The 35th Annual SLO Triathlon – another fun, successful year!

We were honored to spend this past Sunday near the finish line of the 2014 35th Annual SLO Triathlon, and are extremely proud to mark this as our 35th year as a sponsor. Just like every year, we are so happy to have been a part of this celebration; the participants, the vendors, and all the volunteers brought their own level of dedication, energy, spirit, and stories to share.

Father & Daughter Father and daughter celebrated their finish with big smiles.

Family Time What a family! This daughter (in middle) drove up from Long Beach to surprise dad on the morning of his birthday. Her gift to him? Competing in a triathlon together; something he has always asked for!

Team Rhino The Famous Team Rhinos (see the rhino hat at left!) allowed our staff (from right: Jake, Garrett, Jami) to pose for a picture.

Brothers These two brothers may have their own favorite colors. Would you say so?!

There were CLIF Bars & CU Chomps for everyone! There were free CLIF Bars & GU Chomps samples for everyone!

Congratulations to all of the participants for completing the race! And thank you to Rich Ogden and the City of San Luis Obispo for making the SLO Triathlon happen for 35 successful years; we are looking forward to 36.
