About us

Since launching in 2003, Ful-on Tri has gone from strength to strength. But we have not forgotten who we are. Everybody is welcome, regardless of background, ability or experience.

Our training sessions cater to all levels, from total novices to age-group winners and pro athletes, and everybody in between. Thanks to our club’s supportive atmosphere we inspire each other to go that little bit further, hit new PBs and achieve our goals.

All of our coaches and committee members are volunteers, offering high-quality advice, outstanding training programmes and a wealth of triathlon experience. Plus, we’re one of the rare London triathlon clubs to offer an all-inclusive membership.

There is also a brilliant social scene at Ful-on Tri. You can expect weekly pub nights after training, as well as post-race meet-ups, summer shindigs, an annual Christmas party and lots, lots more.

We’re proud of our 50/50 gender balance too, which helps makes for a cohesive, inclusive and representative environment in which to train, race and socialise.

Above all, we strive to ensure every member of Ful-on Tri feels included, supported and valued. We love to share our knowledge, from swimming technique tips to the best chocolate brownie recipes, as we feel there is no better way to achieve new personal bests and create fantastic friendships.

A little history

It all began in 2003. After attending a swim training programme, a group of Fulham-based friends decided to combine their efforts to make it easier to race and train together.

Under the guidance of triathlon coaches Alan Hanley, Chris Spink and Julia Tregaskis our club was born. Kudos to Gareth Davies, too, who cleverly combined his geographical knowledge with his passion for the sport to pen the name, Ful-on Tri triathlon club.

Siobhan Brownlow used her artistic talent to create our logo, while yellow and black were picked as our club colours. Continuing to adorn our kit, the combination is now synonymous with Ful-on Tri. 

What is now known as Virgin Active Fulham Pools was chosen as the London base and the first formal Ful-on Tri session took place on 10th April 2003, long before the Brownlee brothers were even known to the general public.
