Abbotsford Triathlon Club

Swim Farther, Ride Harder, Run Faster

’21 is almost done … let’s renew for ’22!

What did 2021 teach us?  To be patient, embrace challenges, show resiliency and be grateful! 

What will 2022 bring?  Who knows?  One thing is for certain, however. ATC will not just survive: it will THRIVE!!!

After all, look at what we accomplished in 2021!  We held group Open Water Swims at Cultus and Rolley Lakes!  We held Time Trials, Bricks and Duathlons on Matsqui Prairie!  We had Bike Rides in Abbotsford and Chilliwack!  We even began Pace Perfection Practises to refine our early morning running skills!  

Abbotsford Triathlon Club enters its 8th Year in 2022!  Starting October 1st, our 2022 Membership Drive is up and away!

About Us

The Abbotsford Triathlon Club is a not-for-profit organization serving athletes who pursue athletic goals in the sports of running and/or biking and/or swimming.  We encourage participation in all combinations of these sports, including duathlons, aquabikes, swim-runs and triathlons. Whether you wish to put together a relay team, complete your first solo triathlon or go for an Age Group win,  ATC is here for you.  

ATC supports all of our members with field-tested weekly swim/bike/run workouts.  All workouts have a wide range of intensity and duration, making them adaptable to any athlete regardless of fitness level.  These are emailed to each member as a “Monthly Fitness Pack”.  The weekly workouts can be completed during club sessions or at your own leisure, depending on your needs and your individual circumstances.  We also have many social events to bring us together.   ATC is a safe, respectful and inclusive club environment in which to train, whenever, wherever and however you can.  

I asked Mikey Ross to coach me because I really admire him and want to be [an athlete] like him. He has won numerous races, set course records, and broken his own course records. He's been called an "age group legend" by a race director. His coaching has helped me attain my goals injury free. Knowing that I am accountable to a coach makes me train harder, smarter (to prevent injury), and more frequently (sometimes I'd rather lie in bed than get up and do my workout, but knowing I have [a coach] motivates me). Getting a coach is the best thing you can do to help you set and attain your fitness goals.
