The Association maintains an office in Olympic House, Causeway Bay and employs seven full-time staff, who are charged with carrying out its day to day affairs.


We are a member of the Asian Triathlon Confederation and the International Triathlon Union, the governing bodies for the sport of triathlon in Asia and worldwide. We are affiliated to the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China.


Triathlon is one of Hong Kong's Sixteen Focus Sports, a status which has been achieved as a result of the highly successful international performances of our triathletes in recent years. The Association enjoys generous support from the Hong Kong Sports Institute and Leisure & Cultural Services Department, as well as various commercial sponsors.
