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 and¬†Ironman¬†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.

Challenge Forte Village 70.3 - Sardinia Oct 2014
Written by Adele Jennings-Day
Alternative title ‚Ä¶ Doing a half ironman in your first year of triathlon
Crazy? ¬†Maybe, but I‚Äôve never been one to shy away from a challenge‚Ä¶
Some people (mostly non triathletes but also triathletes who know much better than me) have asked why I thought taking on a 70.3 five months after my first ever sprint tri would be a good idea.¬†
The main reason is that I got caught up in tales of ‚Äėgoing long‚Äô and I wanted to experience the challenge for myself. ¬†Being a member of the awesome Greenwich Tritons, talk often turns to longer races and those that members have completed. ¬†I have also read various ‚Äúironman‚ÄĚ related books (e.g. Iron War, A Life Without Limits - both recommended by the way) and I enjoy reading blogs of professional long course triathletes. ¬†I wanted to know how I would feel racing further than an Olympic distance. ¬†Could I maintain an intensity over 6 hours +? ¬†What would I feel like afterwards? ¬†Am I even capable of completing the distance?

Junior Aquathlon 2014
We were blessed with perfect weather for our Junior Aquathlon on and welcomed 140 of the region's top junior athletes to Colfe's School on¬†8 June. Our Junior Tritons looked fantastic in their new trisuits and it was great to see so many familiar faces as well as children doing their first ever multisport event. Everyone seemed to compete with smiles on their faces. Parents and marshals helped to create a fantastic atmosphere and the racing was as hot as the weather! Click here for the full results. What a great morning!¬†

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 O‚ÄôShea 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 I‚Äôm 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 ‚Äď reckon we‚Äôll be seeing her do Xterra events before long!!
