Viceroys Triathlon Club is based in and around the leafy Surrey suburbs of Walton on Thames. Founded in 2006/2007 by a group of like-minded individuals who wanted to form their own relaxed and friendly triathlon club. In 2011 the club was re designed by original founder member Mark Yeoman who moved the club from a group of mates to the latest and one of the best clubs in Surrey.
Our members range from novices through to the more seasoned pro. Members race over every distance from sprint to Ironman. For a young club, we are very proud that a growing number of our members have represented the GB age group team at European and World Championship Level over every format of the sport.
As the club has grown, so too has its members’ interests and we now consider ourselves as a multi sports club with members regularly taking part in triathlons, duathlon, aquathons aquabikes, cycling, open water swimming and running races.
Where did the Viceroys name come from?
Well, the definition of a Viceroy is a person who is appointed to rule, whether it’s a country or province.
Sounds great doesn’t it- but the real truth is that our founder, Gary Brine used to be a member of a scooter club in south London in his youth and they were called The Viceroys – which sounds a little less impressive.
The ethos of the club is a simple one, to ‘just have fun and enjoy it!’ We should never forget that we are doing this for either a physical challenge, simply to have fun or the enjoyment of hanging out with friends and mates at races. After all it’s not a full time job.
The club works by getting like-minded people together for a group ride on that cold winter’s morning, or head down to the local pool or lake for a structured swimming session in the early summer sun.
The club are members of British Triathlon Federation, British Cycling and Cycling Time Trials. This enables all members to benefit from the governing bodies’ benefits. Members are encouraged to individually join their governing bodies to take advantage of the benefits that individual membership offers.
Whether you just want to find a new group of friends to train with or you want to improve on last season’s results, then Viceroys TC is the club for you.
