SUTRI is one of the most friendly and inviting clubs you can find here at Southampton University, we have members from all backgrounds, from triathletes who have competed at World Championships to those who are learning how to swim and cycle and those getting back on their feet running! Many of our members have never done a triathlon before joining, and many leave with a new found passion! Many of our races we attend as a group are highly discounted, making triathlon an inclusive sport for all.
Swimming: We have three swim sessions a week, two of which are professionally coached, all with planned sets.
We have professional coaches aiding our group's swimming ability in the pool (and when it's warm enough, in the lakes!) Depending on the session, these can focus on drills and technique, speed, endurance, open water skills and more! These sessions can be hard work but incredibly fun!
We have a teaching and technique session with a professional coach dedicated to focusing on those improving their basic swimming skills, whether that be learning to swim or honing in on specific techniques. These sessions usually have fewer swimmers, with 121 coaching for each swimmer, no matter their ability or speed. These sessions have been found to be extremely rewarding for all, especially those with less swimming experience.
Cycling: We mostly cycle with our sister club, SURC, on Wednesday and Sunday, but this year we are starting a SUTRI-only ride, which offers a friendly ride, perfect for those slightly less confident on the bike to join those more confident in a sociable setting!
We are also starting a skills and maintenance session, focusing on important cycling skills, triathlon-specific skills, such as transitions, and basic bike maintenance, allowing everyone to be confident on the bike in training and a race!
Many of us attend the SURC spinning sessions, which is a fantastic way to get the heart racing and listen to some snazzy music whilst strengthening the legs! This is included in our joint SUTRI-SURC membership.
Running: We have one SUTRI-only running session per week, these are called our Interval sessions. Our run captain leads these sessions, and each week focuses on a different aspect of running in a triathlon, whether that be speed, endurance, pacing, hills or more! We lead a Parkrun group, with the option of extending the sociable and popular Parkrun in Southampton Common, by running at a sociable pace for a pre-agreed distance, perfect for training for longer races.
We offer a joint membership with SUACC (athletics), where SUTRI members, with a joint membership, can go to all of SUACC's training, including coached track sessions. SUACC's group run, which is open to all (even those without a joint-SUACC membership), is a great way to socially run with a group, many of our SUTRI members regularly run and lead these groups!
We offer both drinking and non-drinking socials, and as our club is smaller compared to others at the university, we are a close-knit team! Send us a message, or pop along to one of our many sessions and say hi!
All clubs and societies within the Students' Union are run entirely by students. The student committee for Triathlon this year are:
