Sports & Recreation Sports Club

Description

The Triathlon Club at Iowa State exists to bring together students, staff, and Ames community members who have a passion for swimming, biking, and running. We welcome first-time triathletes to those who compete at regional, national, and world championship races. We represent Iowa State University as a member of the Midwest Collegiate Triathlon Conference (MWCTC). We race throughout the Midwest and attend the USA Triathlon Collegiate National Championship each spring. Check out our Practice Schedule to see where we meet each day. Whether you’re new to the sport or a seasoned veteran, we hope you’ll join us!

Description of Special Events

The triathlon club hosts an indoor triathlon (InCYdeman) in the winter. InCydeman helps fundraise for our club and helps us pay for the costs of Collegiate Nationals. Collegiate Nationals is held once a year in April. There are also summer and winter conference races in which our members participate. These races help members qualify for Collegiate Nationals.
