Sydney Triathlon Group

“I’m excited by the prospect of some friendly rivalry with our local clubs, some will be smarting having been knocked down at Orange this year. I’m expecting this new comp to excite our members to get out there and perform for the club” (Steve Ellis, President)


About the Club / History

STG is a triathlon club based in Sydney’s eastern suburbs and CBD.

Setup in 2000 by Shaun Wadham as a training group, the club has prospered for 18 years with membership and sporting success at all-time highs. Shauno retired in March 2017 with STG becoming a non profit member run club with a committee led by Steve Ellis as President partnering with Swift Multisport’s Jarrad Adams and Pro Triathlete Sam Douglas to run all of the coaching services.

STG has excelled on a sporting level in the last couple of years in 2017 winning Division 3 of the NSW Club Championships and in 2018 stepping up to DIV 2 and ranking on top of ALL Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs triathlon clubs.

Their members are people who want to improve their athletic potential by training for sporting goals, mainly in triathlon but also in standalone cycling, swimming and running events. They have a wide range of abilities – from first time triathletes to highly experienced Ironmen and Kona competitors. Ages range from 20s through to 60s and they are roughly an equal gender split. In their club newbies train side by side with 15+ year veterans.

STG has a welcoming culture and a strong social aspect. They take our sport seriously, but we also pride ourselves on a relaxed club vibe and love of coffee.


Training Sessions Offered

They run 10 coached sessions across every day of the week, 4 rides, 4 runs, 3 swims.
