This annual triathlon tests contestants in three areas of physical skill: swimming, biking, and running. Join us on April 20, 2013 at 7:00am for our 8th annual Triathlon on the campus of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. The race features a distance short enough for that early-season race. Take on the course alone or team up with friends as a 3-person team. A sprint triathlon is perfect for your first triathlon or just another notch on your fuel belt. All proceeds benefit student scholarships at Miami University.
The Miami University Student Foundation (MUSF) sponsors major campus programs, recruits top caliber students, and raises thousands of dollars annually for undergraduate scholarships all while strengthening the link between students and alumni. Founded in 1972, MUSF is proudly sponsored and supported by the Miami University Alumni Association.
The course starts inside at the recreational center pool. The pool is 50 meters long and will be divided into 8 lanes. Swimmers will enter the pool every few seconds in estimated swim time for the 400 meter swim given during registration and will swim the 8 lanes in a serpentine fashion.
The bike course will be on the roads in and around the City of Oxford and the running course will be on Miami's beautiful campus.
