  • Welcome to the Wisconsin Triathlon Team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, one of the largest club sports on campus.
  • The only city in North America to be built on an isthmus makes Madison, WI one of the top triathlon towns in the country! Triathlete Magazine has ranked Madison a top 10 place for triathletes to live. It has also been voted #1 most bicycle friendly town, #1 college sports town, and the #1 most educated city in the country. In 2012, Kingliner ranked Madison the #1 best city in the USA to live for young adults.
  • We were selected as the 2012-2013 Club Sport of the Year!
  • Every year in September since 2002 Madison has hosted Ironman Wisconsin, which takes place right here on campus.
  • Each year the team goes on a Spring Break training trip! This year we went to Clemson, SC!
  • Any UW-Madison student, faculty, or staff member is allowed to be on the team. All fitness levels are welcome!
  • Worried about not being able to swim? We've got you covered - beginners are welcome! We have weekly workouts where you can get some advice on your swimming technique. We also occasionally offer "stroke technique" clinics where an educated coach can help you out.
  • USAT Collegiate Nationals is the biggest race for collegiate triathletes and is held each year in April. This year it was in Tempe, AZ and as a team we placed 13th in the nation.

Summer Time!

Summer Practices

For those of you who will be hanging out in lovely Madison over the summer we will be having three "official" practices a week:

Tuesday Bike at 6:00 PM Meeting at the Arb Bridge

Thursday Run at 6:00 PM Meeting at the Arb Bridge

Friday Open Water Swim at 4:00PM Meeting at the Crew Boathouse on North Shore drive in Monona Bay

Not only are group workouts awesome because you get to see everyone else's smiling faces, they're the best way to push yourself to do those interval workouts no one really wants to finish. 

New Dues Paying Facebook Group
I would also encourage everyone to use the new Wisconsin Triathlon Team Facebook group that Ben (Webmaster) has put together to post your workouts if you want some company. He'll be adding people to the group in the coming week, request to join at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1424480127823837/.
We're adding the group so that folks other than the officers can post and discuss workouts/rides/etc..... Please, please, please use it at. The Facebook page will remain the best place to find official announcements and the like.

Warm Weather Practice Updates

Now that we are past Nationals and things are warming up, we have a couple changes to the spring practice shedule, effective immediately:

-  There will no longer be team strength workouts on Fridays. If you'd like to try to find people to lift with, try posting on our Message Board.

The team will be now be biking outdoors! This means that the 
Tuesday Bike
will get moved up to 4PM and will meet at the Arboretum bridge, which is located at the south end of Mills Street.
The Sunday brick will also be moving outside to the Arb bridge but will be keeping its current time (11am) on Sunday mornings. 

As always, teammates of all abilities are encouraged to attend!
