Triathlon

Our goals include training for races, improving swim/bike/run times, winning races, and bringing a strong team to Triathlon Collegiate Nationals each year. Our club typically has 30 active members.

  • President: Erin Horil, horilee@dukes.jmu.edu
  • Vice President: Audrey Cannon, cannonal@dukes.jmu.edu
  • Secretary: Carolyn Carlson, carlsocr@dukes.jmu.edu
  • Treasurer: Kevin Mulcahy, mulcahkp@dukes.jmu.edu
  • Advisor: Debbie Sterm, sturmdc@jmu.edu

The club is a registered Triathlon club in USAT (USA Triathlon) and many of our members have a USAT membership. We practice all year long. Typically we do 3-4 Triathlons both in the Fall and Spring. In addition, some of our members run marathons or half marathons together. We also participate in 1 or 2 adventure races each year.

There are no try-outs to make the team, everybody who wants to join is welcome. Triathlon club dues are $50/semester. This allows you to get the club discounts to athletic stores and travel with the team to races. The fee for entering a race will vary, but will typically be around $60. For a USAT (USA Triathlon) membership, which is optional, the cost is $40 annually.

We understand that everybody has a different schedule and it may be hard for people to make the practices. For this reason, we have a web board where people can post the times and places that they will be working out. We do not have any organized practices on the weekends, but 99% of the time somebody will post on the web board a workout they are doing and would like company. Our typical practice schedule is  Monday: Cycle 8 pm (Cycle Studio 3rd floor UREC); Tuesday: Swim 6:30 am (UREC pool), Track 7 pm (ISAT track); Wednesday: Cycle 7:30 pm (Cycle Studio 3rd floor UREC), Club Meeting (UREC Instructional Room); Thursday: Swim 7 pm (UREC pool); Friday: announced at group meeting.

Many of our club members have come in first in their age group or overall for their gender.
