Triathlon at SCU

Enjoy swimming, biking, and running? The Triathlon Club is the place for you!

We are a competitive group, training to be a serious contender at the collegiate triathlon level, while still having fun. Throughout the year we strive to stay in peak condition, both physically and mentally, by pushing each other during training sessions. The team is open to all students, experienced or not! The main goals are to train hard, train smart, and have fun. Enjoy one, or even two, of the events but not the other(s)? Some of our races offer relays! In a relay, you have the chance to race with a team, where each individual will race in a leg of either swimming, running, or biking!

For more information, contact the Triathlon Team President!

SWIMS: Our swims are typically between 2,000-4,000 yards. We focus on drills/techniques for a portion of the workout and then jump into our sets. We focus on shorter sets at the beginning of the week and longer sets at the end.

RUNS: For run workouts, we meet at the main gate to Bellomy Field by the bike racks. Most run workouts are done on the dirt path surrounding Bellomy Field. Workouts consist of intervals and longer tempo/threshold efforts as well as some easy off-campus runs mixed in.

RIDES: We have two team rides: a night ride on Wednesday and a morning ride on Saturday. Wednesday rides are shorter tempo rides where we push the pace and work on group riding skills like drafting. Expect rides to be between 20-25 miles. Lights are required. Saturday rides are no-drop rides at a more casual pace than Wednesday. These rides typically have some sustained climbing involved. Expect to ride between 35-50 miles.
