Membership

Joining the Club

The best way to find out if you want to join the club is to come along to one (or a few) of our sessions, join in with the training and meet fellow members.

Generally we have folk out mountain-bike cycling on Monday evenings, wild-swimming on either Tuesdays or Wednesdays, road cycling on Thursday evenings, and indoor/pool swimming on Thursday evenings & Saturday mornings.  Specific information on what we do, where and when we train, can be found on discipline-specific pages.

If you wish to participate in club time-trials and/or cycle sportive, then you will be required to become a full member as these are club confined events.

Alternatively, if you would like to chat about the club or the sport(s) of triathlon, please contact any of our members or message us on Facebook.

Membership subscription is currently £15 per annum.  You can join the Mid-Argyll Tri & Cycle Club via our membership page on Entry Central.
