While we are largely a community of triathletes, we welcome all athletes interested in the multisport lifestyle, be it duathlons, off-road sports, or whatever sports fulfill you the most. At Rocky Top Multisport Club, everyone can expect to receive encouragement from fellow Club members, whether you aim to break the finish line tape or are a back-of-the-pack athlete.
We pride ourselves on the camaraderie amongst our members. Every athlete tries hard, and everyone deserves support. We know most of our members have athletic goals, and thus it is our mission to help our members fulfill their athletic pursuits, whether it is to qualify for the Kona World Championships or finish their first Sprint triathlon. We do so by providing our members with resources such as structured training programs, training camps, Club training races, seminars, and much more.
Lastly, our sense of community does not just encompass individual athletes, but we also seek to build strong community bonds with the businesses that support us via our partnerships, especially those local to the Knoxville area. Community building takes two-way relationships, and we seek to give back as much or more as we get from others
