Mid Argyll Tri & Cycle Club are determined to make our sport of triathlon more accessible.

5Tri is an innovative programme we have launched to help 5 people from the Mid-Argyll and surrounding area – who had never previously considered attempting a triathlon – to achieve their first triathlon success by completing the Mid-Argyll Sprint Triathlon on September 27th 2015.

We have received generous funding from Scottish Sea Farm’s Heart of the Community Trust in order to provide these new athletes with a comprehensive coaching programme covering aspects and technique specific to each individual discipline – swimming, cycling & running – as well as workshop sessions on topics such as time management, training logs, nutrition, transitions (often considered triathlon’s 4th discipline) and bike maintenance.

You can follow all of the group’s progress on twitter, their “Talking Triathlon” podcast and their own dedicated 5Tri website.
