About Us

Coogee Triathlon Club is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to developing the sport of triathlon and related multi-sport events for racing, physical fitness and recreation.


Our membership aims to include novice to seasoned athletes from Coogee and throughout the Eastern Suburbs (Sydney) area. We are a club the values participation and sportsmanship above all else. We pride ourselves on creating an atmosphere where we can foster the complete beginner athlete but also have a platform for those who compete at World Championship level.

Founded in 2008 by Mathew Dymond (life member) the Coogee triathlon club has gone from strength to strength in both numbers and performance. The club has achieved multiple wins in the Triathlon NSW Club Championships and are also well represented in many Challenge, Ultimate and Ironman events around Australia.


The club has a wide range of training, activities and social events throughout the year whereby our members either get free or heavily discounted attendance. Our Training schedule consists of free sessions ran by our members and also paid sessions with our partner organisations which are ran by qualified coaches. Please visit the ‘membership’ page to find out more about the benefits of joining and what the next steps are




Loren Lane


Melbourne raised Loren moved to Sydney as a 'runner'. When she made the transition to triathlon she was unable to swim more than 500m without stopping and 30km was a long cycle. She has now competed in 5 Ironman, and numerous 70.3's qualifying for World Champs in both. Coogee Triathlon Club has helped her achieve her best within the sport and she believes that the club is the most welcoming/supportive club you will come across. She runs the Thursday morning cycles every week and loves seeing beginners progress from not being able to hold on to the bunch in the warm up to absolutely dominating sessions.


Hannah Morgan


Hannah is enthusiastic and passionate about all things health and fitness; she spent many of her collage years in the UK rowing at an elite level for Cambridge before moving to Australia. Hannah is passionate about helping our new triathletes and sharing her wealth of knowledge to all. She recently completed her first 70.3 triathlon and now has her sights set on a marathon with the potential of doing an Ironman further down the track.

Heather Tumblety

General Committee

I completed by first triathlon in 2021 then moved to Sydney a few months later. Getting to grips with a new job & new city meant I lost my way a bit. I had one triathlon under my belt but no routine, knowledge of where to go and how to train. I wanted triathlon to become a permanent part of my life but needed a little help. The lovely staff at MC introduced me to a few CTC girls and I haven’t looked back since. They accepted me into their ‘Beginners Program’ and I learned so much. It was a fun experience with other people who, like me, were very new or brand new to the sport. We had so many questions but none of them felt silly and the CTC members were there to cheer us on from day one. Although I am still learning, I now train six times a week and am thrilled to be part of the club. By being on the committee, I hope to be a voice for novice triathletes and keep those who do shorter distances in mind.


Julia Warning

Vice President

Julia is Coogee-born and bred but don't let that impress you. Coming to triathlons later in life, she only completed her first 1km ocean swim in Jan 2020 and bought her first pair of cleats 11 months later! Julia is keen to help CTC continue to be the friendliest club around - and accessible to all, regardless of ability, age or aspiration!


Emily Brownlow


Emily moved to Coogee from Ireland in 2018 and joined Coogee Tri Club in 2022 after deciding to do a 70.3. Emily played hockey for years before finding her love for all things swim, bike, run. Since joining the club, Emily has completed numerous 70.3s and did her first Ironman in May this year. Emily can usually be found trying to keep up with everyone else at swim squad or at Thursday cycles. 


Kerry Toumbourou

General Committee

Kerry joined Coogee Triathlon Club in 2021 after moving to Sydney from Melbourne. He loves the club’s fun and inclusive culture. He joined the Committee shortly after joining the Club. You’ll always spot Kerry at a social event and a race - but you might not see him at training sessions…


Owen Steer

General Committee

Born and bred in Canberra, Owen came to triathlon in 2018 after playing football his whole life. Originating from a New Years Eve bet, Owen was then locked in to do his first triathlon at the Western Sydney 70.3… he thought this would also be his last. However, the itch had to be scratched and Owen continues to race at most opportunities. Always happy to have a chat and a laugh, you will see Owen missing swim repeat times because he is too busy talking.

Life Members

Matthew Dymond

Matthew Dymond founded the club and was a fundamental figure in leading the club to many successes. Matt built the club from the ground up as president until 2016. The club would not be what it is today without Matt's dedication, support and guidance.


Nicole Cox

Nicoles dedication to the club is unrivalled. During her time on the committee (both as a general member and president) she gave so much back and has left an impact that will be forever lasting. She has always worn the blue and gold with pride and we hope she will continue to do for as long as she races
