About Sydney Triathlon Group (STG)

STG is a ‘not for profit’ member run triathlon club based in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and CBD. We employ professional coaches to help our members train to improve their athletic potential for sporting goals, mainly in triathlon but also in standalone cycling, swimming and running events.

We have a wide range of abilities – from first time triathletes to highly experienced Ironmen and Kona competitors.

Our ages range from 20s through to 60s and we’re roughly an equal gender split. In our club newbies train side by side with 10+ year veterans.

STG has a welcoming culture and a strong social aspect. We take our sport seriously, but we also pride ourselves on a relaxed club vibe and love of coffee.

steveellissmlSteve Ellis – President

Steve Ellis, also known as ‘El Pres’ or ‘Trump…’ got into triathlon after getting roped into the BRW corporate challenge with work after arriving in Oz from the UK with future wife & triathlete Nicola. Steve joined STG in 2008, with STG training no doubt contributing to Steve’s favourite racing moment – going sub-4.30 at IM70.3 Western Sydney. He’s not just a winner, but also a survivor, Steve still lives to tell the tale of being hit by a car driven by celebrity chef Pete Evans’ Executive Assistant! An ex-accountant and now a IT Program Manager, Steve says his dream profession is to be President – well, we’re happy to have made your dream come true at STG . Despite the potential controversy, Steve’s number one quote is “pain is temporary, quitting is forever” (from ex-hero Lance Armstrong), which has helped Steve push through a vast amount of races, including multiple Ironman and marathons. When Steve’s not training or PM/President-ing, he is busy being Papa Bear to two wee girls, allowing his better half Nicola (aka the first lady) to also train and race with STG. Steve’s next short term goal is to get out of bed in the morning (for training, of course), all in preparation for his long term goal of KONA.

 

 

denisepereirasmlDenise Pereira, Vice President

Denise (aka D) joined STG and kicked off her triathlon career in 2008, after being inspired by her Can Too run coach, who was an STG member! With the help of her hot Scott Foil (bike, not a person), D raced her first long course in Husky in 2013, which she rates as her best racing moment. D’s had run ins with possums and footpaths over the years, leaving a couple of scars on the bod, but this hasn’t stopped her pushing on with her training and racing, which contributed to her winning STG’s Most Improved award in 2016. During the day, D works in insurance, but while sleeping, dreams of being a professional traveller. Oh, and if you need any tips for Sydney’s hottest eateries, D is your gal – when she’s not training, she’s eating (#alwaysaboutfood).

garyGary Maher – Finance Director

Our Irish numbers man, Gary/Gaz/Gazza, was a tennis gun and Andre Agassi fan, before taking up triathlon for a new challenge. Since joining STG in 2010, it’s safe to say Gaz has been challenged, particularly at the 70.3 World Champs in Austria – a brutally hard course in scorching heat (and the great atmosphere and scenery!) made it a race he will never forget. Gary’s number one sports quote is “No pain, no gain” (said in an Arnie accent), though perhaps this has been too literal on occasion, with pot holes and cars reversing out in front of him, leaving him tasting the ground a number of times. Gazza is a property analyst, but if he could do it all again, he’d be a Professional American Ninja Warrior. When he’s not training, he’s eating (potatoes of course). He’s recently achieved his first sub 3:00 marathon so next goals for Gazza include keeping his son happy, and hitting a sub 4.30 70.3 and a sub 10 IM.
