Welcome to Edinburgh Triathletes

Edinburgh Triathletes seeks to provide an inclusive training environment within one of the largest and most successful triathlon clubs in Scotland. We organise two premier events in the triathlon calendar namely the Gullane Beach triathlon and the New Year's Day triathlon, and it is thought that the first triathlon in Scotland was organised by ET members.

If you would like to find out more about Triathlons or Edinburgh Triathletes take a look at our 'how to get started page', or contact us by email.


Laura F has restarted the "Trumpet", which has periodic updates about many events and other goodies. These are emailed to ET members and are also accumulated in the secure 'Members' area along with older Trumpets (generally from Liz R) and other ET documents. So, if you have participated in any events (including non-Triathlons) please let Laura know.

Sat 29 Apr - Sat 6 May: Warm weather training Barcelona. See club emails and contact Mike B if you would like to secure one of the platinum-plated places.
