Richard Prokas conquering The Struggle
Start of the Keswick Triathlon
The Arragon’s Triathlon Club formed in 2008 in a partnership of Arragons Cycles and Freestyle Fitness. Our aim is to bring together a community of people with a passion for running, swimming or biking (and of course triathlon). We are a friendly volunteer club striving to offer great training sessions to everyone – whether you are an Olympic hopeful or just want to have fun with fitness.
We are committed to providing high quality training by using the best facilities in our area, coupled with top class coaches. So get involved, make the most of the sessions and we are sure you will enjoy yourself!
We are based in Penrith and have training sessions in Penrith and Appleby. We have numerous pool based training sessions, club bike rides, brick sessions (bike and then run), open water training, core sessions and other training events.
Since we formed we have had many successes as a club at National level. This includes coming second in the 2013 National club relays, only losing out to Loughborough (one of the Loughborough team was a former member of Arragons).
The most recent success is winning our category in the National championships.
The biggest success is the amount of people within the area who now take part in Triathlons. Of particular note is the thriving junior section with numerous budding young triathletes. In the senior section we have a full range of participants from professional triathletes to those who have found the sport later in life and their achievement is completing events. Club members compete in a full range of events from mini triathlons to full Iron Distance races.
