Valley Striders Triathlon Club (VSTC) was formed in 2014 as a natural progression following the successful expansion from the running club into cycling and duathlon. The club covers all forms of multi-sport including triathlon, duathlon and aquathlon at all distances.
Since then, the club has secured many successes on the local and national scene, with numerous individual age group and category wins, even more podiums and athletes qualifying for the GBR age group teams and winning at that level too.
Importantly, we have a presence at most of the local events, especially at the ITU Leeds triathlon for which have been one of the larger clubs since the inception of the event.
The club is a very friendly and open group, catering for all levels, and has attracted a number of athletes who were otherwise unaffiliated and now feel part of the team.
All Valley Striders adult members (whether in the running or cycling club) are invited to join VSTC as it is included as part of your membership. You can select “Valley Striders Triathlon Club” in most race entries and be a part of the team.
VSTC is affiliated to the British Triathlon Federation (BTF) and it is possible to join BTF as an individual and get a saving of just over 20% on the membership fee. Membership of BTF brings various benefits including reduced race entry fee and more importantly insurance cover.
