First weekend in May
The team travels down in vans to "The Woodstock of Triathlons" in southern California! Visit the tri california website to find out more about the race itself.
This race is a collegiate club competition and Oregon State has placed several times. We need 3 males and 3 females to be eligible for the collegiate competition. The highest placing members on our team contribute to our overall time. The school with the lowest combined time wins. The more people we have racing, the better chance we have of a faster time.
A deposit for this race will be required to cover cost for race registration and travel if you fail to compete after registering for the event.
The club pays for race registration, food at the race, gas and camping. You are only responsible for food to and from California. See a list of eligible athletes below.
Last weekend in June
Pacific Crest is a HUGE endurance sports festival! Our team competes in the olympic or long course triathlons, but there are also 5k, 10k, half/full marathon, olympic duathlon and long course duathlon.
The Tri Club rents a gorgeous house in Sunriver on the course. It usually has a hot tub and great yard and view. We try to stay from Friday to Monday pending funding. This is a great event with lots of team bonding and a good way to sum up your season.
The deposit for this race will be cashed if you fail to stay with the team after committing to do so. Please note, you are not required to stay in the team house, but should you choose to do so, we require a deposit. If you decide not to stay with the team, you are still eligible for race reimbursement.
The club pays for race registration (reimbursed after you finish), food at the race and housing. You are only responsible for food in the mornings and your travel to Sunriver.
For more information on reimbursements and deposits, please see the reimbursement page.
The Club has continued to send a team to nationals since 2010 thanks to the money raised at our annual fundraisers, the Beaver Freezer Triathlon and the Beaver Fever Duathlon.
Fall Term, an application will be sent out to the list serve. Any interested athletes are encouraged to apply for nationals. Preference is given to those who are officers and coordinators. Because we pay for the trip with the funds from the Freezer and Fever, it is important that the nationals team help take on the majority of the work in organizing these events.
You must be 28 years of age or younger on race day (Mid April) and you must have been enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours Fall, Winter and Spring term. This will be verified through the university registrar prior to departure.
