Kemah Triathlon



Twenty-Four OutRival Racing athletes raced either the Kemah Sprint on Saturday or the Kemah Olympic on Sunday. Well over half of these athletes saw personal bests in their races! This race was definitely a "swimmers-race" in that the swim was quite challenging compared to other races.

Rick finished almost an hour faster than last year's race, and Richard and Lance saw over 10-minute Oly personal bests.
