The Wittenberg Triathlon | Wittenberg University

Welcome to the web info page for the Wittenberg Triathlon. Use the links to the right to navigate the pages and find information about this long-running Wittenberg community event.

In the late 1990s, a few of the faculty and staff at Wittenberg started participating in the short triathlons that were popping up all over Ohio. We thought it would be a good idea to organize a triathlon right here on campus for our own Wittenberg community. The inaugural Witt Tri took place in 2000 with five individuals and three teams; since then the Witt Tri has become an annual event with over 50 participants each year.

Any Witt community member is eligible to participate -- students, alumni/ae, members of the faculty and staff, and family members as well. There's no registration fee, and there are no prizes -- except the joy of exercising and recreating with friends. You need not complete the entire event yourself; many participants form relay teams to complete the three legs. Please consider joining us for the next Wittenberg Triathlon.
