The Triathlon Club at NC State, which is affiliated with USA Triathlon and the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Triathlon Conference (MACTC), aims to promote the sport of triathlon with NC State students while providing a supporting network of people for training and racing triathlons. The club provides resources and coaching for a wide variety of athletes.
Many members join before they have ever completed a triathlon and others are seasoned athletes that have completed Ironman distance races. The main goal of the club is to have fun while promoting a healthy lifestyle. Club practices are held throughout the week in each of the three sports. The club competes in individual races in the Setup Event Series and FS Series races in North Carolina and numerous out of state triathlons including Collegiate Nationals which is in Clemson SC this year.

Joining the club gets you a t-shirt, access to the email list serve and facebook group, group workouts, sponsorship discounts and complete travel coverage to every race.

I'm Julie Falzon and I'm the head of the triathlon club this year. I have been a dedicated member of this club since the beginning of my college career and cannot wait to see how much we can improve ourselves and our team this year. I am a senior in Mechanical Engineering with a Physics minor. I compelted my first triathlon three weeks after I had joined the club - I doggie-paddled 1500m, I rode a Wolf Wheels single-speed rented bike, and ran my 5K in Sketchers Shape-Ups. I am living proof that you can come a LONG way as long as you tri! Triathlon is a home for me, and I hope I can share the love I have for this sport with all of you.
My name is Hannah Field and I'm VP with my pal and fellow senior Julie. I will be graduating in the spring with a degree in Applied Nutrition Sciences. Triathlon is an environment to make new friends, take a break from school, and have a lot of fun. Come be a part of something great!
