How much do I have to train with GCTri?

Unlike some of the clubs across the Hudson, you can choose to be involved as much as you want! Some people join the club for the track workouts or just to enjoy going on the group rides. On the other end of the spectrum, some people join to train specifically for Ironmans, 70.3s, Olympic and sprint triathlons. There’s bound to be someone with similar goals as you so it’s a great place to train for everybody.

Do we get discounts from club sponsors?

YES! Our sponsors and the discount codes can be found on our member discount page.
In addition, many race companies have offered us codes for discounted registrations.

How does the club calendar work?

Every member can post races or workouts to the club calendar. We encourage you check the events that you will be attending for a couple reasons. If you check that you are attending a group workout, the leader will know who to expect and even wait for. If multiple people are racing the same event, you can put together car pools or perhaps organize group accommodations for travel trips.

How is the club run?

The club is a non-profit organization run by a dedicated crew of Board Members and Committee Chairs. You can meet the board and committee chairs on our BOD Page

How can I get club gear?

GCTri beanies and visors are available for purchase year round. An order for club t-shirts, tanks, track jackets, and running singlets will be placed in February, so keep an eye out! Club uniforms are made by Hincapie. The 1st order for 2016 is now closed; however, the club will place another order in the fall.

I’m new to triathlon. Do you have a beginner program?

Through our mentor program, we could pair beginners with mentors to answer questions about training and racing. On top of that, many of our group workouts are beginner friendly!

What does the club do for fun?

Like all good triathlon clubs, the members of GCTri like to kick back and enjoy some beverages when we’re not training. We have a social committee that plans events. Out-of-spandex events include monthly happy hours, socials, picnics, and a great end of the year holiday party. We also organize group bike rides and runs to local breweries and bars.

Does the club want my race results?

YES! After participating in any race, please post your results on our Race Results Page. We want to give you the kudos you deserve, we want our sponsors to see how successful we are, and we want other members to see which races you like.

How can I become more involved?

If you have a great idea for the club or want to volunteer your time please contact us at We are always looking for more people to help us round out our committees.

What are the 2016 club races?

How do I join the mailing list?

When you pay your dues and create a Racereach account, you are added to the mailing list. You can send email to club members directly from the Racereach webpage.

I have friends interested in joining, can they attend a workout before becoming a member?

Yes! They are welcome to join us on a group ride or run. They won’t be able to RSVP on the events calendar since they aren’t a member. We ask that they limit this to a couple workouts – it’s not fair to our members who pay to enjoy the same benefits.

Is the club involved in the IRONMAN TriClub program?

Yes! Be sure to go to the IRONMAN website and create an account. In your Athlete Profile, add Gold Coast Triathlon Club as your Tri Club Affiliation.  (we get credit for you racing & volunteering). Last year, we ended up 25th out of 151 teams in our division in the country and also took 2nd place as a team at both IRONMAN 70.3 Syracuse and IRONMAN Mont-Tremblant.
