Founded in late 2002, The Mid Maryland Triathlon Club (MMTC) is a USAT-sanctioned, not-for-profit, volunteer, community based organization dedicated to helping the area’s multisport athletes. Our members include novices looking for support before completing their first triathlon to veterans of Ironman competitions. The club is run by the members who organize all activities and events which are geared to multisport athletes of all abilities. We have a Beginners Triathlon Program (free to all members who have not competed in more than 1 triathlon), A Mentorship Program, an annual membership survey to assess the needs of the club members, and a regular offering of training and club meetings appealing to all multisport athletes of all abilities.
Here are some of the programs MMTC offers that are designed to help grow our membership:
- Beginners Triathlon Program – This is a free, 16-week program being offered to MMTC members only to help prepare them for the new Centennial Triathlon complete with a structured program along with training clinics and workouts to help new multi-sport athletes get started.
- A Mentorship Program – The MMTC Mentoring Program is a formal, voluntary relationship between an experienced athlete and a new or less experienced athlete looking to get into triathlons or train for a new distance.
- Regular offering of training & club meetings appealing to all multisport athletes of all abilities.
Joining the club, and getting to know the other members, is a great way to introduce yourself to the world of triathlon, meet others who are passionate about the sport, and improve your athletic abilities, all while having fun.
The purpose of MMTC is to promote wellness through physical activity, training, and education for swimming, biking, and running. This group represents the sport of triathlon and other endurance sports within the community as a fun and effective way to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Membership meetings occur on the first Monday of each month (unless it conflicts with holidays) and are currently being held via Zoom given the current COVID situation. Each meeting will be different and exciting as we invite speakers to discuss training techniques, nutrition, health issues, and personal accounts of their of their experiences doing the things we love! All paid members are welcome to attend.
