Esprit de She means something different to each woman who competes in this series. Esprit de She offers women the opportunity to compete in 5k, 10k, Duathlons, and Triathlons throughout the United States. It is an opportunity to celebrate women athletes, to support one another and provide encouragement, and an opportunity to get out there and do something new and different.

8/3/17, Maple Grove, MN
9/9/17, Westminster, CO
For some, it is a way to connect and race with friends and other women. For others, it is a way to race against themselves. I did my first triathlon in 2015 with Esprit de She and my second in 2016. A goal in 2016 was to compete in a 5k in a different state so I called a friend in Atlanta and asked if she would be interested. She was! We both completed the 5k and as a side bonus, her son joined us and also earned a medal. Over a few days, we had a great time celebrating and catching up. That is what this race series is about – celebrating with friends, doing something outdoors with friends, encouraging friends to do something they hadn’t previously considered, and enjoying the opportunity to workout together.
