Spring 2014 is here and that means another semester of training, racing, and that oh so special team bonding. This post is here to lay out the upcoming semester for the Gamecock Triathlon Club for those interested in joining, already joined, or bored people on the internet.
We have set the practice schedule which can be found on this website. Some practices are open, while others are designated for the “Nationals Team”. Feel free to join in on any open practices as these are instructive, challenging, and fun. Be mindful that if you begin attending practices it is required to fill out the waiver as well as pay dues ASAP (find on the “Dues” section of the website). Our deadline has officially been set at January 31st to pay dues for this semester.
We have a number of races to choose from this semester as shown here:
Columbia Downtown Sprint Triathlon- A sprint triathlon that starts in Blatt and makes its way around Columbia! This is the perfect first triathlon and many USC students and other Collegiate athletes will be participating.
Early Bird Sprint Triathlon- A sprint triathlon held at the University of Georgia. Another perfect first race and also a Collegiate race!
Parris Island Sprint Triathlon- A sprint triathlon located on Parris Island itself! A flat and fast course makes for a good, early season race.
West Point Olympic Triathlon- An Olympic distance triathlon held in Georgia. This is ideal for the athlete prepared for a longer race and also looking to race Collegiately.
Clermont Draft Legal- A high intensity race suited to the more experience athlete.
Collegiate Nationals- Our top guys and girls will be competing against the best in the nation in Arizona.
For more details, links, and discount codes to these races, find them on the schedule on this website.
The best way to learn more about the club is to come to practice. See you out there!
