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.
