Tri2 Values

Our love of triathlon grew when we found a partner to share it with. Our enjoyment of triathlon grew when we found a triathlon club to train with. Our triathlon results improved the moment we found a coach to guide and support us. Triathlon may be an individual sport but we are better together. We want to inspire a community of triathletes to dare to dream by offering coaching as well as sharing our journey and everything we learn along the way.
