Joe Roof


Joe is a native of Columbia, SC.  He has been married to his wife for almost 24 years and he has two wonderful children ages 21 and 16. He has always been involved in sports from football to tennis and now to swimming, biking, and running. He took up triathlons on a whim back in 2007 and was immediately taken by the personal challenge and the support of the members of the triathlon community.

In 2008, he started the NW YMCA triathlon club creating a group that grew to over 60 members placing on the podium at several Ironman events.  He has also served as the Race Director for the Tom Hoskins Memorial Sprint Triathlon for the last 7 years. Personally, he has completed multiple marathons and triathlons of all distances including 9 half iron distance and 3 full iron distance events.

Triathlon has truly become a lifestyle for his family. In his coaching, he hopes to bring the triathlon lifestyle to his athletes helping each to achieve their personal best. Let Joe help you “Strive, Believe, and Achieve!”  Email Joe today at!
