The Richmond Tri Club is for both the newbie and advanced triathlete. We have benefits for athletes at all levels. It doesn't matter if you train with a coach or another triathlon team/group. We are team agnostic. We welcome everyone from all teams!
Learn the nuts and bolts of triathlon as a beginner,
-step up your level of skill and endurance as an experienced triathlete,
-connect with training partners, and
-meet some terrific and inspirational people!
We are a social club! Yes we train hard, but we also play hard. We are always looking for opportunities to hang as old and new friends sometimes after a workout, and other times at special club events. Our Triathlete's Night Out (aka TNO) is a quarterly time where we gather for food, adult beverages and tri education from our sponsors. Our annual Winter Social is an event to look forward to. If you have an idea for a hangout, let us know and we'll post it on our calendar!
WEEKLY OPEN WATER SWIM WORKOUTS
In-season and when river conditions allow, we offer 2 open water swims per week with kayak support! Visit our calendar for the schedule and our Facebook page for updates and last minute cancelations.
CLINICS & Mentorship Program
Access to comprehensive clinics (swim, bike, run, transition, nutrition, weight lifting, injury recovery and more) featuring many of our sponsors as well as regionally and nationally- recognized professionals.

IRONMAN SCHWAG AND BENEFITS

We have power in numbers! At select events, if we have enough RTC members who register, we get private porta-potties, grouped transition areas, etc. We also select a few popular races to have RTC sponsored tail-gate parties for our members and their families. There is no better way to end a race, then to hang out with your local buddies!
