Triathlon Team Set to Compete at Home this Weekend

Denver Triathlon competes on home turf this weekend for the first time in program history.

DU triathlon returns to Colorado to compete in the Longmont Octoberfest Sprint on Saturday, Sept. 24 at the Union Reservoir in Longmont. Denver is the returning champion of this event and will be competing against the top three collegiate triathlon teams – defending national champion Arizona State, runner-up University of San Francisco, and the University of South Dakota.

The following day, the teams will line up to compete in two events, excluding cycling, on the Denver campus. The event marks the inaugural Mile High Relays on Sunday, Sept. 25 at the El Pomar Natatorium and Denver Soccer Stadium. Both races are set to begin at 8 a.m. MT. This will be a great opportunity to watch the DU athletes in action for the first time at the Ritchie Center.

At the conclusion of this weekend, DU should have a good understanding of its national standing against top competitors. Denver competes in two more events following this weekend before the national championships in Tempe, Arizona on Saturday, November 12th.
