Welcome to Ocean Lake Triathlon - your NEW triathlon club at Leybourne Lake!
We are your new triathlon club based at Leybourne Lake (a.k.a 'Ocean Lake') in Kent. Our lake is a very popular venue for triathlon and swimming - some of you may have even raced here in the past. We are offering a number of benefits for our growing membership this year - including free group coaching sessions and discount in various shops. Please have a look at our Membership Benefits section.
Leybourne lake has been awarded 'green flag' status since 2007 (this is the national benchmark of excellence for parks and open spaces) and OLT provide the qualified Swim Coaching and Open Water Assessments. See our Coaching & Training page for further details.
OLT hosted 8 races events at Leybourne Lake last year and we are now have our race calendar for 2013 confirmed. Our 2013 season will consist of six Saturday sprint distance triathlon events and 3 mid-week aquathon events. Check out our Race Calendar 2013 page .
Our weekly training sessions are still in full swing. We meet up every Saturday at Leybourne Lake (normally at 09:30) to practice our run skills and now that the water temperature in the lake has risen, we have started group swim coaching .
We also meet-up every Thursday evening at 5pm at Simon Langton Boys school in Canterbury, and also at Larkfield Leisure Centre on a Thursday night at 9pm for group swim coaching.
If you are a member of David Lloyd at Kings Hill, our swim coach G holds a 'masters' session for established swimmers from 8pm to 9pm on a Monday and Thursday evening.
Contact Us if you would like to come along and give it a tri!
OLT are also very pleased to be able to offer, two FREE training sessions to novice or first-time triathletes. The training will be conducted by our BTF qualified coaches and may cover all three disciplines of racing together with transition techniques. Unfortunately, OLT can only extend our offer of free training to two sessions for insurance reasons, so participants will be asked to join the club if they wish to continue training with us.
Please Contact Us for more information or to book an appointment with one of our BTF coaches.

We look forward to seeing to soon!
