Passionate triathletes, passionate coaches … the D3 Elite Development Team, brings the two together in Boulder, Colorado for a commitment of calculated workouts in order to achieve big-hairy-goals throughout a 10-month race season!  2018 will be our third season for the team and we have our goals set on peak performances once again.  This is the only co-ed elite team in the Boulder area and what uniquely sets this team apart from others is the quality of coaching, the commitment to your goals and the camaraderie of the team.  These are unsurpassed in the sport!



As a result of their commitment to hard work during training, the 2017 team earned numerous top podium spots, achieved personal bests and contributed to the overall success of Team D3 including:

* 1st AG, 18-24F, Ironman Canada

* 4th AG, 35-39F, Ironman Boulder

* 4th AG, 50-54M, Ironman Lousiville


Additionally, 2 of our 9 athletes in the Ironman World Championship race this past October train with the Elite Dev. Team.

  1. I am interested in the program, but I don’t live in Boulder and wouldn’t be able to get there for events throughout the season. Not sure what I would do. From January to May I am pretty busy at work, but most weekend and mornings are my workout time.
