Designed for people of all abilities, whether seasoned athlete, the weekend runner, or even an entire family, the 5K will also be led by former season 9 contestants Cherita Andrews and O’Neal Hampton.
“Committing to a healthy lifestyle is a lifelong journey, and it’s events like the 5K at the San Francisco Triathlon at Treasure Island that help me stay motivated and on track as I continue to lose weight and improve my health,” Sorrells said. “By participating with my fellow Biggest Loser past contestants, I hope to inspire and help others, continuing what I started while on the Biggest Loser ranch.”
The San Francisco Triathlon at Treasure Island will bring together nearly 40 former contestants from “The Biggest Loser,” as they participate in the triathlon and runs July 9 – 11. The former contestants competing in the 5K and 10K will cheer on the triathlon participants after completing their run.
