Edinburgh RC has many qualified triathlon coaches, and runs regular training sessions, including at least three swimming sessions every week. All the coaches volunteer their time and members are welcome to suggest and help organise new sessions. In addition, every year we organize popular triathlon-specific training week-ends, we have monthly 'Saturday sessions' for skill development, brick sessions and more. Check the What's On? page for the latest times and locations. This year you can pay for your annual swim fees online using EntryCentral: pay for your annual swim fees or your 2-month blocks.
Racing can be fun and rewarding, as well as a great way to make sure you keep attending those training sessions! We encourage members of all abilities to take part in races and ERC regularly fields a large team entry in triathlons and duathlons across Scotland. Our members compete at all levels of competition, from local events to international and World Championship level. Each year ERC Tri Squad has a club handicap championship where you accumulate points by racing and improving on your own previous results. Many races are listed on EntryCentral.com.
ERC club members organise various multi-sport events, including triathlons, duathlons and aquathons. In 2017, we again helped our friends at Edinburgh Racing with The Bruce Open Water Sprint at Lochore Meadows Country Park on June the 11th. We organized the ERC Triathlon Festival, also at Lochore, in August. Details of current club triathlon activities are posted on the What's on? page, and social activities are organized through the erctrisquad Yahoo! group and mailing list.

The tri squad committee have taken to difficult decision to cancel the 2017 ERC Tri Festival that was planned for September at Lochore Meadows.
There were a combination of factors that fed into this decision, with the final one being the fact that the new Lochore Park Centre won't be completed until October/November this year. Designing a safe course around a construction site, particularly involving the kids race, was something we felt uncomfortable with.
We plan to be back with a refreshed event in 2018 at Lochore.
