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 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 $70 for a year. Joining the club gets you a sick jacket, access to the email list serve, group workouts, sponsorship discounts, and professional instruction from USAT certified Coach Brooks Doughtie.
I'm a senior in mechanical engineering. I have been doing triathlons competitively for the past two years. As safety officer it is my sworn duty to make sure make sure no one pays the ultimate price for their own ignorance in the face of danger whether it's in the pool, on the road biking, or running through the streets. Outside of triathlons, school, work, volunteering, and socializing with friends, I enjoy napping, lounging, and of course snuggling! I also like to watch NC State beating Carolina at sporting events - GO PACK!!
I'm a junior 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.
am a sophomore majoring in Biological Sciences! I did my first triathlon the summer before my freshman year and I loved the adrenaline rush so I decided to keep doing it in college. Running and swimming are more up my alley... biking not so much, but I am working on it. I love watching all kinds of sports and trying new things! I also love everything spanish/latino/etc.. Hopefully we can get some awesome apparel this year and if you have any awesome ideas for designs or items feel free to contact me!
