Hello and welcome to Invictus Triathlon Club.
Invictus Triathlon Club was formed in 2011 and attracts members from mainly the greater Belfast area but also from further afield. We currently have around 50 members across a range of age groups, including up and coming talented tri-athletes in the Triathlon Ireland youth development squad, whom we are happy to support through their training. As most members are age group competitors we understand the challenges and pressures of juggling training and racing with family life and work!
Invictus members and teams have been competing in triathlons and duathlons across Ireland and further afield. This year has seen a number of our club achieve age group success both in the National series and at the ETU World championships in Chicago. The male team achieved a creditable 3rd position in the 2014 TI National Series championships. We have also had club members representing Ireland in the ETU Championships in Kitzbuhel Austria.
Our club works on the ethos of train hard and race smart. We are lucky to have the services of David Graham as swim coach. David is a qualified personal trainer and has competed at an elite level in both triathlon and swimming. The club running sessions are coached by Dave Lonnen who has many years’ experience coaching and competing at an international level
We have regular training schedule covering the swim, bike and run disciplines of triathlon. Our Swim training uses the facilities at Royal Belfast Academical Institute while we use a range of venues for our run and cycle sessions.
To supplement our “regular” training we have been running training camps in Downhill and Malaga giving our members the opportunity for some intense training to kick start their season.
It’s not all blood, sweat and tears though as throughout the year we have regular social events to give everyone a chance to relax and have some downtime.
Invictus is affiliated with Triathlon Ireland and works closely with the Ulster Triathlon development branch. In 2015 Invictus will be hosting once again the Glenarm Dalriada Sprint triathlon, Ireland’s first midweek Triathlon.
