Carolina Triathlon is built upon the belief that there is value to the athlete in being able to go to one shop and get everything you need for the sports of running, cycling, swimming, and doing triathlons.
I own Carolina Triathlon and I am a triathlete. I use the stuff we sell every day of the year. Triathlon has been one of the cornerstones of my life for seven years. Every week, I am a runner, a cyclist, and a swimmer. The store is committed to being the place you want to go to get the information, advice, and products you use in your daily sweat.
I did my first Ironman in Florida in 2003 and just recently completed Ironman Chattanooga in Sept. 2014. I've also completed several Half Ironmans as well as a few dozen Sprint and Olympic distance races. Our store is the one I wish had existed when I began doing tris years ago, when I still thought a brick was a building material.
Carolina Triathlon is a sponsor for the local triathlon club- the Upstate Triathlon Club. We also sponsor a number of local races and events, including the Freedom Rings races on September 11, the downtown 5K race, the Greenville Half Marathon in late October, the Tri to Cure kid’s triathlon in August and tons of other events.
All members of the Upstate Triathlon Club, the Greenville Spinners, the Freewheelers of Spartanburg and the Greenville Track Club, receive membership discounts at our store. In addition, we sponsor the Donna Pedala Women's Cycling Team and the Go-GreenEvents.com Cycling Team.
