ISU Triathlon Club
The ISU Triathlon Club was formed in 2010 after a group of enthusiastic local triathletes got together with the desire to start a university club where people of all athletic abilities could find camaraderie and people with whom they could run, bike and swim. The mission of the ISU Triathlon Club is to promote the educational pursuit of triathlon, general physical fitness, and the representation of the sport of triathlon within the university community and to represent Idaho State University at various collegiate and community competitions.
The ISU Triathlon Club is comprised of a diverse group of individuals from a variety of undergraduate and graduate majors (and faculty/staff members). The club is open to all those interested in the ISU community. Our members range from beginners to seasoned veterans. We also welcome decathletes and other multi-sporters.
The ISU Triathlon Club sponsors group training sessions and clinics throughout the academic year. The Club is also active in the organization of the Pocatello Kids Triathlon, held every September at ISU and the Bengal Triathlon, held every April at ISU. Many club members also participate in the Triathlon Training class, sponsored by the Department of Sport Science and Physical Education (PEAC).
The ISU Triathlon Club is registered with USA Triathlon and affiliated with the Mountain Collegiate Triathlon Conference. The club is committed to strengthening and advancing the sport of triathlon at ISU and in the surrounding community. Annual membership fees apply.
