Why join?

As the president of the Rice Cycling & Triathlon Club (RUCT), I would like to welcome you to RUCT. Being a member of the triathlon team allows you to make lifelong friends, gain a valuable network of current students, grad students and alumni, and exercise with some of the best people on campus.

We strive to better ourselves, not only as athletes, but as well-rounded individuals. Through outreach and being a part of local races, our team strengthens our friendships while making connections with the community. Of course, triathlon is originally about swimming, biking, and running. By joining the team, you'll become confident in the water, look forward to 50-mile bike rides on the weekends, and you'll never have to run alone again.

Getting involved with the triathlon club has been one of the best decisions I have made, and I couldn't imagine my life without it. I hope that you consider RUCT.

Swim, bike, run, and Go Owls!

-Mary Natoli
