Below are some of the various activities team BW age group athletes have been taking part in. This is a snapshot from one weekend of competitions ! These include experienced athletes along with complete beginners who have set out with a challenge at numerous events. In some cases those athletes couldn’t even swim 12 months ago ! Hopefully this may inspire yourself to come along and realise that the experience and professionalism we offer within our sessions is open to everyone with ambition. Whether this is to swim 400m or compete in an Ironman. It could be to gain open water confidence to learning to ride a bike properly.
So have a read below and don’t be shy if you feel motivated then pick up the phone or drop us an email and someone will be happy to field your enquiry.

Well done Gents possibly we will have some mother & daughter combinations in the near future ?
More age group success from the weekend with new members taking the plunge in the Weymouth 70.3. Robert Light 5hr 56min, Matthew Pysden 6hr 15min & Nick King 6hr 50min. All were competing in their first half ironman distance triathlon and are newly turned triathletes having come from a rugby background. Well done to them on a fantastic achievement!
Hopefully results like this will spur others on to come along and be involved with some training and set some personal challenges.
The Vitruvian 70.3 at Rutland Water on 9th Sept saw more TeamBW age group athlete success with Jo Smith completing the event after setting herself the challenge only weeks before. She managed a very creditable 6hr 42 and enjoyed the experience so much that rather than it being a one off she now has further challenges up her sleeve !
Stuart Mills (50/54) also competed finishing in a very strong 4hr 31.
Once again it’s great to see some of our adult athletes benefiting from the coaching and the professional support available through the sessions and advice.
