Who are you?

We are the World Famous Cronulla Triathlon Club, est. 1985

Funnily enough, we are located in Cronulla NSW. Home of world champion triathletes, the best coffee this side of Calabria (thanks Grind Espresso) and the much-coveted 1979 Amco Cup.

What type of club (not for profit type/ squad type/ coaching group type)?

Definitely not-for-profit. We pride ourselves on being the friendly club, with members ranging from toddlers to 85+

How many members?

Over 450 paid up and proud members, including some of the biggest names in Triathlon. Welch, Jones, Macca, & Crowie are all life members of Cronulla.

What services and / or sessions do you offer and are they free or charged?

The Wednesday night run through Cronulla has been going since Mick Maroney was setting course records on his Dinky trike, and there are also weekly rides through the beautiful Royal National Park. We hold Friday night summer swims around Shark Island in summer, regular TT rides out to Kurnell and back, and the President’s own Tuesday morning Track Tortures at Sylvania. These are all free.

The Club holds races including Winter duathlons, and Summer Triathlons at Waratah Park, plus during Summer there’s a monthly Friday night dip’n’dash at Gunnamatta Park. These are all less than ten dollars each, open to anyone with a TA membership and cater for all ages.
