GOTRIbal is pleased to announce that Chrissie Wellington, two-time Ironman World Champion and Ironman-distance World Record holder, will greet the 100 women who attend the inaugural GOTRIribal-Fest in San Diego on October 17, 2009. Chrissie will also lead a charity fun ride & enjoy a girls’ lunch to support the local chapter of the Girls On The Run nonprofit organization.

GOTRIbal Fest is a one–of-a-kind experience for women of all ages and experience who love running, swimming and biking. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with top professional athletes such as Chrissie, test equipment from top manufacturers, attend educational seminars from industry experts, share ideas, experiences and most importantly the passion for triathlon with one another! In keeping with the mission of GOTRIbal, the Fest will enable women to build their own support networks and “pay it forward” to help other women achieve what they may not have thought possible, in and out of sport. The GOTRIbal-Fest will be held at the Hyatt Bay Resort in San Diego on October 17, 2009, and is limited to 100 attendees.

The next day, October 18, Chrissie will be leading a charity fun ride and lunch for a random selection of Conference attendees. Twenty four lucky women will join her on a bike ride followed by food and drinks and a chance to ask questions, and yes – even get an autograph or two! Proceeds from this charity ride will support the San Diego chapter of the Girls on the Run.
