We are also running FREE sessions on Tuesday mornings between 6-8 am, when we have two lanes all to ourselves. Stephen Greene runs a structured session between 6-7 am. I stress that this session is free, gratis and for nothing.


The club enjoys the benefit of the expert advice from Gary McCaffery and Diane Lee, who coaches athletes of all standards up to and including Commonwealth Games competitors. Our main swimming session is held on Wednesdays, 9-10 pm, in Buxton swimming pool in Pavilion Gardens. The cost per session is £5 or you can purchase a ten-session ticket for £45 if you are a member of the club. It is exceedingly good value at £5 a session, and even better at £4.50! I hope as many as possible will join in the sessions. The more the merrier! Gary and Diane has worked wonders with the club members in the past. Your swimming will improve significantly if you stick with it!


Henry Foxhall and Mick Clarkson have been running a swim session at Hathersage pool on a Thursday night. The sessions will start up again in Spring 2016. More details to follow at a later date.

Thursday Turbo Sessions

Turbo sessions can be soul destroying if they are done on one's own. The club therefore runs a Thursday Turbo session, which runs from 19:00 until 20:15. Please see Mat for further details. If you don't have a turbo trainer there may be some that you can borrow, so please ask.

The weekly coached turbo sessions start again this Thursday at the new venue: Buxton Rugby club (between Harpur Hill and Brierlow Bar). It's got space for more people, showers and a bar upstairs - what more could you ask for!? To help cover the cost of the room hire we are now going to charge just £2 per session. I'm sure you'll agree that this is very reasonable. So that we can get an idea of numbers, please can you let me (Mat) or Henry know if you are planning to come along, either by email or through Facebook.

Sunday Rides

The tri club are no longer running their own Sunday rides, but HPTC members are very welcome to join in with Buxton Cycling Club (BCC) on their Sunday rides. The BCC rides are very popular and are excellent for building a base for the Spring and Summer racing. The rides starts at 09:00 from the Edinburgh Woollen Mill Shop on the Quadrant in Buxton. The rides take to local roads as well as roads on Cheshire Plains. There is also a stop off at a cafe somewhere along the ride for a coffee/tea and a slice of cake.

Buxton Cycling Club are also running a number of rides during the week. There is also the prospect of doing some road racing, if you feel brave.

Triathletes based in or near Buxton are always welcome to join in with Buxton & District Athletic Club's sessions on Wednesdays. The BDAC meet at 7.00 pm by the swimming pool (Pavilion Gardens). Please see the club Buxton & District Athletic Club website for more details about the individual sessions.
