The idea of Tri Sport Epping Triathlon Club was the brainchild of it's Founder Member and now Honorary President Brian Daley MBE. In September 1987 Brian invited some colleagues to discuss the possibilities of setting up a triathlon club. By November of the same year the group of 4 had formed a committee and organised their first event.
On the 22 November a crowd of 18 were attracted to the first Tri Sport Epping Mini Triathlon Event which was a great success.
