Tri Club Tuesday: CU Tri Club Silent Auction

CU Triathlon’s Inaugural Silent Auction
By Paisley Sheehan

The CU Triathlon team would like to invite you to join us this Friday, March 9th at 6pm at Colorado Multisport for our inaugural auction!

This event is the work of many local businesses and team members, and we’ve brought together an impressive array of items to be bid upon. Entry is $10, and refreshments and door prizes will be part of the fun.

The University of Colorado Triathlon Team is a club made up of about 75 student athletes. We’re open to every level of triathlete – from first-timers just learning how to swim to athletes who race at the pro level. Our training keeps us together six days a week, and if that weren’t enough we still manage to find time to spend together as friends. Workouts are created by our three inspirational coaches, Brad Seng, Leigh Dodd, and Dave Sheanin, who lead practices and provide insight about anything and everything triathlon. The team is run by elected members who are responsible for fundraising, race travel, and so much more. We take pride in being a part of the local triathlon community and volunteer at many races throughout the year.

The Mountain Collegiate Triathlon Conference (MCTC) competes annually at local races like Boulder Sunset and Oktoberfest, as well as the Pumpkinman Triathlon in Boulder City, Nevada. The CU Triathlon team attends all of these races, culminating in the MCTC Championship race in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. All of this is in preparation for USA Triathlon Collegiate Club Nationals, taking place this year in Tuscaloosa, Alabama from April 27-28. All together, the University of Colorado Triathlon Team has taken home 18 national titles, including the last 8 consecutive years. As a competitive team, we train as hard as we race, but we also enjoy spending time together and sharing our passion for triathlon. As Coach Dave says, “Common suffering builds great teams” – and that has been our mantra for at least as
long as I’ve been on the team.We take pride in our team’s accomplishments, however, our focus is on working hard and having fun.

When my teammates talk about the team on social media or with prospective teammates, it is very common to hear the word “family” used. I can attest that the team feels like my second family, as many of best friends are on the team. One of my best decisions in college was to join the CU Triathlon Team, and every practice reminds me how grateful I am to be surrounded by so many amazing teammates.

Our team is mostly student funded. Every athlete is responsible for paying their own club dues, but our officers work hard to ensure the team has enough fundraising opportunities to subsidize expenses for teammates. ​As a key part of this effort, the University of Colorado Triathlon Team will be holding an inaugural silent auction at 6pm this Friday, March 9th at Colorado Multisport. We have worked with our team sponsors and other local businesses to bring together items that will make for an exciting auction. Products from companies including RŌKA, Boulder Running Company, and Honey Stinger with be featured. Also, you can enjoy a presentation given by local pro triathlete Cam Dye. We would love for anyone in the triathlon community and beyond to come and support us. All proceeds will benefit our journey to nationals by making it possible for more of our team to travel to Alabama.

To follow us on on our journey to Nationals, find us on Instagram @cutriteam, Facebook @CUTriathlon and our website www.cutriathlon.com.

Boulder Sunset Triathlon

Summer may be coming to an end, but our tri season is still heating up! Join us at the Boulder Reservoir for the 12th annual Boulder Sunset Triathlon, a local favorite. For the 4th year in a row we are the proud host of the Mountain Collegiate Conference race and the USAT Duathlon Race Series. Make sure to register early for this one because we will sell out in early August. This race is must-do, featuring a distance for everyone in the family.
