Welcome to the CPT website
We are a friendly and sociable club with over 200 adult members based in and around the Crystal Palace area. We also have a very active and successful Junior section, with 75+ members.
We have three coached swim nights - Tuesdays at St Joseph's College, Upper Norwood, Thursdays at Forest Hill Pools and Fridays at Trinity, an uncoached swim at Crystal Palace on Mondays, a Club run on Wednesday evenings, meeting at Crystal Palace Station for a road run or track session, monthly Saturday morning sessions and a Club ride on Sunday mornings. We also have member only sessions at HHV throughout the winter on Tuesday evenings and an early morning swim at Crystal Palace on Thursdays. You can decide how hard and how often you want to train and all abilities are catered for. See the Training sessions pages for further details.
We have members of all standards. Most members participate in sprint and Olympic distance races, with a growing number in middle distance and Ironman. We also have age-groupers who take part in the major races, both in the UK and abroad, including the National Championships. So don't be put off if you're not very good at one of the sports, you'll get lots of encouragement from existing members and don't forget it's never too late to learn!
Our Club Championships are held at sprint, standard, middle and long distance, in 2014 East GrinsteadnSprint, Worthing Standard Distance, Midnight Man Middle Distance and any long distance/Ironman race. The duathlon Club Championship will be held at the Jekyll & Hyde Duathlon. We also have Novice and Aquathlon championship races and a Club league, with age-group categories, to give all members a chance of glory.
Details about joining the club can be found on the Membership page.
We take training seriously but enjoy it at the same time and hold a number of social activities throughout the year.
CPT organises the annual Crystal Palace Triathlon at the National Sports Centre. The 2015 race will be held on Sunday 10 May.
