What is TriFit?
Gesine Junker from Windrush Tri club says: “We’re an easy-going, very friendly and welcoming club who help our members tackle the three triathlon sports – swimming, cycling and running. We have an increasing and diverse membership. However, we’re really aware that, compared to the local population, the club is under-representative of both women and people from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic communities. So we’ve want to show the local community that triathlon is for everyone, and invite more people to give it a go.
