Team RYPE is a USAT-sanctioned triathlon club founded to inspire, support and educate women of color to participate in triathlons. By providing access to triathlon fitness and training plans, exclusive invites to clinics and events, and a fun, social environment we make sure you cross the finish line! Our group is made up of women who have completed all distances of triathlon, including full IRONMAN 140.6 races, so there is always someone to support you! Our focus is open-water swim races and challenging women to take their triathlon game to the next level. Workouts will build as the season goes on, and will be tailored to support the multi-sport events chosen for that season.

We are a diverse group of awesome ladies who enjoy TRIing, encouraging others to TRI and having lots of fund while training and racing TRIathlons!

My experience with RYPE taught me to dream bigger than my expectation; to never give up on myself because I can do amazing things and surround myself with people who will encourage me, support me and help me advance while also giving back to those who come after me. I learned that as long as I am hydrated, I can keep going! But most of all, I learned to block out the negative voices, real and imagined, that tell me I can’t do something because I can do whatever I put my mind to. Trust the training, follow the plan, finish the race! My experience with RYPE was amazing and I look forward to what is to come!

Team RYPE Requirements

RYPE is committed to providing its members with an encouraging, supportive, and empowering experience. We provide instruction and the required training you need to get you across the finish line of the races we are supporting. With that in mind, we ask that each member possess the following:

Comfortable swimming 4 lengths of the pool (any stroke).
It doesn’t have to “be pretty”, we can work on that! However, we are not a learn-to-swim program.

Comfortable riding your bike on open roads, and able to maintain a speed of 12mph over a 30 min ride.
You don’t have to possess the skill of Major Taylor, but we want to ensure everyone’s safety on training rides and during clinics.

Comfortable run/walking for 20 minutes.

Aside from that, we only require your positive attitude, “can-do” spirit and a will to have fun!
