Whether you are starting out in the world of triathlon or racing competitively, MTC is the club that has it all! We are a dynamic, engaging and welcoming community.
Why become a Melbourne Tri Club Member?
Becoming a member of MTC entitles you to the following great benefits:
Race Day Support
We have recently invested in two large MTC tents that are present on race days (typically this includes the Gatorade/Active Feet Triathlon Series, Ironman Melbourne, Ironman 70.3 Shepparton, the Geelong Multisport Festival and various others events).
Members have a central location on race day to meet, warm up together, cheer each other on and socialise! We also provide food, BBQ and massage services to help you recover from your race.
Social and Educational Events
MTC holds some awesome Social Events including a yearly End of Race Season Awards Night/Party subsidised for all MTC members, a start of season launch and unofficial post training breakfasts.
We also have occasional product/educational nights held by our partners/sponsors involving everything from training and nutrition to learning how to maintain your bike!
In association with Fluid Movements, our coaching provider, we also hold regular training camps during the on and off season, open to all members to attend.
Discounts from a variety of Sponsors and Partners

Free Saturday Long Ride
All MTC members are welcome on our Saturday morning long rides. The rides vary in location, often rotating between Beach Rd (roll out from Port Melbourne), the Dandenongs and Kinglake (roll out from Kew) as well as race specific ride/run sessions at various locations. These sessions cater for all levels of athlete and are hosted by our training provider, Fluid Movements. Information on meeting times and placed are sent out in the club's weekly e-news that all members receive.
Optional Squad Training with our Preferred Coaching Provider, Fluid Movements
Members have the option to train on their own terms or to align with our preferred coaching provider, Fluid Movements. They provide competitive coaching programs for all levels from various inner city based locations.
Fluid Movements also co-ordinates the regular MTC/Fluid six week beginner courses to help introduce new comers to triathlon.
For more info on Fluid Movements training options, locations and other services then contact memberships via the contact us page and we can put you in touch with Fluid.
Another bonus is athletes who are on a Fluid Movements program have a reduced membership fee with MTC.
In addition, MTC membership gets you involved with a great bunch of people who are interested in triathlon, from first timers to those competing overseas or as a professional.
What makes MTC different is that you can still be a member of the club, taking advantage of all the benefits without having to commit to structured training or race with the club.
- Adult: $70 per year
- Adults on a financial Fluid Movements Training Program: $50 (subsidised) per year
- Full time teritiary student/junior (under 16): $50 per year
- Social Membership: $40
*Having a financial membership with a recognised Triathlon Club (like MTC) in Victoria entitles you to a discounted Tri Vic / Tri AU membership fee (reduced from $209 per year to $125 per year) entitling you to many benefits including reduced race entry fees and priority entry to popular races. So taking into account all the great benefits on offer and the reduced Tri Vic membership, becoming a member of the Melbourne Tri Club pays for itself!
Where do I sign up?
Your MTC membership is completed at the same time as when you register for your Triathlon Australia/Victoria membership. This is because you need to be a member of Triathlon Australia/Victoria in order to be a member of MTC.
