Welcome to the DC Triathlon Club's general informational page about the DC Triathlon Club Elite Team Program. We strive to provide opportunities for athletes of all abilities by offering a suite of training programs that encompasses every aspect of progression through the sport of triathlon. The journey begins with the New Triathlete Program (NTP) and ends with the Elite Team Program (ETP).
The mission of the ETP is to develop top-level age group talent into elite triathletes. Our vision is to give the fastest members of the DC Triathlon Club the opportunity to train and race together as a team. By doing so, we provide these athletes with the support structure and resources necessary to reach the highest levels of competition. Leading by example, these athletes foster competitive drive throughout the club and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.

What is the District Taco / DC Triathlon Club Elite Team About?
In 2012 DC Tri Club and Snapple Tri Team merged their elite amateur teams to provide a more structured and cohesive team while promoting both clubs in a non-competitive environment. This combined force worked together for five amazing years showcasing some of the Washington DC area's top talent. Continuing on into 2017, the DC Triathlon Club is proud to bring on District Taco as our new title sponsor for the team! This exciting partnership will allow us to continue to work to develop elite amateur talent. Though their race results enhance the visibility of the club and its sponsors, these athletes also serve as mentors, role models, and volunteers, thus contributing to the overall success of the club and proudly supporting the mission of District Taco.
Why District Taco?
In 2009, two neighbors got together over some homemade chips, salsa and guacamole and decided to launch District Taco as a food truck. District Taco has since grown and now operates multiple locations in and around Washington DC. Their mission is to serve quality Mexican (Yucatan style!) food that is fresh, simple and healthy. All of their food is made fresh daily from quality ingredients. They strive to limit their impact on the environment by serving in environmentally-friendly packaging where possible.
District Taco Racing was established to excite the MABRA race scene. Founded in 2014, they are a team of brand new racers focused on building strong relationships, team-based strategies, and the determination to win. DT Racing is composed of elite amateur and club members, riding and racing in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Their mission is to promote, encourage, and inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle through a nutritious diet, physical activity, and social well-being. Proudly title sponsored by District Taco, you will find the team in black and yellow on group rides, at races, and in the city streets. If you see them don't hesitate to wave, tip your hat, or shout. They are always willing to lend a helping hand, give encouragement, and share a laugh or two.
