We especially love articles submitted by individuals and our members.

Articles

We are looking for training articles, triathlon stories, your first triathlon, gear reviews, training tips, motivational and personal stories and any special commentary.

Video Articles

A new feature.  Video is a great, new medium to get content across to people.  Using your digital picture camera or digital video camera, you can create 'how-to' articles such as setting up a transition area to fixing a flat or a day at the races.  Combined with a short article that you compose with the video, you are guaranteed to get a lot of exposure.  Contact me first so I can enable you to upload video.

Podcasts

Would you like to have your own radio show on BT?  Most computers and digital devices will let you record audio and mix-in music.  Contact me first so I can enable you to upload your audio podcasts.

"What can I do?  I am a beginner myself and haven't even trained or competed yet?"

  • You can send us your motivational story on why you have decided to do triathlons.  This will make a HUGE difference in helping others make that change to a healthier, happier lifestyle.

  • If you love to write, you can document your progress - kind of like an online diary...you would write monthly summaries of training and life.  This will help the timid realize that we are all one and the same ordinary people.

"Ok, I have at least one triathlon under my belt.  What can I do?"

  • Help out in the discussion board, encourage conversation and answer questions.

  • Become a monthly columnist and write about topics for the beginner and even advanced techniques and training...beginners have and insatiable thirst for knowledge.

  • Have a one-time topic that you would like us to feature?  This could be anything from nutrition to training to injury prevention.  No problem.  Just write it up, send us any relevant pictures an we will highlight it on the main page and reference it where it applies. 

Regional Columnist

  • Become a regional columnist for your part of the world.  You can report on triathlons and races by the amateur and professional or certain events and races in your part of the world.  You will have your own section on the main page to feature your monthly column.

  • We at BT hope that columns like this will bring diversity to this great sport.  We hope to hear from you! 

Product Reviews

  • Do you have a product experience you would like to share?  Write it up!  We will feature it on one of our weekly columns on the frontpage and make it into our archives.  Please include relevant pictures and DO NOT slam any products.  Try to keep it as unbiased and neutral as possible BUT we appreciate your most honest opinion.

Diet/Nutrition?

  • Has a particular diet plan worked for you in conjunction with triathlon training?  We would love to hear about it and feature it!    Before and after pics would be great!  A lot of users could benefit from your opinion.

You CAN make a difference in someone's life. 

*Many thanks to our past and current editors for making this all possible!
