Club Volunteering

Help Support GTC

How is it possible that we can offer an annual membership for only $175 that includes close to 100 coached workouts, access to the best open water swim coach in Ontario, pool entry and winter access to the best spin studio in our city?

Volunteerism – that’s how!

Our club was founded by a small group of community triathletes who volunteered their time to operate the club. In its early days, club administration was simple with only a small handful of members and an informal training schedule. Today, our membership is more than 70 annual members! Administering a club of this size and coordinating a high-quality training schedule takes considerable effort.

If you would like to support the Guelph Triathlon Club in any way, please contact GTC.

Thank You GTC Volunteers!

We are fortunate to have an incredible volunteer executive committee to plan and execute all of the club’s administrative tasks as well as plan and coordinate GTC’s high quality triathlon training program. Our dedicated volunteer coaches help deliver this program over the course of the year.

We are also fortunate to have a membership that is generous with their time and willing to share their knowledge. Recent examples include Claire Rinne who offered her time to prepare and deliver a talk on core strength at our recent GTC social. Donna Bryson opened up her home to host this event. James Seery who is volunteering his time to coordinate and lead the DIY bike repair workshops.

We need volunteers to help from early morning until mid-afternoon on Sunday August 27, 2017.

If you want to see a huge amount of cuteness, you won’t want to miss this race! Each competitor is supported by one volunteer in the transition zone. We typically need to have 10 volunteers in the transition zone at a time and we these future triathletes with whatever they need – putting on their socks, tying their shoes, lifting their bikes, etc., just get them to the bike start!
