Loughborough Triathlon Performance Centre (LTPC) is a performance focused training environment with the ultimate aim of developing Senior Olympic and Paralympic triathletes to the highest level. The Centre has been developed through a partnership with Loughborough University and British Triathlon and caters for World Class Programme Olympic and Paralympic triathletes, high performing student triathletes, talented Regional or England talent squad athletes who achieve the squad entry conditions and full-time triathletes who gain entry via the LTPC selection process. Squad members participate in elite level competition including World Championships, Commonwealth Games, WTS, WPE, World Cup and Continental Cup races, alongside National Series and BUCS events.
LTPC is a high performance squad for those that show real commitment to succeeding in triathlon. There is a limit to the number of athletes in this squad in order to give the individual attention we believe is paramount to realise potential. Please refer to the application process to see the how to apply .
Athletics Union Triathlon Club
In addition to the LTPC squad, Loughborough Students Union runs an Athletics Union club (AU club) which has 65 members. This squad does not have entry standards. The AU Squad allows those with less experience, aspirations in non-drafting triathlon, or those who just want to have fun, to develop. The club regularly sends the largest team to University Championship events, and has produced Age Group World Champions, alongside providing a social environment that encourages new participants.
LTPC Development coach Gavin Smith and Assistant Coach Luke Watson are linked to the AU triathlon club and will identify developing athletes who will benefit from being linked into LTPC squad training and workshops. LTPC coaches provide development opportunities for the incumbent AU coach to link into the LTPC sessions where possible.
