Training with Ocean Lake Tri

We have a number of qualified coaches who will assist with club coaching and training, all holding a BTF certification. We also have a number of England Athletic qualified Run Leaders.

OLT hold regular weekly members training sessions every Saturday at Leybourne Lake, Maidstone and Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys, Canterbury.

These sessions will be taken by our BTF coaches and will include all aspects of triathlon racing. At Leybourne, throughout the cooler months these will be based on the run and bike disciplines with open water sessions starting as the lake temperature increases in the Spring.

Please be aware that we are also likely to have a number of 'impromptu' sessions - please contact us for more details or just to let us know you would like to come along and join us! 


The club host coached pool swim session in both Leybourne and Canterbury throughout the year. See column on the right for full details.

When the water temperature in Leybourne Lake starts warming up, we hold a number of swim coaching sessions for OLT members both adult and juniors. In order to attend these open water swim sessions, members must of passed a swim assessment via Leybourne Water Sports.


There is a club ride taking place on most Sundays, typically starting either at Leybourne Lake or a meeting point in the close area. Details of each ride are sent out each week by the organiser.

Usually a session leader/navigator (not someone who is acting as a coach) will take responsibility for managing the group. However this person is not responsible for the health and safety of the group or the individuals in the group. It is important that all athletes work within their personal comfort levels, abilities and health restraints.


Regular Run training sessions take place throughout winter at Leybourne and Canterbury with a Tuesday evening run session.

Saturday sessions focus on improving run technique and strength. These are group run sessions with routes varying between 5 and 10k. These sessions are advertised each week within our Facebook group.


At Leybourne OLT offer coaching sessions for Junior members aged 8 and over. During the cooler months these are mainly run based sessions with open water swim sessions available in the summer.

Junior training takes place every Saturday, 9.30am at Leybourne.

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for regular updates on what is going on.
