About the Club / History
Balmoral Triathlon Club have seen World Champions, Elite Age-Groupers and weekend warriors come through the club. We have a clubhouse down at the stunning Balmoral Beach and we train all year round.
Balmoral is a club that encourages participation, having fun and overall enjoying the wonderful sport that is Triathlon. Currently they have 400 members
They pride themselves on being a family club and ensuring they are inclusive, look after their own and support each another.
They are a strong part of the North Shore community. During the week you will see them in Mosman coffee shops frequented by Balmoral cyclists, and on weekends they flood to the beach where they attract a lot of attention during their Saturday swim sessions.
Balmoral run training sessions during the week and on the weekend in run, swim and bike to keep you fit and active year round. For more information: http://www.balmoraltriclub.org.au/btc-sessions/
Balmoral Purple Cobras Season Preview Q&A
Athlete to watch and why? Look out for Hannalore Paxton at the Gold Coast World Champs. She is their oldest club member and soon to be their newest World Champion (they hope!).
Who is their club Coach? EnergyLink have coached the club for nearly 2 decades. They are synonymous with Balmoral and they are heavily indebted to Bruce and Chrissie Thomas, who are both former Australian Ironman Champions.
Rookie to watch? Watch out for our young female guns Jess Raupach and Laura Van Den Honert who are rocking the World Champs in their rookie years.
Club ambassador? Although Owain Matthews is part of the coaching team, he is our most influential athlete. He has raced at Kona, won his Age Group at the 70.3 World Champs and will be racing at this years Gold Coast Worlds. He is humble, genuine and is always looking out for people within the club to offer advice, tips and gear.
Club other than your own who you think might win your Interclub Series and why? We are worried about the Purple team from the North.
Event you are most looking forward to on the Calendar? We love Big Husky and can’t wait to get down there again this year!
