Our aim is to provide a social environment to our members that allows all to feel safe and comfortable at training and social events. We are a LGBT friendly club and promote an accepting and inclusive atmosphere for anyone wishing to join our centrally-based triathlon club.

The Yarra Tri Club was formed in 1996 and has grown to become one of Australia's leading triathlon and multisport clubs. The Club offers its members with educational seminars, organised social functions, race day support, and a friendly and supportive training and racing environment.

Mid Summer Carnival 2018

For the first time the Yarra Tri Club will be hosting a stall at the Midsumma Carnival on Sunday 14 January 2018 at Alexandra Gardens.


We believe that sport and triathlon should be accepting and inclusive for all members of the community, and we will be sharing our stories and passion for triathlon and multisport with the LGBTIQ community at Midsumma.


We would greatly appreciate members of the Yarra Tri Club to volunteer a short amount of their time to represent our friendly club and talk to people that have any questions about our club and the sport. There’s plenty of time to come and help after the race in St Kilda that morning.


Details of the Midsumma Carnival are:

Date: Sunday 14 January 2018

Time: 11:00am to 3:00pm

Location: Alexandra Gardens


Yarra Tri Club will also be participating in the Midsumma Pride March for the first time on Sunday 28 January 2018 in St Kilda.


The Pride March includes organisations, groups and clubs from all backgrounds, including plenty of other sporting clubs, however we could be the first Triathlon club to participate in this great event and we want to be loud and proud to stand out! Remember, you don’t need to be LGBTIQ to show your support and get involved.


We encourage as many club members, family and friends to come along and be a part of the march or just show some support from the sidelines to watch the Pride March.


Details of the Midsumma Pride March are:

Date: Sunday 28 January 2018

Start time: 2:00pm

Location: Fitzroy Street, St Kilda
