We are really pleased to be part of and promote the campaign to get more women involved in Sport.

Let’s Go Girls – Inspiring more women to get moving across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

Women in Triathlon

We are very lucky at Ely Tri Club that we have plenty of women who are trailblazing in Triathlon. Many of our female triathletes  have completed IronMan, ultra marathons, long distance open water swims, and great feats of cycling endurance.

Ely Tri Club also supports complete beginners who achieve things they would never have thought possible.

I know I’m one of them and as a result of Ely Tri Club coaching and encouragement I successfully completed a Sprint Tri and a 10k swim last year in the River Dart. When I first came the idea of a triathlon was way beyond me –  I could barely manage 12 lengths of the pool let alone the run and the bike.

If more women want to participate in Triathlon we are the place to start. We are proud to be part of Let’s Go Girls

But let’s not forget what Serena said:

Serena  received  praise and admiration after her response to a journalist who asked about her being “one of the greatest female athletes of all time”.

She replied: “I prefer the word ‘one of the greatest athletes of all time'”.
