Deccan Sports Club (DSC) is a charitable sports club registered with Charitable Commission Kolhapur. The club is formed by a team of athletes and triathletes, we are mostly ranging from the age group of 18 to 50 years old, although our youngest team athlete is 12 years old. Since the past 3 years, we have participated in various national and international marathons as well as triathlons. And in a short span of time, our team of athletes achieved titles such as Ironman and Ironman 70.3, while many others achieved podiums in national events
Why was this club formed?
Today’s young generation is mostly into computers and electronic technology and they have forgotten to play on field, so all of us from different age groups and professions and different sports came together and formed this club to spread awareness and importance of sports.
The idea of conducting a triathlon in Kolhapur came from our combined desire to promote fitness and simultaneously challenge it. Through our experiences, we gained a rock solid attitude towards life and it is what we wish to share. Swimming, cycling and running being the basic fitness sports activities, we thought of generating awareness in the youth of our country so that they can further compete in national and international events. But mainly, we want to show people what being stubborn is like. No matter how tough, how long or how hard it gets, we want to show people what it feels like when they don’t give up.
*Activities we do:
1) Running 4 times a week
2) Cycling 2 times a week
3) Swimming 5 times a week
4) Stretching after our work out
These activities are done under trained and hired coaches.
