Welcome to the CPT website
We are a friendly and sociable club with over 150 members in and around the Crystal Palace area. We also have a very active and successful Junior section.
We have three coached swim nights - Tuesdays at St Joseph's College, Upper Norwood, Thursdays at Forest Hill Pools, Forest Hill and Fridays at Trinity, an uncoached swim at Crystal Palace on Mondays, a Club run on Wednesday evenings, meeting at Crystal Palace Park for a road run or track session, a Saturday morning session and a Club cycle on Sunday mornings. See the Training sessions pages for further details. You can decide how hard and how often you want to train and all abilities are catered for.
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 2013 Thorpe Sprint, Bewl Standard Distance, Sussex Middle Distance and any long distance/Ironman race. This year's duathlon Club Championship will be held at the Dragon Slayer Duathlon. We also have Novice and Aquathlon championship race 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 2013 race will be held on Sunday 19 May.
