Alabama Triathletes is a competitive club sport team open to all students & faculty at The University of Alabama. We provide structured daily training programs and workouts for all levels. We swim, cycle, & run wherever we go, taking advantage of the beautiful trails in Alabama!
In addition to daily workouts, the team has regular clinics on topics focusing on a range of skills–such as swim technique, racing transitions, bike safety & handling–and many more. We’ll teach you everything you need to know to train and race triathlons!
We are a year round team, racing from August to May at distances from Sprint to Olympic (some of our hardcore members occasionally do Ironman distances!).
We have a big team that feels like family and can make your college experience so much more memorable!
