Windrush Triathlon Club is a super friendly club who love the three sports of triathlon: swimming, cycling and running
The club's name is firmly linked to the history of the local area – the Windrush Square in Brixton. This public square was built in 1998 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the ship 'HMT Empire Windrush' who brought the first large group of West Indian migrants to the United Kingdom, the square represents both the heart and bond of the community through being a venue for local events.
Ten years later in 2008, the first Aquathlon was setup at Brockwell Lido by a group of friends to help bring together the local community through the love of sports and they adeptly named it ‘The Windrush Aquathlon’. It was a great success which led to the birth of The Windrush Triathlon Club and we still come together every year to put on the event.

Our core location is at Brockwell Lido and we also train at the Herne Hill Velodrome, Clapham Leisure Centre, Tooting and Battersea Athletics Tracks, Streatham Leisure Centre and JAGs in Dulwich.
