A LITTLE ABOUT OUR CLUB


The Triathlon Club of Oklahoma City (Tri-OKC) was formed in January of 2003. It developed out of what was then known as the Oklahoma Triathlon Club, or OTC, which was founded in the early 1990s by a few friends who wanted to introduce multisport to the state. The official statement of purpose of Tri-OKC the club is:

“To strengthen and advance the sport of triathlon; To promote the educational pursuit of triathlon, general physical fitness, and the representation of the sport of triathlon within the community; To publish and otherwise disseminate information related to the sport of triathlon; Generally to do such things as may be necessary to accomplish the above, but not for the pecuniary profit or gain of its members, directors or officers”

We have always been and will remain a non-profit organization dedicated to the growth of multisport, as a means to individual and community fitness and health.

We host aquathlon, duathlon and triathlon races, at club, regional and national levels. We are always looking to share and spread that special kind of crazy that defines the multisport athlete, so if you think you might want to put a swim before your run, or a bike ride after your swim, or a run after your bike ride, or do the whole swim/bike/run thing, then get in touch!

Tri-OKC is a 501(c)7 organization.

Crazy loves company!

MEET OUR AWESOME TEAM




Club Officers





Katrina Menard

President: Katrina Menard was a competitive swimmer as a kid and a Division 1 Cross Country and Track runner in college, so multisport was an exciting new venture for her to do both sports at once. She started doing Aquathlons in 2012, and once mastering the bike she climbed up the ranks through the years, culminating in a 3rd place Age Group finish at the Redman Age Group Long Course Nationals last year. She loves multisport because of the people who partake in it, and has a goal of broadening its appeal across all age groups.


Dan Chapman

Vice President: Coach, bike fitter, trail runner, spin organizer, and spin instructor. Dan wears many hats. We are super pleased to have Dan and his wealth of knowledge and experience on the board.


Kirsten Chapman

Club Secretary: I have been a member of Tri-OKC since 2011, when I turned to multi-sport to overcome injuries incurred as a pure runner. With a cycling background, I took to Duathlon naturally, but my swim is still a work in progress. I have served on the board since 2013, filling the duty of secretary in 2014-2015. Once again I will resume secretarial duties and help the club in whatever capacity I am needed! I look forward to working with our board members this year, and to meeting each club member and helping you fulfill your multisport goals.


Jane Hresko

Treasurer: Jane Hresko was a founder-member of Tri-OKC and is one of the club’s race directors. Jane is the person you need to contact if you are interested in sponsoring the club or one of our events. She has competed in multisport events at national and international level, but more recently has dedicated herself to ensuring that the metro has a thriving multisport community.


Piers Hale

Past President: Piers is a USAT Certified Race Director and ARC Certified Life Guard. He has been in the USA for over a decade, but races for the British Triathlon team. Despite these foreign roots he is dedicated to building the multisport community here in the OKC metro area.

Board Members





Cara Nance

Cara fell in love with multisport in 2007. She enjoys being involved and helping make sure that club events go smoothly. She and her husband both do multisport and she particularly enjoys cheering-on people to compete or complete their event. She says “the camaraderie of multisport is what pulled me in from the beginning.”


Mat Jones

Several years ago Matt was challenged to try multi-sport. His first event was the Route 66 Splash and Dash; addicted to the thrill of swim-run, he immediately signed up for the sprint triathlon just a couple of days la ter. He says, "The Tri-OKC family adopted me and took me under their wing. In the last three years I have competed in 30+ multi-srt events and have volunteered at most. I have developed some of the strongest bonds with others in our club, and consider them family."

December Training

It’s the end of the season, so what’s going on? You may think it’s time to hit the couch and lay down those essential fat reserves that you can call upon in the last miles of your 70.3 or 140.6… But there are other things you can be doing to prepare for next season, or just to keep social with like minded souls. If you’re in Norman, there are plenty of opportunities for keeping active, (post to facebook if you are in a group in Edmond, Moore, OKC, Yukon or elsewhere, or message Piers and we’ll get this updated here):

2017 TRI-OKC BOARD ELECTION RESULTS



Thank you to Katrina Menard for organising our election of board members who will serve from Jan 1 2017 until Dec 31 2019. Congratulations to Kyle Glass and Dan Chapman, but thank you too to each of the candidates for being willing to put themselves forward with the offer to dedicate two years to building the club. I hope that all of the candidates will feel that they have the endorsement of the membership to remain active in the community, as we all know, it takes many more people than just the board and officers to make races and club events happen. We'll raise a glass (not Kyle) to them all at the Xmas dinner on the 3rd December at Schlegels.

Ironman Arizona 2017

Race report by Tri-OKC member Reid Foster, who pulled out a Kona-Qualifying sub 9 hour performance at IMAZ this year!

Nice work, Reid, and congratulations!

“This is my first race report ever so please excuse any mistakes and I’m open to any criticisms. I have had multiple requests for a race report so here it is… don’t judge! IM Arizona, from what I understand, is one of the most popular and sought after races in North America. The weather and race venue this year did not disappoint and I finally understood why this race is so popular and now is very special to me.
