Women's Collegiate Triathlon Teams Across the Nation to Compete in Championships This Month

Nov 09, 2022

The 2022 Women’s Collegiate Triathlon National Championships are scheduled for Nov. 12 in Tempe, Arizona. This will be the fifth year for Tempe and Arizona State University to host the National Championships.

Women’s Collegiate Triathlon athletes compete in a draft-legal race format, featuring a sprint-distance triathlon consisting of a 750-meter open-water swim, 20-kilometer bike and 5k run.

At the 2021 National Championships in Tempe, Arizona, Arizona State University claimed its fifth straight DI national title and Queens University of Charlotte took home its sixth straight DII national title. Trine University won its first DIII national title. Queens University moved to DI this year for the first time.

To date, more than 40 schools offer women’s collegiate triathlon at the varsity level, an important benchmark reached earlier this year as the NCAA Emerging Sport for Women now has a few more steps to take on its way to being fully managed by the NCAA as a Championship Sport, including committee, council, divisional and budget approvals. In August, the University of Arizona became the latest school to announce it would add varsity women’s triathlon to its sports programs.

Throughout the next month in the lead up to the Women’s Collegiate Triathlon National Championships USA Triathlon will highlight the athletes, coaches and storylines in “day in the life” features, social media takeovers and more. Check out @usatriathlon social media and
usatriathlon.org for the content.
