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!
