Training with CWTC
We hold a variety of training sessions which are designed to cater for all abilities, to be inclusive, and to be fun safe and fun. Our main swim session on a Tuesday evening and some of our run sessions are led by qualified British Triathlon Federation coaches. Other training sessions may not be led by qualified coaches, therefore anyone participating does so entirely at their own risk. To check the coaching status of any of our training sessions, please refer to our Facebook private group page or directly with a member of the committee.
You must always undertake your own assessment of the training environment and conditions before commencing a session. The Chichester Triathlon Club takes no responsibility for the safety or belongings for any person participating in training sessions that are not led by an appropriately qualified British Triathlon Federation coach.
We would strongly advise all of our members to take out their own personal membership with the British Triathlon Federation as this will provide personal cover for training and racing – https://www.britishtriathlon.org/join.
