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.
