Welcome to the Appalachian State University Triathlon Club's new website!
The Appalachian State Triathlon Club is beginning its first year as a club at Appalachian State with the intent of becoming a recognized club sport by the beginning of next year. We are centered around, but not limited to, the sport of triathlon. We also compete in other endurance races such as duathlon, biathlon, and other run, bike, and swim focused events. Our members range from beginner to seasoned triathletes, but all have the collective goal of bettering themselves, whether it is in the sport of triathlon or their overall health. We train and compete with the support of each other. So, if you're interested in triathlons and want to join or just want some more information about our club feel free to visit us on facebook or go to the contact tab and enter your information and comment.
Don't forget about the BBQ at State Farm on April 15th at 1 pm. Bring your own meat and whatever else you would like to eat. Should be a lot of fun!
For anyone interested in the Belew's Lake Olympic Triathlon but rather participate in a relay instead of the whole thing then post it on the forum. There are two relays that are in need of swimmers but if more people want to do a relay then you can always form another one.
