Our lake-based Triathlon Events attracted competitors from all over the country and abroad. We have two great venues at Druridge Bay Country Park and the stunning Woodhorn Museum.

Our Open water swim training Sessions have continued to grow with many new people coming to train at our sessions making this extremely popular, with beginners, recreational swimmers’ triathletes and competitive open water swimmers alike.
