Townsville Tri Club prides itself on having one of the lowest triathlon club memberships around at only $160 for Club and Triathlon Queensland Membership combined. We’re a not-for-profit organisation, so all of our funds go back to supporting our Club and the wonderful people that are part of it. We ensure all our training sessions and club races are kept low cost.
