Triathletes of the Dead Runners Society
This sub-list of DRS was started in 1994 after some badgering of the main DRS List Guy (Chris Conn) by one very persistent woman. Loreen Kail (rhymes with Smile) got her wish and Chris added this sub-list in the summer of 1994. Other than that we are a small group by comparison to the main DRS list and keep our topics mostly to the multi-sport events. This site is dedicated to the memory of Loreen Kail.

Thom Peters took care of the website and list from the winter of 1997 to the fall of 1999. He now 'only' takes care of the list. A million thanks go out to him for his hard work and dedication to the list! Any questions about the list should be directed to: tri-drs-request@listserv.dartmouth.edu. You can also use this email address to send messages to Thom to tell him how wonderful he is. *hint*

The current web geek for tri-drs.org is Emma. You should contact her if you have any suggestions or problems about the website. (Or you could just email her and tell her nice things. She won't mind. *grin*)

International Triathlon Union (ITU)

Triathlon was invented in the early 1970s by the San Diego Track club, as an alternative workout to the rigors of track training. The club’s first event consisted of a 10km run, an 8km cycle and a 500 metre swim.

In 1989, the International Triathlon Union (ITU) was founded in Avignon, France and the first official world championships were held.

The official distance for triathlon was set at a 1.5 km swim, a 40km cycle and a 10km run ­ taking from existing events in each discipline already on the Olympic programme.

This standard distance, now called ‘Olympic Distance’ is used for the ITU World Cup series and the Olympic Games.

In 1994, at the IOC Congress in Paris, France, triathlon was awarded full medal status on the Olympic programme and made it’s debut at the 2000 summer games in Sydney, Australia. The women’s event took place on the first day with the men competing on day two.

ITU now has over a hundred affiliated national federations around the world.

The president: ITU's current and founding president is Les McDonald from Canada. Les was a competitive age-group triathlete as well as a mountain climber, skier and semi-professional soccer player.

The Executive Board of ITU has 4 table officers and 7 board members

Each Region of ITU is represented on its Executive Board
