Member opinions

“MVH is a really friendly and supportive club.  It was as if I had been a member for years”

“Without the support of the MVH coaches I would not have achieved what I have in triathlon – a GB age grouper racing in Europe”

“They even loaned me a quality road bike to give me an idea of what a racing bike felt like – well different to my old mountain bike!”

Join us

The best way to find out if you want to join is to come along to the Saturday morning swimming sessions or the Sunday morning cycle rides or the Tuesday running night and that way you can see if you like the training session before deciding to join.

Taster sessions

Swimming: We offer one free ‘come and tri’ session to newcomers at the Saturday morning swim session only.  In subsequent sessions, if you like it, we will then ask you to either join the club or thereafter pay the higher non-member session fees.  You will be allowed up to 3 sessions at the non-member rate then you will be required to join the club  (see Swimming below for fee information and the swim section on the website).

Bike training sessions:  You can also attend the bike sessions which are free at weekends, 2 cycle rides depart Barton Waterfront 0900hrs every Sunday. Take a look at the cycling section on the website.

Running sessions:  Every Tuesday at 6pm outside Bannatynes, MVHers set of for a 1 hour interval run.  All abilities welcome, as faster runners loop around at the interval distances which works well for those still working on fast legs!  More info on the run section on the website
