WHO CAN JOIN?

  • Anyone 15 years or older
  • Participants need to be able to demonstrate a 100m continuous swim unassisted for safety.
  • Anyone interested in a challenge
  • Beginners are welcome, however, a basic front crawl ability is required. 

DO I NEED TO BE A TRIATHLETE TO JOIN THE CLUB?

  • No.  Anyone can join and many people join just for fitness and/or community & social connection.
  • You are also welcome if you only want to swim and we have registration options available to you.  We practice all strokes in the Bios Club and although front crawl is our primary stroke, we are similar to a masters swim club that also likes to cycle and run!

WHAT ABOUT RUNNING & CYCLING WITH THIS CLUB? 

We are a swim club for the most part, however group members often self organize for Running & Cycling.  

WHAT DO I NEED TO JOIN THIS CLUB

  • Swim suit & goggles at minimum.  We prefer you to have swim paddles and fins as well.
  • A valid Triathlon Alberta membership provides you with insurance for all activities with us and we strongly encourage participants to have this.  A 2023 ATA membership is available HERE.  If you do not purchase a Triathlon Alberta Membership, you will not be insured during your activities with Bios Triathlon Club.

WHAT GEAR WILL I NEED?

  • Swim gear including athletic swimsuit, fins, paddles, pull buoy, goggles and cap.  If you don’t have these items or need advice on what to get please contact us.  Or visit trihub.ca for swimming & cycling gear and a Tech Shop location for running shoes.

  • We try to meet everyone where they are at in terms of fitness so that everyone has a challenge without feeling overwhelmed.

ABOUT BÍOS

The name Bíos is one of the two words the ancient Greeks had for life - Zoé and Bíos.  Bíos described the activities of life, while Zoé meant something more like organic life.  We chose to recapture the original meaning of Bíos, as the name that describes what we are most interested in accomplishing as a sports club: living a healthy lifestyle.  Therefore, at Bíos Triathlon Club we train not just for competition as an end-in-itself but also as a community, training for the benefits of a healthy, active life.  We are training for life!
