Training for 2022

Coached track sessions
Coached track sessions

We join forces with Builth Running Club and Rhayader Running Club once a month.
Brecon Track, once a month, on the following Tuesdays for 1 hour, 6:30pm - 7:30pm:
8th November, 2022
6th December, 2022
Sessions will continue in to 2023.
Olympic athletics coach Bob Smith leads the sessions. Bob lives in Brecon and has been working with Builth Running Club for some time. His main focus is elite, international athletes - but he makes time for us at no cost!

Many of you will know members in Builth Running Club and Rhayader Running Club. They are an exceptionally friendly bunch, and, like us, cater for all abilities.

The sessions are FREE to Brecon Triathlon Club members and no booking is required. The floodlights will be on and the Pavilion will be in use too (toilet and changing facilities).

There are a wide variety of distances to choose from in triathlon - from super sprints to Ironman and longer. As a result, individual training plans can be highly variable and finding training partners with the same needs and aspirations can be difficult.

We try to accommodate all abilities and to act as a focal point for advice, motivation and above all enjoyment. The success of any club is dependent on the motivation of the members - so feel free to advertise your sessions on our social media.

Attracting qualified coaches to the area has proved difficult but the club has a number of experienced triathletes who can provide direction if needed. Therefore our Facebook page acts as a good forum for discussion, updates and also race planning.

Triathlon Swimming

Coaching at Brecon Pool

Many come to the sport of triathlon without a swimming background and as such it can be very challenging to progress. If you are having difficulty with your swimming you can guarantee other club members will have had similar problems and will be glad to help.

We are looking to restart regular pool coaching again in 2023.
We will update when plans are finalised.

We have local open water sessions in the summer and autumn.

We have permission to swim in open water at Fforest Field, Builth Wells on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer.

Triathlon Specific Coaching

Meet at the track on Fridays

Triathlon coaching will restart in early 2023. Updates to follow.
Members need not be intimidated as the standards vary in age and abilities and you will always find people at similar levels.
Ad hoc runs are also arranged by Triathlon Club members - keep an eye on our Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter pages (@brecontri).

The Brecon Beacons provide a superb training ground for the bike leg of any triathlon.

Group rides are arranged on a regular basis and are usually organised through Facebook, Whatsapp or Twitter. Every month we have a specific club social ride/brick, usually on a Saturday, from Brecon Leisure.
