What are my Options?

ATC offers various membership and affiliation options and you can choose those that best meet your requirements:

  • ATC Multisport membership includes participation in the Swim, Bike and Run training sessions and you can get Triathlon, Duathlon and Running licenses with this membership.  There are lower cost options for Students, Members who live far away and Scholars.  Multisport membership automatically includes membership to all the sub-clubs.
  • Atlantic Triathlon Club membership used to be the same as Multisport.  In 2012 we created a special Triathlon membership option to promote affiliation to Triathlon SA and WPTA in conjunction with the recreational license offered by WPTA.  Triathlon membership is offered at a lower rate but members must affiliate with TSA (recreational or full) in order to take this membership option.
  • ATC Swimming membership is for swimmers who would like to join for our canal swim and who would like to affiliate with Swim South Africa and SA Masters Swimming.
  • ATC Cycling membership is for cyclists who would like to join in our training rides and who would like to affiliate with Cycling South Africa.
  • ATC Running membership is for runners who only participate in the club’s run training and who want to get a running license.

Typically our Training Week looks like this:

Tuesday Morning:  Coached Track Running at the Green Point Athletics Track.  This is speed work for road running.

Wednesday Evening:  Coached Track Running at the Green Point Athletics Track.  This is speed work for road running.

Thursday Morning:  Road Bike Ride from the Point Virgin Active.

Friday Morning (Summer - Oct to April): V&A Canal Swim

Saturday Afternoon (Winter - May to Sept): V&A Canal Swim

Weekend sessions are scheduled around events but we typiacally do one long ride and one long run (trail or road) per weekend.

Our weekly training plan is published on this website on the TRAINING page.  Please visit this page to see details for this week.  The individual club MEMEBERSHIP Pages (ATC Swimming, ATC Cycling and ATC Running) will have more details of the various training sessions.
