Bendigo Triathlon Club is a local sporting club offering encouragement, competition, and practical help for people looking to increase their fitness and participate in triathlons.
We believe triathlon is achievable for most people and are excited about the future of our sport.
Bendigo Triathlon Club has been active since 1988; it now has over 250 active members. From businessmen, kids, mums, students and retirees, to elite athletes competing at National and International level.
During Summer and Winter the Bendigo Triathlon Club has its own race series which is an excellent place to start your triathlon career in a local friendly atmosphere.
We aim to keep race fees low, to make the sport as affordable as possible. If you wish to start training many members organise their own group swim, ride, and running sessions.
Club members regularly travel and compete across the state, interstate, and even internationally from Bendigo to Busselton, Noosa to Port Macquarie, New Zealand to Hawaii.
For further information please contact John Flood on 0438 415 235 or email us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Teams may also enter any of the races mentioned above. You may race in teams of two or three people - one person doing the swim leg, one the bike leg and one the run leg, or a combination of disciplines, for example team member one does the swim and the run leg, while team member two does the ride. Membership and Race Entry Fees will apply to EACH team member.
Other Points of Interest
We advise all new members to read the Beginners Tips and Basic Rules flyer which can be found under General Info > Useful Downloads. A Course Map can also be found here. Please note: some tips may not apply to duathlons; and off-road duathlons may be held at a different location to the Course Map.
You don't need fancy equipment, there are no time limits, you can swim freestyle and swap to backstroke if you feel tired or slow to a walk instead of a run. The only person you have to race against is yourself! Triathlon is a fantastic sport for any age, which makes our club a very family friendly environment. Lots of encouragement is given to all competitors. So why not give yourself a new challenge!
Triathlon Victoria Memberships
The Bendigo Triathlon Club would like to advise all members that for the 2014/2015 Triathlon Season, our Club races will not be sanctioned with Triathlon Victoria. The primary reason being, the insurance costs through Triathlon Victoria & Triathlon Australia have increased substantially, therefore we have sourced our insurance through a private broker. Not sanctioning our races through Triathlon Victoria/Triathlon Australia has allowed the Club to keep our Club Memberships and Race Day Fees the same as last season. However, by sourcing our own insurance, should you wish to become a Triathlon Victoria/Triathlon Australia Member, you will need to pay the full membership fee of $200-00 (previously $120.00). If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact either the Club President (John Flood on 0438 415 235) or the Club Secretary (Trevor Watchman 0417 311 083)
