ALL ABOUT US
What We’re All About
Based in the Fresno/Clovis area of Central California, Triathlon Club of Central California (TC3) welcomes people of all abilities and multisport disciplines. We love to socialize, train, support each other and compete.
Members attend races locally, nationally and internationally. We participate in all distances. We are active! For 2017, we have 45 optional races on our calendar and many more events.
We have a number of attractive benefits catered to help you achieve your goals. We have something for everyone. Looking for some fun or to train hard or both - we have you covered! There are no manditory races or gatherings.
With the backing of local multisport agencies, we encourage California athletes from the central coast to the Sierra Nevada Mountains and from Bakersfield to the Bay Area to participate in our club.

Members participate in planned and impromptu group swims, bike rides and runs ranging from social to difficult.

We are currently building a mentor program to help aspiring athletes reach their goals. Experienced athletes can give back to the club by becoming a mentor.
We have an awesome team kit and other team gear to show our pride.
The club conducts training events targeted for specific upcoming club races.
Our clinics can help you get the most out of your training. The club provides clinics on various topics ranging from transition tips, nutrition to run technique.
We are currently building a professional coaching resource to help members seeking professional coaching. The club does not profit from coaching, it is simply a benefit offered to members.
Our club hosts and supports local events including a cycling time trial series. This is a great opportunity to crank it up and see what you've got!
Our team competes at a wide range of local and state events. Some members travel nationally and internationally. There are well attended Sprint, Olympic, Long Course and Ironman races.

This year we will be building a catalog of race reports to help you organize and be better prepared for your race.
I was a competitive swimmer from age 5 through college. I became interested in triathlon as a way to continue my love of swimming as an adult. I finally took the plunge and competed in my first triathlons in 2015 and was hooked! Over the last two years, I've completed several sprint and Olympic distance triathlons and my first half ironman, as well as several half marathons and looking to complete my first full marathon this November. I'm a burn and surgery critical care pharmacist and I find training is a great way to work off the stress! TC3 provides an amazing support system and I have made so many wonderful friends. I would love to help provide that to others passionate about this sport! I am so inspired everyday by the amazing accomplishments of the members of this club!
I started my fitness journey on a dare. "You can't run a marathon" and from that statement I have taken off. After accomplishing the marathon a friend suggested doing a triathlon and after one sprint I was hooked. From there I did a 70.3 then on to a 140.6 the following year. I have found something I love, the training gave me an outlet for my high stress job, some "me" time and competing makes me push my self to my limits. 2018 was a big year for me competing in Oceanside 70.3, Ironman Canada 140.6, Tollhouse century and finishing my first ultra trail run with Shadow of the Giants along with a few sprint tri's and half marathons. I am married to an amazing man who puts up with my crazy and my two boys are my biggest fans.
I have been doing TRI for a couple years. I started as an out of shape guy looking for a way to get fit. I bought a book, did the workouts and it was fun...but I had questions, wanted to do some group swims and training run/bike works. During one of my adventures into the world of cycling a local bike shop rep handed me a flier and said I should check out TC3, so I did. I found a social club with my same Triathlon habit. I’ve been a member ever since.
At TC3 we all bring different skills and ability levels, its part of what makes it fun! I’ve done sprint distance events at Lake Tahoe, Morro Bay, Bass Lake, and Millerton Lake. This summer I completed my first Olympic course at Rancho Seco. Training with The group has kept it fun, and opened the doors to many parts of triathlon I really didn’t know that much about. Also this year my wife and 3 boys have each completed there first Triathlons this year. We’re all looking forward to doing more together. I am looking forward to many more years of Tri and some increasingly more difficult races... and having fun doing it.
I’ve been involved in the Club for a few years, TC3 has changed my life for the better and I believe this is the best club and community of people I’ve ever been a part of. I want to continue to support our current amazing TC3 Triathletes in any way I can, find new members to join us, and promote our awesome sport.
David is also handling marketing.

Ex Officio (2017 President)
After 28 years of inactivity, a friend convinced me in 2014 to prepare for a cycling event. I immediately fell in love with cycling. In 2016, another friend convinced me to participate in triathlons. While barely being able to run one mile and swim one pool length in February 2016, I completed an Ironman 70.3 in July of the same year! I love being active and living the experience with my teammates. TC3 rocks!
A few facts about me:
As the son of a missionary, I spent 8 years in Africa through High School.
I have been a business owner since 1985 (software development)
Two adult children and one grandson.
