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 (except in 2010 and 2021). Each year the UCSB triathlon team generously donates a proportion of the race entrance fees to the Kendra Chiota Payne Memorial Fund.
The 2022 running of Kendra's Race scheduled for Saturday, February 26 has been postponed to the autumn. Anyone interested in learning more about the race should go to the UCSB TriTeam website via the link below.
