The Mornington Peninsula Triathlon Club (MPTC) was founded in 1986, and is one of Australia’s oldest and most respected triathlon clubs. MPTC was commenced by a group of like-minded, interested people, such as Owen Johnston, Graham Musgrave, Ron Foster, Ken Jenkins and Graeme White. The first three had sons of great triathlon potential. Graeme White was the first president. The club was formed at a meeting held at the police and citizens hall, Tower Road, Frankston, and it became incorporated on 27th October 1986.
It was in 1988 that MPTC found its present and permanent club rooms, which it rents from Frankston Council. The club has exclusive use of the building on a park in Williams Street, Frankston. The club currently has a membership of over 170 members and operates on a non-profit basis. If you live anywhere from Frankston to Portsea then we are the club for you – come and join us now and swim, ride and run across the Peninsula.
MPTC is run entirely by volunteers. On becoming a member, we ask that everyone offer their services (or their friends and family members!) in some way. By volunteering, we are able to keep our fees low.
