My name is Tyler Woodward, I’m an MBA student at North Central College in Naperville Illinois, and the Graduate Assistant for their swimming teams. I received my bachelors degree in accounting from Eastern Illinois University. I grew up playing hockey and running through High school and spend 1 year running in college until I found competitive triathlon. I currently race Olympic and Sprint distance triathlon along with a bit of draft-legal racing, but might throw in a 70.3 sometime soon.
2018 was a breakout year for me setting a new Olympic PR of 1:56:02, Sprint PR of 55:24 and a 34:39 10k split at Boilerman Olympic. I placed 10th at 2018 USAT Olympic Nationals 20-24 AG and 3rd at 2017 USAT Olympic Nationals 20-24 AG.
I hope to carry this momentum to next season for some solid podium finishes at Collegiate (both days) and Age Group Nationals against very stiff competition while I also start dabbling in draft legal racing for my pro card. After a 2nd place finish at the Chicago Triathlon, I’ll heading out to New York for the LifeTime 2XU Championship and very excited to be mixing it up in the premier/elite wave there as well.
I am thrilled to be teaming up with some stellar athletes from all over the nation and to be part of Full Send Triathlon.
