Club Racing Events

The Taunton Deane Triathlon, founded in 1998 as partership betwen the Club and the Taunton Dean Council of the time, is our most local Sprint Triathlon race and continues to be held in Wellington, at what is now the GLL sports centre on Corams Lane, each May.

We ask Club Members for their support of this event through assistance in the setting up, marshalling on the day and clearing up afterwards. Most club members also take advantage of the dicounted entries available in return for teir asisstance and compete in the race -  and there is a long-standing tradition of a celebratory curry that evening. 

The Club also holds an Aquathlon, at the same venue, in Feburary each year - and also a Junior Aquathlon at Queens College in October.   Again, Club members are asked to assist in the running of both events and in doing so will earn discounted entires to the races. For details on these races please visit the Racing Page
