The Nicosia Tri Club Nireas welcomes members of all levels – from beginners to professionals. Whether you want to improve your fitness level, train for your first sprint triathlon race, or prepare for a half or full distance Ironman or any other races of your choice – you are welcome to join us.

Founded in 1993, we are the oldest Tri club in Cyprus and a founding member of the Cyprus Triathlon Federation.

Triathlon – triathlon is what keeps us together.  Some members only swim, others do two or all three sports.  Many of the club’s athletes are following the full triathlon program from coach Dimos Paps.  

Swimming – we offer 5 sessions of swimming per week led by Vasilis Scouridis. Vasilis taught many generations of swimmers in Cyprus throughout his coaching career. Swim training takes place at the Nicosia Municipal Swimming Pool (25m, heated) and at the Grammar School (also 25m heated pool). Occasionally we meet for group open water swims by the sea.

Cycling – we often meet up at Ratio Cycling Club for indoor cycling and on Sundays we arrange group rides in the areas of Machairas, Lythrodontas, Mitsero etc.

Running – most of our athletes follow their own training programs in running. Usually it’s a part of their triathlon program or an individual plan from their own coach. From time to time we run together in parks, nearby mountains and go together to running races in Cyprus.

Community – besides training, you will meet our members – a like-minded community of people who genuinely love sports. We often go for coffee after Saturday morning swims, occasionally get together for a drink and use every opportunity to talk about sport watches, bikes, nutrition and upcoming races. If you are moving to Cyprus and do triathlon or some of the sports already, joining a sports club is the best way to meet new people and discover what Cyprus can offer through cycling, swimming and running.

How club's schedule works

We aim to provide as many swimming sessions as possible to accommodate everyone’s busy schedule.  Swimming 2-3 sessions per week is usually sufficient, so you don’t have to attend every session, but come only for those that are convenient. If you are new to the club, make sure you read the swimming pool rules!

Running and cycling depend on each athletes program and goals. If you are training for your first 5k, your requirements are very different from those who train for full distance Ironman. Some athletes run at the track, others follow their training program on their own. 

For cycling sessions – we try to arrange groups cyclings on Sunday mornings with whoever wants to join the long rides. We also try to meet for indoor cycling sessions at Ratio Cycling Club.  Indoor sessions are an excellent way to improve your cycling skills in a safe environment at convenient hours, preparing you for the long rides and races.

Is Triathlon for me?

Some of us are swimmers, others came from running or cycling background and then improved in other sports. Some members practice only one or two sports while others participate all three – swimming, cycling and running. Some take part in triathlon races, others train only for health benefits. We have both – professionals and amateurs training and racing side by side. You can tailor club’s training to your personal requirements. With triathlon, you need to make an effort and find time to be active, be in good health to withstand training activities and you should love the sports. If you wish to find out if our program is the right fit for your training requirements, contact us to discuss.
