If you have any questions, feel free to email Lilo Navales, Uniform Coordinator.

I'm a good runner, and have always wanted to attempt a triathlon. Do you need to know how to do all the sports well to join your club?

Absolutely not! Part of our mission is to assist those athletes that have the desire to become multi-sport athletes. By joining the RTC, you open a complete resource of clinics, structured workouts and network of athletes of all levels.  There are also lots of incredible resources available to our members through Ironman and USAT initiative Time to Tri!

Am I allowed to try out a workout or event before I join?

Yes, a non-member is always welcome to attend one of our club social events (registration is required for most events), and a group ride.  Feel free to come hang and workout to get to know the Club before joining. Note that our open water swims in the James River are for members only due to safety and liability reasons.

What advice can you give to the 1st time triathlete on how to learn more about multisport?

Check out the RTC Calendar for clinics, group workouts and events, for starters. Then, get to know some friends who enjoy triathlon and ask, work out, and learn. If you are looking to ramp up quickly, check out our sponsor page for great coaching organizations who support RTC.
