Kendra’s Race

Team Fast and Good Lookin’ Except One won the Kendra’s Race relay!

In 2006, after the death of their teammate and friend, Kendra Payne, the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) Triathlon Team changed the name of their annual triathlon to Kendra’s Race. The race has been held every year since then. Each year the UCSB triathlon team generously donates a proportion of the entrance fees to the Kendra Chiota Payne Memorial Fund

This year's race will be held on Sunday, March 10, 2019.  Kendra’s Race returned as a full triathlon in 2017 after the UCSB Tri Team worked out a new bike course. Find out more about the race by going to the UCSB Triathlon Team website -

Kendra’s Race has become an annual gathering where family and friends come together and renew the bonds of friendship created through their mutual connection with Kendra.
