As a club, there are many members that compete in races as well as enjoying the social and fitness benefits joining a club offers. We’ve had many members that have represented the club in the UK and Overseas and others that have represented team GB as age groupers in European as well as World Championships
There are an ever increasing variety of races to choose from, covering all Triathlon distances (super-sprint through to Ironman), duathlon, aquathlon and other new variants introduced to spice up this amazing sport.
If you are choosing your own races then the British Triathlon website is the best place to start. http://britishtriathlon.org/
If you are looking for inspiration or want to compete against clubmates or to represent ELT against other London clubs then look no further than below. All abilities welcome.
Grand Prix: committee chooses these races each year, which make up the ELT Grand Prix. There are prizes for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd places in the Grand Prix. And points are awarded within the club to those people taking part
The first ELT member to cross the line gets 50 points, the second 49 points and so on. You have to take part in 3 races or more to qualify for an award with your top 3 scoring races counting towards the Grand Prix competition.
We have trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for both male and female and also for the male and female vets category (over 40 years of age). As well as the Grand Prix events, the club has some other events that we take part in through the year namely a 25 mile bike time trial, 10K run and Open water swim race. All of the above races warrant a trophy for the winner who is presented at the end of year awards dinner.
