CMU will be adding men's and women's triathlon teams this fall.
The university is expecting a roster of six to eight student-athletes with the intent of growing to fifteen or more.
There will be four scheduled races with the first being September 16th in Morrison, CO.
Each race will be 750 meters of swimming, 20 kilometers of cycling and five kilometers of running.
Head swimming and diving coach Geoff Hanson will coach the team.
CMU is the first university in Colorado to add a women's triathlon team. RMAC rival Black Hills St. also has a triathlon team as well.
