The triathlon team of Brussels Gay Sports is becoming reality!

Our mission is to gather together a diverse and committed group of people in Brussels to train and master together the three disciplines of triathlon: swimming, biking and running. We are planning to have two levels:

  • Level 1 aimed at training for short distances up to the olympic distance (1.5km swimming, 40km biking, 10km running);
  • Level 2 aimed at training for longer distances, especially the half-Ironman distance (1.9km swimming, 90km biking, 21km running).

The training aims to prepare people to participate together in some competitions in Belgium and abroad during the season.

Triathletes will follow a weekly schedule of trainings, with a mix of guided trainings, collective trainings and solo trainings. We follow the core values of BGS: while training, everybody must have fun and feel comfortable in a community where they can be themselves.

Preparing a triathlon is not an easy ride, but together it will be a fun ride!


Due to limited capacities, not every request can be accommodated and a minimum level of initial fitness might be required. If you would like to participate, please send an email to to express your interest and we will get in touch to organise when you can join.

We hope that this new team will bring more people closer to triathlon while enjoying the social side of the sport with an LGBTQIA+ family of triathlon enthusiasts.
