Running and Triathlon Club
Getting involved with Haverford's Running Club is a great way to get physical education credit, stay in shape, meet new people, and see all the different parts of Haverford and surrounding towns! While members do not need previous running experience, the ability to go for semi-long/long distance runs (ranging from 2-5+ miles) would help. There will be a running and workout schedule for each semester, and there will be different groups to accommodate various levels of intensity.
Optional abdominal and cardio "workouts" will be open after runs, too!
Informal long distance and track meets with neighboring schools will be available to members, as will be club-sponsored racing opportunities (5ks, 10ks, etc.) in Philadelphia and other near-by locations.

A triathlon consists of running, swimming, and biking. Being a part of this club doesn't require you to parttake in an organized race; but, you will have the opportunity to do both road races and triathlons if interested (they're very fun!). The triathlon portion of the club involves special training with an awesome and understanding certified All-American coach in the biking and swimming aspects of a triathlon race. This same coach also leads separate running sessions. Pretty much everyone in the club is new to triathlons, so it's an exciting learning experience for everyone! No athletic experience is necessary! As with the running portion, swimming and biking and race-prep session will take place during the week/weekend. Occassionally, we hold longer workouts, team breakfasts, and trips to Philadelphia bike trails. Join us for one type of workout, or for all three -- come once a week, all the time, or whenever you can!
