CLUB WINS TRIMARK BRONZE ACCREDITATION

It’s celebrations all round for Darlington Tri after we became one of the first clubs in the North-East to win British Triathlon’s Trimark bronze accreditation. 

It’s official recognition for both our senior and junior clubs that Darlington Tri meets the highest standards of governance when it comes to coaching, administration, safeguarding and child protection.

Major thanks go to Iain for all the hard work he has put into this application. It was certainly a proud moment when accreditation was confirmed at the Teesdale Triathlon.

BIG TURN-OUT AT 10TH BIRTHDAY DINNER

Around 50 members and guests attended the club’s 10th birthday gala dinner at Hotel Bannatyne. From small beginnings in 2008, Darlington Tri has become one of the major clubs in the North-East, with members regularly winning Great Britain honours. We have also become an important gateway for newcomers to the sport and we have a flourishing junior section.
Goodwill messages were read out from as far away as Australia and New Zealand. A highlight of the evening was a giant celebration cake baked by Head Coach Richard Hughes.

HAVE FUN AT OUR GO TRI STARTER EVENT

We’re staging a GO TRI starter aquathlon in Darlington on Tuesday May 15 as a taster for the Teesdale Triathlon. 

GO TRI is a great way to learn about triathlon in a friendly, supportive environment and this event has been designed specifically to help Teesdale entrants who may be wondering what to expect in Barnard Castle on September 23.

This starter event consists of a 200m swim (eight lengths of the pool) followed by a 2k run within the grounds of the Education Village. We have kept the entry fee down to just £8, just enough to cover our costs.

  • Coaches from Darlington Triathlon Club will be on hand to answer your questions on all aspects of our club race and triathlon in general
  • Maps of the Teesdale Triathlon course and advice about the kind of kit you need to bring on race day
  • Finishers’ medals plus free refreshments

Entries are limited to just 32 and the closing date is Saturday May 12. Start time is 6.45pm, with pre-event briefing at 6pm.
