The NC State Triathlon Club, 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 season veterans 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.
If you are interested in joining the club email the club at Triathlonfirstname.lastname@example.org. Club dues are $75/guys $50/girls for a year and $50/$35 for a semester. Joining the club gives you access to the email list serve, group workouts, sponsorship discounts, and professional instruction from USAT Coach Brooks Doughtie.
I'm a Senior in Environmental Science and Minor in Biology. I have been doing triathlons for almost 2 years and after attending nationals last year I finally committed to training exclusively for them. It has been an unbelievably rewarding experience and I learn more almost every day. Please don't be hesitant to ask me any questions!
I am a sophomore in Engineering, and I competed in my first triathlon last year at the Wilmington YMCA race. I got involved with triathlon by spontaneously signing up for the Triathlon PE class, and after meeting some of the awesome people in the Tri Club I was hooked. Attending Nationals last year as a freshman was probably my favorite weekend of all time.
Sophomore in industrial engineering, and the official most awesome person in history. I’m from Wilmington, NC and have been doing triathlons in some fashion since I was 10 or 11. I love training for/competing in/preparing for/talking about triathlons more then just about anything. Favorite race: Kure Beach for sure! Outside of triathlons I enjoy wasting time on the internet and eating copious amounts of carbohydrates. http://rachunok.wordpress.com/
I'm a sophomore in Aerospace Engineering, minoring in Economics because I find it fun. This is only my second year doing triathlons; my first race was the 2011 Wilmington YMCA (great first race). Besides triathlons I enjoy shagging, hammocking, and of course watching sports.
I'm working towards my PhD in applied mathematics. I've been running and swimming competitively for more than 10 years and joined the tri club and started racing in 2011. My favorite race is anything at White Lake. My favorite part of a race is getting off the bike (and finally getting to run). Outside of triathlons, I enjoy hiking, dancing, and eating peanut butter.
I'm from Raleigh and a Senior in Human Biology! I'm also a volunteer EMT in my spare time. I started doing triathlons in 2009 and got hooked! Now, I have done all the distances except for the full Ironman, which I am currently training to do in 2013!
