Warringah Waves

Sydney North
2018-2019 Interclub Series


Warringah Triathlon Club

“WTC already race as a club in essence at many of the races around NSW, simply supporting each other getting to races and during the event, but with the introduction of the points score club series there will be a further boost for clubs to coordinate their teams. We will be encouraging our members to race and support at the club series events” (David Wiles, President)


About the Club / History

Warringah Triathlon Club was formed in 1985 to bring together athletes from Sydney’s Northern Beaches who wanted to try the new sport of triathlon. They are proud to be one the most active triathlon clubs in NSW and multiple winner of the Triathlon NSW Club Championships over the years, Ironman Club Champions and having regular representation at World Championships at every distance, but are also incredibly proud of the community feel and camaraderie within the club.

Their vision is to be the premier Australian multisport community of all ages & abilities assisting members to achieve their personal goals. They do this by connecting likeminded people, developing juniors, professional coaching, running quality races & being the number 1 club in NSW!

WTC has approximately 350 members with a focus on catering for all abilities. The club runs new member days every couple of months as a means of introducing new members to each other, to the club committee members and to everything that the club has to offer. These usually take the form of a short introductory training session followed by a BBQ supplied by the club.

Whilst the club has some top quality athletic talent in NSW, most of their members are people who are just looking for a way to keep fit, meet other people and have a bit of fun!!! They actively support their competitors competing at all levels from sprint through to Ironman World Championships.

At Warringah Triathlon Club, they like to offer their members choice when it comes to training, so they affiliate and work with a number of local coaching providers, who can offer structured training sessions designed to cater for members of all abilities.

Warringah Waves Season Preview Q&A

Athlete to watch and why? A talented amateur athlete from your club Phoebe Fear (40-44 Female), gives everything and is hard to beat!!

Who is your club Coach/captain/team leader and info? We will be appointing a Club race captains for each event to share the responsibility around when we know the schedule. Race captains will be coordinating and encouraging members to get to the events and will be the clubs point of contact for that race. Once the calendar comes out we will set the captains up.

Rookie to watch? Chris Wallace – A fairly new member who swims, bikes and runs fast. Just moved to Australia from the UK, the ability to train all winter will allow him to develop further faster!!

Club ambassador and why?  Grantley Smith – He’s at nearly all the club races, club champs and regular competitive age grouper in sprint to half ironman races, always in the club kit.  He is reliable hauling the club tent and equipment to races. Grantley is also a notorious social member and enjoys letting his hair down post race! He manages all this whilst being a celebrity Water Research Engineer, so he is also handy when assessing the swim course.

Club other than your own who you think might win your Interclub Series and why? Balmoral Tri Club and Northern Suburbs Tri Club are both admirable clubs that they have a healthy competitive relationships with and between us all have a very strong inter club region. Historically Balmoral have been one of the most competitive clubs in NSW, whilst we know that Northern Suburbs has some great athletes !  The expectation is that Balmoral and Warringah will probably fighting it out for the series, but I expect it to be very close between the three.


Training Offered

In addition, the club organises a number of informal training sessions on a weekly basis throughout summer and winter. For more information:
