TRAINING AND EVENTS

Come Train with Us

WEEKLY TRAINING SESSIONS

Bilbys runs a year round training program with sessions in all triathlon disciplines. Bilbys training consists of some paid sessions run by qualified coaches, while other sessions are non-coached and typically free or at cost. For swim and run sessions, bilbys members pay $5 and non-members pay $10.

Prospective members are always welcome. Some sessions require previous experience – for example, road cycling in bunches. See session-specific details in the links below, and always make yourself known to the coach or bunch leader if you are new or unsure.

The annual novice program which runs through October and November provides an excellent grounding for anyone looking to join regular club sessions.
