USA Triathlon is the national governing body for multisports, which include Triathlon. Among other races, USAT organizes and oversees Collegiate Nationals, our biggest race of the year.
In 2015, Nationals was at Clemson, SC. The team pays for a significant portion of the trip (the cost per person this year was around $50!), and everyone got to race against 130+ schools and some of the best athletes in the nation.
Every year, the Spartans are one of the teams with the highest number of athletes, and every year we get faster. Signing up for Nationals means you’re making a commitment to yourself and to the team; your practice attendance will be monitored, and you will be required to do swimming, cycling, and running time trials regularly. It’s hard – but trust us, in the end, it’s worth it.
