The MRU Triathlon Club is now Bíos Triathlon Club!

We are a Triathlon Alberta Affiliated Club


The name Bíos is one of the two words the ancient Greeks had for life – Zoé and Bíos.  Bíos described the activities of life, while Zoé meant something more like organic life.  We chose to recapture the original meaning of Bíos, as the name that describes what we are most interested in accomplishing as a sports club: living a healthy lifestyle.  Therefore, at Bíos Triathlon Club we train not just for competition as an end-in-itself but also as a community, training for the benefits of a healthy, active life.  We are training for life! 


Welcome to the Bíos Triathlon Club!

(Formerly the Mount Royal University Triathlon Club)

The Bíos Triathlon Club was original founded at Mount Royal University in Calgary Alberta as a student club. In September of 2021, the MRU Triathlon Club moved to a fully external club model which allowed for a more diverse facility use and broader community reach.

We believe a healthy mind can flourish through exercise and social connectivity. No experience level is required to come share our passion!

We focus on sports training for a healthy lifestyle, encourage and facilitate social enjoyment and continue to support student-athlete participation. 

Students and 16+ members of the public are welcome!

We offer top class triathlon coaching and training for individuals who love the outdoors and enjoy an active lifestyle!

What is Triathlon?

Triathlon is a continuous aerobic sport involving swimming cycling and running. Distances for events vary, but typically start at 500m swim, 10km bike & a 3km run for a Super Sprint distance. Triathlon training requires training from 5 to 15 hours a week.

Many folks start swimming with us a couple of times a week and find time for the other sports on their own. The commitment level is completely up to you. Set your own goals and we will try to help you get there!

Our training philosophy…

Every athlete is different.

let us help you discover the training program that works for your unique and individual needs. We understand that your training is about more than competition. We take our training seriously, but the MRU Triathlon Club is about health, fun and social connections!
