Club Affiliations

As well as our primary affiliation with Triathlon England, the club is also affiliated with Cycling Time Trials (CTT).

Affiliation with the CTT enables members to race with insurance cover at cycling time trials such as PETTS or Southport TT under the Tri Preston name and wear club kit with sponsors on. There is no additional individual fee for this affiliation.


We are proud to have two sponsors; Paul Sanderson Physiotherapy and Bill Nickson Cycles.
