The current version of Sligo Triathlon Club dates back to 2008. It follows in the footsteps of the 'metalman' club which started with a duathlon in 1977. During the 1980's the sport experienced a boom culminating in Sligo hosting the 'NCF All Ireland' triathlons for many years. After a period in the doldrums during the late 90's and early 00's the sport of triathlon revived and the Sligo Triathlon Club was set up.
With the current boom in the Sport we are now one of the largest clubs in the country, with one of the best coaching set ups. We pride ourselves on our 'Better Together' approach where triathletes of all experience levels and abilities are encouraged to train and race together.
