Turks Head Racing History

Turks Head Racing is a team of devoted multisport athletes centered in West Chester, Pennsylvania. West Chester, originally known as Turks Head, and the surrounding towns in Southern Pennsylvania have a rich history in endurance sports and are home to many fantastic swimming, cycling, running and triathlon clubs. Most of our teammates continue affiliations with these clubs and the great work they do in our community to encourage a healthy life style as well as other charitable endeavors.

In late 2010 Olaf Schweidler, a competitive triathlete who was friendly with members of various clubs identified a synergy opportunity to form a competitive multisport racing team to celebrate the rich history of the West Chester area and to showcase the talent of multisport athletes that reside and compete in the surrounding area. Unlike the local running and cycling clubs, this team would not be open to everyone, but only the most competitive and passionate individuals committed to the multisport lifestyle. Olaf began sharing his vision with many of the local club members and by the spring of 2011 Turks Head Racing was formed. 

Today, Turks Head Racing is blessed with several individuals that have been recognized with All American and Honorable Mention Age Group designations by USA Triathlon. Moreover, most of our athletes consistently podium in their respective age groups and we have a handful of athletes who consistently produce top 10 results overall in events that they compete.  We have members of all ability levels.
