Making triathlon classes a part of curriculum for students is a growing trend on college campuses around the country. Auburn University is the latest institution to make training for triathlons a part of students’ educations.

You do not have to be a world-class athlete to join Auburn’s Triathlon Training class.

Participation requires a willingness to try and a mindset of having fun.

“I want my students to realize that they have the capabilities of completing a triathlon,” said James McDonald, director of TigerFit and one of the class instructors.

McDonald said he wanted to interest his students in a sport in which they can compete for a lifetime.

“The class is about enjoying exercise that is fun,” McDonald said.

The course prepares students to participate in a sprint triathlon by the end of the semester.
