DC Triathlon Club

Bryan Frank

March, 2018

Bryan got his start in triathlon back in 2008 when a good friend wanted to go to the informational meeting for the New Triathlete Program with the DC Triathlon Club and told him that she did not want to go alone. After his interest was piqued at the meeting, he joined the club and competed alongside the NTP class at New Jersey State Triathlon. The race has gone down in NTP history as Bryan placed third in the novice division despite riding on his mountain bike, and he has become hooked on the sport of triathlon ever since. Bryan has also become highly involved in the DC Triathlon Club serving as a Lead Program Manager for NTP from 2010 to 2012 and then on the club’s Board of Directors as the Director of Programs for 2013 to 2014. He has proudly been a part of the Elite Team since 2013! He now serves as an officer of the club’s Board of Directors in the role of Treasurer and in 2017 took over as Team Captain for the Elite Team! Bryan now trains for all triathlon distances though he really enjoys the Olympic distance triathlon the most.
