Don’t be fooled into thinking you need to spend huge amounts of money to get started in triathlon. In fact, starting out is the very opposite. At Tri-Alliance, all you’ll need is a positive attitude, and any type of bike (preferably one with two wheels and that’s safe to ride on!).


  • Goggles and swimmers will do just fine. If you have an wetsuit, bring that along too.


  • Helmet and a bicycle of any make, model or design is fine. Don’t forget to bring along your runners and bike shoes if you have specific pedals.


  • Runners and comfortable running gear

Still need further convincing? Many of our current members had so much fun during the Try the Tri Program, that they went on to become Social or Short Course members at Tri-Alliance. Here’s a snippet of what you can expect during our six-week beginner program;

  • Motivating group sessions that are easy to follow
  • Train with other like-minded athletes (similar fitness/skill level)
  • Improve your Fitness and Triathlon skills with fun sessions
  • Increase your confidence as you challenge yourself to learn new skills and knowledge
  • Social, Accepting and Inclusive Environment
  • Meet new people and make long-lasting friendships
  • The sense of achievement as you cross the finish line at your first race!
