Continuing our Club Series - get to know Wheelworks Multisport! We have a 5 member round table about not only their club which is located in/around the Boston area and their training locations, but also about special training events, their diversity initiatives this year. Plus we dive deep into what’s happening with the Boston Marathon and the Max races in general. I loved talking to each and everyone one of these wonderful people and I know you’ll enjoy what they have to offer! Let’s go...
About Wheelworks Multisport
Wheelworks Multisport is a triathlon team based in the greater Boston area sponsored by Wheelworks bike shops in Belmont and Cambridge. We enjoy training for the swim, bike, and run; racing in the New England region and beyond; and supporting each other in our individual goals. Above all, we like to have fun!
Being a Wheelworks Multisport member links you to one of the most exciting and fun triathlon communities in New England. We organize regular team events, such as socials and training activities. Many training activities are geared towards people who are new to the sport. One of our most popular activities is a weekly ‘practice tri’ that includes a short swim in the Mystic lake, bike lap(s) around the lake, and an out-and-back run.
We welcome members of all abilities and experience. Our low membership dues ($65) have not increased in a decade. Membership gives you access to sponsor discounts, race discounts, team resources, a mentorship program, group events like our annual training weekend in the White Mountains in May, Swim Clinics both indoor and outdoor, track workouts, group rides, runs and much more.
In 2021, we are launching our Diversity Scholarship program to encourage individuals who identify as from an under-represented group to enter the exciting sport of triathlon. More detailed information and link to the application can be found on our website. We also have an optional mentorship program that pairs new members (or those looking to achieve new personal goals) with experienced athletes to provide support for your specific goals or challenges.
With fingers crossed, we are looking forward to resuming racing in Massachusetts later this year!
