Mid Argyll Triathlon & Cycle Club is a multisport club with focus on each of the triathlon disciplines – swimming, cycling and running.

mid argyll triathlon & cycle club

With the Mid Argyll Community Pool in Lochgilphead acting as our training hub, we are a small yet thriving multisport club, with particularly active cycling and wild-swimming groups. Our vision is to be a community club that promotes fun, fellowship and friendship... with a healthy dash of good-natured competition.

Promoting a "whole club ethos", we are inclusive to members of all abilities – from novice and late-bloomers through to elite-effort athletes.

We host the annual Mid Argyll Triathlon (sprint distance), Kilberry Sportive, Taynish Dash and various club-confined seasonal duathlons.



A good number of our members don their wetsuits on a weekly basis for a brave dose of wild-swimming in any one of the vast multitude of open-water sea lochs, freshwater lochs or rivers. For the less-hardy among us, MACPool offers Thursday PM and Saturday AM SwimFit training.
Our incredibly active cycle contingent of the club are usually up to something. Whether it’s our indoor (winter) training completing a virtual-Tour-de-France, gravity-defying hill climbs, time trialling or off racing somewhere, one thing is for sure guaranteed – Strava will be buzzing to the sound of our pedals!
Many of our members run with the local JogScotland group. We also have a small number of real running die-hards who regularly compete in anything from hill climbs, trails, 10km, half-marathon, marathon and ultra-marathon distances.
Whether looking to enter your first sprint-distance, seasoned in long-distance, or looking to lend a hand in organising our own annual event, we've got your training buddies and plenty of in-house experience to help you along your tri journey.
