Abbotsford Triathlon Club

Swim Farther, Ride Harder, Run Faster

Hello & Welcome!

Abbotsford Triathlon Club is a quickly growing group of experienced, “newbie” and even “soon-to-be” triathletes, ranging in age from 18 to 60+ !  Membership grew from 40 in 2015 to 52 “Tri-ers” in 2016, our second year as a club. We live and exercise in and around Abbotsford, Mission, Yarrow, Agassiz, Chilliwack, Coquitlam and Langley.  Our “International” members represent ATC in Washington and Massachusetts!  

Membership and participation in Abbotsford Triathlon Club is a great way for new athletes to get a friendly introduction to the sport of triathlon.  We also guide current triathletes to reach higher levels of excellence through the many weekly swim, bike and run opportunities available, most of which are included with your membership. Members who don’t or can’t swim, bike or run can participate in “Tri-lays”, where they compete as a relay team.

We are a community focused club and strive to provide a safe, fun and inclusive environment for members of all abilities to learn, train and develop in the sport. We currently have seven NCCP trained or certified coaches who offer advice and training opportunities as part of your membership. Some have won in their age groups, two have competed in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii, but all of them share a common passion for fitness.  Our coaches create a balance between training for fun as well as competition.  We strive to meet the needs of all members, whether they be single sport afficionados, beginners or experienced competitors.

We are very excited to discover what 2017 holds in store for us all.  We look forward to training with you and sharing in the camaraderie of our sport. Registration for 2017 is now open – take a look at our Calendar to see what events are coming up!

We support all of our members with exemplary swim/bike/run workouts.  These workouts can be completed during club sessions or at your own leisure, depending on your needs and your individual circumstances.  Just as importantly, our regular social events are sprinkled throughout the year.  We offer all of our members a safe and enjoyable 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.

Ashleigh transformed my technique which allowed me actually enjoy swimming! As someone who had always wanted to try a triathlon, but never had the swim skills, Ashleigh got me ready to compete in the Lees Trail Triathlon, the Victoria Subaru Triathlon, and Penticton Triathlon

I would highly recommend Ash and Hilary . . . Well thought out lessons taught in a very easily understood manner. Great Job, Ladies! Thanks to Ash I feel very confident in my swimming abilities going into Ironman Monterrey. My technique has greatly improved and I am much quicker. Thanks for the help.
