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.
