Welcome to the Greenwich Tritons
The Greenwich Tritons are based in South East London and have been around since the mid 1980's, making us one of the more established triathlon clubs in the region.
We pride ourselves on being a genuinely friendly club and welcome new members of all abilities to join existing club members who range from World and European Championship level athletes andÂ IronmanÂ athletes, to those just taking their first steps on their triathlon journey.
We have a number of qualified British Triathlon Federation (BTF) and British Swimming (ASA) coaches across all triathlon disciplines within our ranks and we use a variety of local venues and resources for our training.
It's not all hard graft though! In addition to training, sharing knowledge, coaching and racing, a key part of the club is the number of well attended social events we hold throughout the year.
Tritons Latest News
Virgin Money London Marathon
Three Tritons set off on Sunday in glorious conditions for the 2014 London Marathon full of hopes and fears, and all three finished with big smiles and big p.b's. Lucy Partridge in her debut at the distance exceeded all expectations with an excellent 4:34:43. Next up was Carl Botten in his second London marathon finishing with a massive p.b. in 4:09:11. Finally the first Triton home and taking the spoils was Steve Walker, not only smashing his best but taking a comfortable sub 3 in the process with an outstanding time of 2:58:39. Well done to all.
Tritons storm the XC season (literally)
2013-14 was an excellent fourth season for the Tritons, with club members represented at the Kent League, the London League, the Kent Champs and the South of England championship races between September and February. Courses varied in their challenge, from merely requiring carpet slippers in Swanley, to armpit high waders on Parliament Hill.
Our boys turned out in force, even making a full team of 12 on a couple of occasions and newcomers to the specialty, such as Allan Woodhouse, Dave Singer and Marc Oâ€™Shea really took up the challenge. In the Kent League, our own Simon Neville was 3rd OVERALL in his age category and special note should go to Vern Thomas for his monumental finish at the Southerns at Parliament Hill, in filthy weather conditions that would have most people diving under their duvet!
We had a smaller turnout from the girls this season, but as always Debbie Coyle struck out in front for the Tritons and we made a team representation in all but one of the races (that was my fault!). Despite this, we regularly ranked higher than the Cambridge Harrier ladies and when we get more strength to our team Iâ€™m sure we can give those Blackheath and Bromley girls a run for their spikes! Those ladies whose debut season it was, spoke glowingly of the fun they had and the strength they were gaining in their running and the results across the season were testimony to their improvement. In particular, Nadja Brouwer has really taken to off- road running â€“ reckon weâ€™ll be seeing her do Xterra events before long!!
Tritons win again

After winning the Youth B (15-16) category at the British Biathle championships over the summer I was selected to represent GB at the world championships to be held in Cyprus. Iâ€™d had a taste of international competition before, at the world schools cross country championships in 2012, but this was a much bigger event. 27 countries had sent teams across all the age groups, many from western Europe but also South Africa, Korea, India and Russia.

Junior Tritons enjoy success at the British Triathlon U20â€™s Festival
Our junior triathletes turned in fantastic performances at the U20â€™s Festival at Dorney Lake today (31 August). In the first race of the day 12 year old Tom Simpson produced the fastest bike split on his way to a brilliant bronze medal in the Inter-Regional Championships read more. Then upcoming international star Kate Curran put an injury-blighted season behind her with an awesome 10th place in the ETU Junior European Cup full report here. As the 3rd GB athlete to cross the line we are hoping that Kate has earned a starting place for the world champs in Hyde Park later this month.Â
Kate Curran Takes Bronze
Congratulations to Kate Curran who took a fantastic bronze medal at the World Junior Duathlon Championships in Ottawa Canada. After a tremendous first 5km run which shattered the field she entered T1 with the lead group of just 3 athletes. She the rode strongly during the 20km bike coming into T2 in 2nd place with the 3rd place Slovakian on her heels. After a tough final 2.5km run she was narrowly beaten into 3rd place. This is a fantastic achievement in a very strong international field.Â
Huge congratulations to junior member Natasha Sinha who won her age group in the Biathle national championships at Salford Quays last weekend. Biathle is Modern Pentathlon's version of an aquathlon and involves a 1,000m run followed by a 200m swim and another 1,000m run. Natasha will now represent GB at the world championships to be held in Cyprus in October.
