As the winter term winds down, students are revving up for Augustana’s first annual triathlon at the Edgeworth Centre on Friday, April 15!

With combined support from Augustana Athletics, the Augustana Students’ Association and the Edgeworth Fitness Centre, the Augustana Triathlon Club is excited to host this new event. Our unpredictable spring thaw forces us indoors, but participants will still complete a sprint distance triathlon which involves a swim (750 m), bike (20 km), and run (5 km).

Don’t let these numbers scare you off – we’d like to emphasize that ALL SKILL LEVELS ARE WELCOME!

We encourage everyone to be involved in some capacity, since participants, volunteers, and fans are needed to make this event a success!

  • Participants: For most of us in the triathlon club, this will be our first triathlon, so come out and try it with us! We anticipate a good mix of competitive and fun entries. You can either register individually or in teams of three, where the swim, bike and run are divided among the members. Consider putting together a theme team!
  • Volunteers: We need people to help set up, run stopwatches, count laps, hold doors, take pictures, and “splash” water for our brave competitors.
  • Fans: We would love to have your cheers and high-fives!

Participant and volunteer sign-up will take place in the Student Forum from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 30 through Friday, April 1.

Please note the very reasonably priced entry fees (to be paid at registration):
$10 individual OR $15 team (only $5/person)
+ $10 Vikings Triathlon T-shirt (optional)

After the costs are recovered, all proceeds will be donated to the Japan Relief fund. This race is open to everyone! See you there! Bring your friends… and your professors!
