About the Club


As a not-for-profit club, a board of members direct the general operations to ensure things stay member focused.

Tornado Triathlon formed in August of 2013 by three mothers of athletic children looking for a place parents and their kids could all train together.

Our fantastic coaches support our regular club workouts and are often found cheering and participating at local events.
