About SBR Tri Club


The Swim Bike Run Triathlon Club of St. Louis is a group of multisport athletes of all ages and walks of life. This club was created to further the sport of Triathlon in the St. Louis area, through strong team sportsmanship, mentorship to new members, volunteerism in the community and just having fun doing the sport we love! We meet monthly and hold social events and training sessions throughout the year. We promote safe training and encourage all members to train at their level and enjoy the benefits of healthy living.

While we have many seasoned racers, we are always looking for new members and new athletes who want to try the sport of triathlon. The goal of the club is to provide training activities, mutual support, friendly competition and camaraderie for all our athletes as well as having a social side for the club members. The club is committed to the goals of all athletes — veterans or novice, sprint racer or Ironman. Join us! We would love to have you.

Potential members are always welcome to come to a club social to meet the team and learn more about the club. Just e-mail us, and we’ll let you know about our upcoming events.

Are there tryouts?
No, all are welcome.

I have never done a triathlon…can I still join?
Definitely. One of the main goals of this club is to expose people to the sport of triathlon. Veteran members are more than willing to help out the newer ones. One thing you’ll find about triathlon is that most people are friendly and excited to share their love of this sport.

I’m just starting out. Will there be people that I can train with?
Yes. Triathlon is a great way to get in shape. We have people of all abilities in our club and workouts are flexible for all levels. It is very likely that you will find other club members who are the same speed as you in all three aspects of triathlon.

How do I get a uniform?
Easy! Simply sign up for FULL membership. Not only will you get your own uniform (we call it a kit), you will also get access to the protected areas of our website and be able to participate in our events!

I plan to do more than one triathlon this year. How can I become a member of USA Triathlon to save on registration fees?
Here’s a link to sign up: https://membership.usatriathlon.org/Login.aspx?i=1

I purchased a one day USAT membership for a previous race. Can I apply this one day membership towards the purchase of an annual membership?
Yes. According to the USAT website, you need to send in a copy of the one-day membership along with the annual membership application and payment for the remaining membership fees. If you have questions related to this or other issues with USAT, please contact them directly at membership@usatriathlon.org or call them at 719-955-2807.

Is the Triathlon Club separate from the Swim Bike Run Store?
Yes. Swim Bike Run is our title sponsor and provides great discounts on gear and technical support, training opportunities and even hosts some of our meetings/social events for SBR Tri Club members. For this reason, any club apparel located at the store is only sold to active club members and is required to be paid for separately from other store merchandise.

Is Swim Bike Run Triathlon Club of St Louis a non-profit organization?
Yes. It is the club’s intention to use the funds collected to promote the sport of triathlon by teaching and encouraging new athletes. We also encourage our members to participate and volunteer in community charity events.
