About the club

Welcome to our website, where you can become a club member, enter our annual triathlon, keep your eye on the training calendar, and view past results of the Benalla Triathlon.

The Benalla Triathlon Club is active between October and March, and runs the annual Benalla Triathlon at the end of December every year, which is part of the Victorian Rural Tri Series, and attracts competitors from all around Victoria and interstate. Our club's membership is wide and varied, from those who've competed in ironman events to the novice who is yet to enter a race. The club caters for all levels, and training sessions are structured so as to challenge the more advanced competitor, whilst being non-threatening to the beginner.

Club members compete in a wide range of triathlons over the summer months in metropolitan and country Victoria, as well as interstate. During the winter months, club members compete in Duathlons, mountain and road bike events, and Fun Runs.

The Benalla Tri Club fosters an environment where everybody can improve upon their own performances in a friendly and social atmosphere.

New members are always welcome. Contact us and we'll make it a little easier for you to attend your first training session.
