History

Founded in 2006, the Portland Triathlon Club grew out of  Team in Training and the YMCA. The club now has over 200  active, enthusiastic members and we are growing.

Some highlights of the club include:

  • USAT registered club, and Oregon 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation  since 2006.
  • Devoted to growing the sport regionally, supporting athletes of all  levels with training, education, and racing.
  • A coached Race Team comprising between 20-30 athletes each year who  compete in national and international events.
  • Active presence at many  local triathlons, swims, runs and  other events, with a club booth and volunteers at key regional races.
  • Organized club workouts nearly every day of the week, and sometimes 2 per  day.
  • Promoters of the PTC Mock Triathlon each May, as well as the Hagg  Lake Open Water Swim, since our merger with the Gecko Tri Club in 2011.
  • Monthly club meetings with seminars, speakers, giveaways, and social  events.
  • Clinics and coaching sessions for beginner through elite athletes.
  • Devoted sponsors and partners who work with us to grow the sport.
