SOL DONUM / DC TRIATHLON CLUB ELITE TEAM
Every triathlete's journey begins somewhere. That first swim. That first bike ride. That first run.
Some people look at triathlon as something to cross off a bucket list. For others, triathlon becomes a journey that progresses through sprint, Olympic, Half Iron, and full Iron distance triathlons. Whether a triathlete's goal is just to finish, to go further, to stay fit, all noble pursuits are they.
Welcome to the DC Triathlon Club's informational page about the DC Triathlon Club Elite Team Program (ETP). The club strives 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 mission of the ETP is to give the fastest triathletes in the DC Metropolitan area 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 race at the highest levels of competition.
Leading by example, these athletes foster competitive drive throughout the club and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.
"Reliable Electricity Is Not Guaranteed" Most of us take access to electricity for granted, but North American electrical grid transmission and distribution lines are over a hundred years old. Now way past their life expectancy, grid power plants and power lines are already failing in devastating ways. Aging systems have resulted in wildfires and rolling blackouts regularly occurring during heatwave and high-wind conditions. As big power suppliers avoid infrastructure investments and as terrorist attacks on the grid grow in frequency and sophistication, it will only get worse. We are proud to continue working with Sol Donum in 2020 to help us showcase some of the Washington DC area's top talent. This exciting partnership will allow us to continue to work to develop elite amateur level talent to represent the larger DC Triathlon Club! While their racing results enhance the visibility of the club and its partners and sponsors, these athletes also serve as mentors, role models, and volunteers throughout the triathlon community, thus contributing to the overall success of the club and proudly supporting Sol Donum.
Latin for 'Sun Gift'
The idea of Sol DonumTM (Latin for ‘Sun Gift’) came about when the company co-founder, looking for a clean, quiet alternative to his small gasoline generator, purchased a brand named solar generator to power appliances during outages. The unit was not able to operate as advertised for more than a few seconds and only held power for a few hours under load. The alternative would have been to purchase an expensive solution that would have to be permanently wired into his home. Consequently, he was inspired to design and build an enhanced solution, the Vulcan Energy System, that fills in the gap.
