About Us

Ocala Triathletes Club is a 50 plus member non-profit organization formed in March 2017 by founders Nicolas Blaser, Erin Freel and Tim Reynolds. Being a formal organized club, there are annual dues from each member( $30 for an individual / $45 for a family).  We have an executive board and we have committees that report to the board and membership. We hold  monthly membership meetings and we raise money for local and national charities.  We are a member of the United States Triathlon Association (USAT).

The club was formed for the following reasons.

  1. Promote the sport of triathlon in our community, as a healthy way to live your life.
  2. Provide athletic support to our members. Whether you are someone who has never done a triathlon or a seasoned competitive triathlete, we offer support and value to meet your individual goals.
  3. Give back to our community in the form of charitable contributions.

Our Mission

The purpose of Ocala Triathletes is to encourage our fellow team members in the sport of triathlon. We strive to get better physically and mentally, individually and as a whole. We believe having a diverse group with all athletic types, all ages and all genders makes us a stronger team with more life experiences for us to draw from. We want to be a welcoming and inviting club regardless of where you are on your triathlon journey and we strive to add value to each athlete’s personal mission. Team over self, honesty and integrity on and off the race course.
