2021 Zoom Information Meeting:

Are you Tri Curious?

There are many benefits to trying something new, so why not triathlon? If you have ever thought about training and competing in the multisport of swim-bike-run, there is no better time than now to start.

Chico Triathlon Club (CTC) will be hosting an informational meeting via Zoom on February 25th @6:30pm to talk about all the ways you can join in on the fun. CTC is a club for all ages and all abilities.

Here is the Zoom Link for Info Meeting: tinyurl.com/bael8269 to join the event and learn how you can connect, train, and compete with friends.

Can’t wait to see you soon! Questions ahead of time? Contact us at info@chicotriathlonclub.com.

Virtual Competition:

To help keep us motivated, we will be holding a monthly contest for members only. This contest will be a way for our members to compete against each other. Because we are all at different levels, we will randomly pick a member who has longed a training onto the Clubs Strava page. The time frame will be from the 1st day of the month until midnight of the last day of the month. You will have to send in your completed training log to https://www.strava.com/clubs/ChicoTriClub by the 2nd of the next month.

We will then randomly pick a winner for the month.

December’s winner is LOUIS DAVIS, congratulations and keep up the inspirational work!

January’s winner is DANIEL WYSONG, congratulations and keep up the inspirational work!
