Welcome to Edinburgh Triathletes

Edinburgh Triathletes is one of the largest and most successful triathlon clubs in Scotland and organises two premier events in the triathlon calendar namely the Gullane Beach triathlon and the New Year's Day triathlon. It is thought that the first triathlon in Scotland was organised by ET members.
