Swim, bike, run once a week throughout March is the pledge that Rugby Triathlon Club is asking the women of Rugby.

In support of the Triathlon England ‘This Girl Can…Do Triathlon’ initiative, Rugby Triathlon Club is making training sessions available for any ladies that want to make that pledge and start on the journey towards doing triathlon.

To kick start the pledge or keep motivation going participants can take part in the following sessions - Sunday early evening swim at Rugby School Sports Centre, Monday night run at the Rugby Athletic Track, next to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Centre, Thursday night run from Rugby School Sports Centre and Saturday morning cycle from Rugby School Sports Centre. Just follow the instructions on the club’s webpage to book your sessions (

Rugby Triathlon Club has joined forces with Rugby School Sports Centre and the Breeze cycling network to deliver this Triathlon England (West Midlands) initiative. More information and loads of helpful hints and tips can be found on the ‘This Girl Can…Do Triathlon’ Facebook page

“We’re passionate about triathlon and would love to help local woman take their first steps into this incredible sport,” said Rugby Triathlon Club Chairman Mike Smallwood. “Our coaches are knowledgeable and friendly and can help answer all sorts of questions related to swimming, running or cycling, book your slot and get started.”
