The University of Ottawa Triathlon Club is currently a recreational club under the banner of the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa. We have been in operation for over 9 years and have seen growth from 5 members to a total of 42 current members in 2016-2017. This increase in membership has been achieved by offering unbeatable prices to athletes in the Ottawa area, word of mouth marketing, and by maintaining a fun, athletic atmosphere with a competitive edge.
As the sport of triathlon grows world wide, we encourage our athletes to contribute to the growth of the sport by participating in the University Multisport Series which offers competitive opportunities for student-triathletes from universities in Ontario. Participating schools include the University of Ottawa, University of Toronto, Western, Queen’s and Royal Military College. Further, we compete in local triathlons in the Ottawa/Gatineau region such as the Somersault races, the Ottawa Triathlon, Meech Lake, and road races (5/10km) including the Cookie Run, the Santa Shuffle and the St Patricks day run which all support local charities and organizations. We are pleased to announce that we are sending 2 current members of UOTC as well as 3 alumni's to Triathlon World Championships held in Rotterdam, Netherlands this September. There, they will proudly represent Team Canada, the University of Ottawa and last but not least, UOTC.
Mission and Purpose:
We believe that the sport of Triathlon teaches lessons and skills that contribute to the success and fulfillment in academics and life. Whether our athletes are training for their first ever 5km run, or looking to secure a spot on Team Canada, our qualified coaches will work alongside each individual athlete in order to meet their goals.
Through our program we intend to enrich the University of Ottawa experience for all student-athletes by promoting healthy lifestyles, increasing athletic abilities and providing competitive opportunities to people of varying experience, gender, language and ethnicity all while sharing a common interest - Triathlon.
