Traditions you may ask? Well to start, having professional triathlete Scott Tinley request this event to our founder Terry Davis, then having it passed down to his daughter Colleen for her senior project, and now watching her still produce the event with great enthusiasm is just one way to look at it as a tradition.
For you, there may be many ways of creating a tradition at Scott Tinley’s Triathlons…
It could be racing the same beautiful course through the hills of San Luis Obispo, watching your kiddos finish their first triathlon, taking a trip to Avila Beach with your family the day after race day, gathering with friends at the local wineries, or eating at your favorite restaurant in downtown SLO.
For us, the tradition is within the “grassroots” of triathlons, and providing a little something for everyone.
It may not be as much about the glitz and the glam, but instead the overall feeling of accomplishment as you dive into the water next to your best pal, or as you hop on your bike next to your biggest competitor (whom you will find yourself cheering for in the end!), or as you cross the finish line with your family and friends cheering you on!
What doesn’t sound good about surrounding yourself with family, friends, fitness, and the beautiful California Central Coast? Over here at Tri-California, we don’t think anything else sounds much better!
Whether you’re continuing traditions or just beginning them, you will always be a part of our Scott Tinley’s Triathlon tradition.
