Tri Guru training at the Active Tameside Triathlon sessions

Please note that in order to participate in the Active Tameside triathlon training sessions you either need to be a member of Active Tameside or you have to pay per session. You don't have to join ActiveTameside to participate in the sessions but they can be booked in advance by Active Tameside members so they may be full when you turn up if you are not a member.

The full Active Tameside timetable for all sessions, not just triathlon training, at all centres is here.

New bike session - chain gang from Copley 18:30 Tuesdays laps round Mossley and run off for those who fancy it.

The Active swim sessions will be run by our coach Kath Thomas supported by Martin Cain and Sean Ofsarnie.

Spin sessions will be run by Active staff but there is the potential for more sessions if there is a demand for it, you can also turn up to any of the other spin sessions.
