About Kendra

The triathlon is in honor of Kendra Chiota Payne. Kendra was a dedicated student, athlete and world traveler. On January 11th 2006, while on a team training ride climbing up Gibraltar Road,  Kendra was struck by an asphalt truck and killed. Kendra is remembered by all as a diverse, colorful individual whose incredible athletic abilities were matched only by her modesty. Her tenacity and spirit continues on in all of those touched by her life.

SantaBarbarians along with LearnLocal.com will be at the event as official sponsors and will be providing photography for the event!
