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. Kendra's Race has been held every year since then. Each year the UCSB triathlon team generously donates a proportion of the race entrance fees to the Kendra Chiota Payne Memorial Fund. 

The 2020 running of Kendra's Race will be held on Sunday, March 8.  (Kendra’s Race in 2019 was a bike-run biathlon.  Poor water quality due to heavy rains and mudslides forced the race organizers to drop the swim leg of the triathlon.)


Find out more or sign up to participate in the race by going to the UCSB Triathlon Team website.
