About the UCLA IronBruin



Now presenting the 10th Annual UCLA IronBruin Triathlon on March 2nd, 2014.

In 2009, we successfully implemented a time-trial start race, where competitors started individually on a steady interval. Competitors then proceeded to snake-swim 8 laps through the pool and then hopped onto the bike course. After 4 complete laps on the bike, competitors began the run to the finish. We continue to implement a time-trial start each year now, with the confidence instilled by each previous year's succes

The purpose of this race is to serve as a fun, but challenging, race in the West Coast Collegiate Triathlon Conference (WCCTC) race series. We hope to draw athletes in from as many schools as possible to race with us on our campus. We want your experience at UCLA the best it can be, so if you have any suggestions for improvements with the race please send your comments to uclatri@gmail.com.

The UCLA Triathlon Team is student-run organization and an official club sport of the UCLA Recreation Department. In addition to a structured coached program for students, UCLA Triathlon also provides coaching and a team atmosphere for staff, faculty, alumni, and community members. UCLA Triathlon provides a multifaceted training program for members of all levels to excel.
