly aligned to the Welfare policies of Triathlon England and as such we hold a Trimark Club Bronze rating.

The club is listed with Solihull Active.
