About Us page

The Ithaca Triathlon Club was formed in 2003 when a group of local enthusiastic athletes got together and decided to start a club where people of ranging abilities could find camaraderie and people with whom they could run, bike or swim. We are a diverse group of individuals from Ithaca and the surrounding area who share a common interest in multi-sport activities. The club is open to all those interested, with first time triathletes especially welcome.

Our mission is to promote the educational pursuit of triathlon, general physical fitness, and the representation of the sport of triathlon within the community. The club is committed to strengthening and advancing the sport of triathlon. We further our mission by hosting group training activities, clinics, races and social events.

In 2003, the Club organized its first triathlon, 1st Annual Cayuga Lake Triathlon, a Sprint distance event, receiving rave reviews from experienced and first time participants. Our triathlon welcomes individual and relay team participants. The 2nd Annual Cayuga Lake Triathlon added an Olympic distance race, in addition to the existing Sprint distance race, to better accommodate the needs of all levels of athletes.

Interested in our training, racing, educational and social events? Please join us for a run, swim, bike ride or clinic.
