There are plenty of opportunities to compete with BRAT, either as individuals or part of a team.  We compete as a club in regional and national running competitions, with some of our top athletes going up against the best from other clubs locally and nationally.  We are proud of the performance of all BRAT athletes and work hard to ensure there is a place in a team for anyone who wants one.  Come and join in, it’s a great feeling!

BRAT Club competes in a huge range of disciplines throughout the year.  Being such a diverse club means that there is always an opportunity to pull on the iconic kit, and get out racing.   We have huge numbers of members racing in running events, both on and off road.  We have junior and senior athletes competing across the year.  Importantly, we will aim to promote our attendance at key TRIATHLON and multi-sport events, as many members have bespoke aims across all of the different distances of TRIATHLON, and it’s good to know that there will be a BRAT presence at an event you may be interested in.   For 2020, our key events are:

  • Triathlon Relays – August Bank Holiday Weekend.
  • Others to be confirmed – watch this space…

We have a variety of coached sessions in swimming, offering triathletes the chance to develop their technique, speed and confidence. Qualified coaches work across the region to develop club swimmers in preparation for racing in triathlon and open water swimming.


Many members of the Club are active cyclists.  We are working on re-establishing regular club rides for 2020.


The Club has a history of top quality runners in cross-country and road, as well as track. Club running sessions are some of the most social and we support local events with both participants and volunteers.
