Triathlon, swimming, cycling and running club supporting the Ohio Northern University community.
Mission: Promote endurance sports through mentoring, togetherness and encouragement.
Below is a link to a tri towards the end of October. Its pretty much the last tri of the year and is really cheap (25$ total). You get a shirt and a medal and some other freebies. I would love for the club to grow and training for a race in the fall here could help. I raced last year and had great success, I'm sure if we showed up in numbers we could sweep the board.
For anyone interested, ONU ZTAs are hosting Run For The Ribbon 5k Sunday, the 27th. Race is at 11 a.m. so no excuses you can't still sleep in! See attached registration form.
[04/05/14] One week from the race. I hope anyone who has decided to race is ready to go and have a good time! If anyone needs a place to stay my house is open for that Friday night. I know a few of you have told me that you live close and will stay home the night before the race but we will still meet up Friday before heading back towards Dayton. If you need a place to stay though just send me a message.
It's that time of year again. I need a head count on who will be attending the Miami University Triathlon this year! We had a great showing last year and I hope we can get similar numbers.
If you plan on going just post that you are below. Also if you have not registered online yet I would suggest doing it soon
[03/13/14] Hey everyone, here is the plan for the weekend. Anyone who is looking to ride and run on Saturday there will be a group meeting at the track parking lot at NOON so bring your bike and running shoes.
