The club also recently celebrated its British Triathlon Club Mark renewal. The award lasts for three years and demonstrates that the club once again has met a series of defined national standards.

Triathlon England said: “the award shows that Mansfield Triathlon Club is well managed, is safe and has an active programme of coaching and activities for members and the local community to enjoy.”

The club provides both junior and adult training and is always keen to welcome new members.
