Club Info: Our membership is open to undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and staff at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. First and foremost our club is dedicated to improving in the sport while having FUN! As a team, not only do we train and compete in races all over the country, but we get together for parties and social events as well. You'll make new friends and meet new people, all the while getting help from more experienced members that help you learn more about triathlons and prepare you to complete. We are all constantly learning new aspects of the sport, and sharing the knowledge is important. Whether you just want to finish your first triathlon, go under 2 hours in an International (Olympic) distance race, or finish an Ironman we can help you achieve that goal. Club Sponsors: We are fortunate to have a great group of local and national sponsors.

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
