Athlete of the Month


What’s your WHY?


In June of 2013, I married my wonderful husband, Lance. By the time our honeymoon came to a close, I was the heaviest I had ever been in my life, and just one pound shy of being considered overweight. As someone who has always been hard on myself when it comes to body image, this was a blow. So, I took action. It started out.

Thank You

You have helped us donate over
$3,000,000 over the years
just by getting involved!





Some of us race to get faster and stronger. Some to get healthy and fit. Some to lose weight. Others just to get to the finish line. Some of us race because how it makes us feel. Some to have fun and hang with our friends. Some race to give back to an important local charity. Some race in honor of someone we love or someone we have lost.

Regardless of your WHY, we are all united on a mission to improve our own health and fitness while building our community, giving back and improving the lives of those in need. We operate from a belief system that if we all give a little it adds up to a whole lot! Together, collectively we can achieve the extraordinary!


Who is the Best in the Northwest amongst the Why Racing Triathletes & Duathletes?

We created an annual Awards Series in order to acknowledge both speed AND the ability to endure within the sports of Triathlon & Duathlon locally. Winning one race or your age group is extremely impressive but can you sustain that type of performance throughout the entire season? Get points for how you do overall and in your age group and we’ll reward overall and age champions at the end of the season.


Why Racing Events Inc. offers athletes of all abilities, from the elite level to the back of the packers, the chance to successfully train for and complete various types of races including fun runs, triathlons, adventure events and more while raising awareness and funds for important community causes.

We will provide you with the guidance, support, resources and various types of training programs to help inspire you every step of the way.
