Ferro Mosae is the student triathlon association of Maastricht. FM has got around 50 members who all have one thing in common: passion for endurance sports. Ferro Mosae has got a few international professional athletes, such as Sarissa de Vries (2nd in Ironman Maastricht) and Bart Candel (winner Israman), but there are also members who have just started and are happy to get to the opposite side of the pool. You might think that triathlon is a typical men’s sport, but around half of the Ferro Mosae members are female. FM has also got quite a big group of international members. This makes that FM provides a nice environment for athletes of all levels to train and race together!
FM’s swim trainer is Edo van der Meer, professional triathlete and founder of Edo Sports. He also leads the run training on Thursday. The real die-hards complete their Thursday training by doing the swim practice after the run training as well. On Saturdays, FM members go for a bike ride in the beautiful hills of Limburg, or go for a longer ride towards the Ardennes.
Apart from the training, there is plenty of room for social activities, ranging from having a (recovery)drink together after the swim training to different organized social activities. In fall, Ferro Mosae members go on a training weekend in Remouchamps (Belgium), in spring we go to Girona (Spain), and during the summer a trip to the French Alps is organized.
