Tuff Fitty was established in 1991 and held its first AGM in November of that year.

This set the standard for the club whereby a committee of members runs the club for the benefit of its members backed by a written constitution. Being one of the earliest Triathlon Clubs in the South of England, membership growth was initially rapid.

The club has grown to its present level having 150 members of all abilities from beginner to National level. The club holds its own championship that is open to all members.

Interested in joining?

Our current membership fee is for individuals at £40 per person with the club year running from 1st November. Interested parties would be welcome to attend a couple of training sessions first to see if our club is suitable prior to deciding to join. Apart from the membership fee we have to levy a charge for both the swims and running track, where we hire facilities, but most outdoor training such as cycles and runs, there are no further charges.

Members travel to club sessions from across West Sussex and there is a wide range of experience and ages to give advice in the form of other club members, the committee or coaching team. Currently Tuff Fitty stage two swims, three running sessions and a cycle ride per week. Seasonal activities include Circuit Training, Open Water Swimming and a Cycle Chain Gang and Turbo training. We also stage club races, socials and other activities during the year. Tuff Fitty are a British Triathlon affiliated club, but are also affiliated to Cycle Time Trials, UK Athletics and also Sussex County Athletics in order that we can bring an extensive programme to Tuff Fitty members. Please feel able to send an email if you require further details.

The continued growth of Tuff Fitty and expansion of our current activities are such that we do not have the facilities to be able to include children in our membership. It is therefore with regret that we have to advise Tuff Fitty Tri Club are an adult club only.
