London Fields Triathlon Club was formed in October 2009 after a chance meeting between Chris Skinner and Guy Holbrow at London Fields Lido. Guy’s pal Tim Smith happened to be a triathlon coach, and the first seeds were sown. The club aims to promote triathlon through a variety of coached sessions and organised events, offering affordable, rewarding experiences in the sport for members of the local community.
In early January 2010, twenty enthusiastic members met in the snow for out first session. From these humble beginnings, the club has steadily attracted a growing membership base and now has almost 200 active members and another 500 enthusiasts on it’s mailing list.
LFTC are a young club but what we lack in experience is more than made up in our enthusiasm. We offer training and competition in a friendly environment for everyone from complete novices to hardened Ironman veterans. We are a not for profit, community focused club run by volunteers and we like to think our members get out what they put in, which is often a lot of time, energy and love!
LFTC run a full constitution, with volunteer members elected to a representative committee. We are members of the British Triathlon Federation, and we are committed to achieving the highest level of club mark and creating a thriving juniors section in addition to the adults wing of the club.
