About Born2Tri

Who we are, what we do

Born2Tri was formed in Braintree, North Essex, in 2007 to encourage everyone, regardless of their ability, to take part in the sport of triathlon. Over the past 10 years we have supported and developed over 400 triathletes within the club who have all gone on to achieve their goals.

The club has nine British Triathlon Federation qualified coaches whom provide a range of training session, racing advice and a warm welcome whatever your standard of fitness.

Our training sessions are specifically designed to cater for everyone who wants to take part. No one is left behind even on the steepest hills and we actively encourage both novice and experienced triathletes to share their experiences.


The aim of the club is to encourage members, whether they be novice, experienced age group racer or international to race over all distances from Super Sprint to Ironman and beyond (for those insane enough to attempt more than an Ironman!!).

On average we organise and run three events a year plus numerous club training events to help members prepare for racing. We are proud of the standards we achieve, the feedback we receive and the numbers entering our events especially since all our events are organised and staffed by volunteers. The only commitment we ask of our members is that they help out at races to ensure we can continue to maintain these high standards.

If you are interested in joining Born2Tri please feel free to come to one of our training sessions to meet us, or complete our membership form found under “contact us” at the top of the page.

Regardless of your level of fitness from someone new to the sport to an accomplished racer, a warm and friendly welcome awaits.
