Multisport Club: Speed Sherpa Racing
Our triathlon team is a co-ed, nation-wide crew of about 100 triathletes affectionately known as the Speed Sherpa Nation. Each year our athletes celebrate achievements such as personal records, qualifying for national and/or world championships, or tackling a new distance or type of race they never thought possible. Critically, our athletes are ambassadors of the sport: They exhibit the kindness and sportsmanship that has come to define this team. We are an all ages, all abilities team: Speed Sherpa Racing doesn't believe in separating teammates based on ability! We've found over the years that novices can learn from veterans, while experienced athletes are inspired and re-energized by the joy new-comers feel with each accomplishment. We have athletes who qualify for pro cards and athletes who are just beginning their journey!
