About Kendra's Race

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. The race has been held every year since then and each year the UCSB triathlon team generously donates a portion of the entrance fees to the Kendra Chiota Payne Memorial Fund

Who is Kendra?

Kendra Payne was a dedicated student, athlete, and world traveler. On January 11, 2006, while on a UCSB triathlon team training ride climbing up Gibraltar Road in Santa Barbara, she was struck by an asphalt truck and killed.

Kendra had an amazing energy and zest for life. She was a global citizen who lived on three continents and visited over 30 countries during her 21-years of life. During high school, Kendra was captain of both her swimming and track & field teams at the Singapore American School (SAS). She participated and was awarded medals annually at this event. In 2006, SAS designated this event as the Kendra Payne Memorial Biathlon, in her memory. Kendra’s parents attended this event in December 2010 and November 2011.

At UCSB she became a triathlete and raced in a marathon and numerous triathlons in the US and Australia. Participating in sports was her passion and it was her way of life. It shaped her character and values and gave her self confidence.

Kendra was a colorful individual whose strong athletic abilities were matched by her humility. She encouraged others to believe in themselves and inspired them to go after their heartfelt dreams and goals. Her tenacity and generous spirit continue to live on in all of those touched by her life.

Swim course - 500 meters

The swim will start at Campus Point and make two left turns to end back at Campus Point.  The length of the swim will be approximately 500 meters for the sprint distance race.  Wetsuits are highly recommended, as water temperatures are usually in the upper-50's to low-60's. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bike Course - 13.0 miles

The bike is back!  This year, Kendra's Race will feature a two loop, 13.0 mile, fast and flat bike course around the Santa Barbara Airport.  Racers will make their way out of transition and head west through the UCSB campus via the bike path, most of which has been recently repaved.  After making their way all the way around the Santa Barbara Airport, cyclists will pass through Goleta Beach and head back onto the bike path towards UCSB.  After completing two loops, racers will then head back into transition. Below is a video of the bike course.

Run course - 5 km

The run course consists of a 1 loop run over a rolling 5k course. It follows the UCSB lagoon and consists of paved and hard-packed trails. Racers will leave transition and run down to the lagoon. They will run on the trail system on the bluffs before dropping down to the lagoon where they will pass an aid station. Runners will continue along the lagoon to the turn around point. After turning around, runners will follow nearly the same route back before sprinting to the finish in lot 6. 

Competitors will be treated to amazing views of the Channel Islands and the California coastline from Point Conception all the way past Ventura on what will surely be the most scenic run course they will race on all year!  Strava link: Kendra's Race 2018 Run Course
