"Joining the club has opened so many opportunities for me and I have made some fantastic new friendships. You really start to feel part of the club very quickly.
No matter what your racing standard - be it novice or old timer - it is so rewarding to race in Hillingdon Triathletes club kit and hear all your club mates shouting encouragement" - Mandy Copas, Hillingdon Triathlete
"I joined Hillingdon Triathletes at the age of 48. I could hardly swim and had never taken part in a triathlon. Now at 53 I qualified and raced in the 2013 Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Las Vegas. The sky is the limit!..." - Jim O'Donovan, Ironman 70.3
"I was a complete novice and practically a non swimmer when I turned up at a Hillingdon Triathletes swimming session, without a clue what to expect. I was immediately made most welcome by everyone and I couldn't wait for the next swim session. The coaching is superb and caters for all abilities and provides so much inspiration. I just couldn't wait to do my first triathlon and get some club kit. This was going to be my first season. I was well and truly hooked – which I showed by taking part in ten triathlons and numerous really friendly club events (Duathlons, Aquathlons and Time Trials) that are held over the season. The whole social side is fantastic. I have a fond memory of the Christmas Dinner and awards night after winning an award for being the most enthusiastic member. I have made so many new friends, and the club has given me such a positive outlook on life. I would recommend Hillingdon Triathletes to anyone..." - Gary Craig, Hillingdon Triathlete
