Male triathletes can be kind of annoying, especially if you’re looking for a quiet girls’ weekend. And why not spend that girls’ weekend in California’s Russian River Valley, sipping Sonoma’s finest Pinot and racing the world’s greatest women-only race? Barb’s Race, which coincides with the Full Vineman Triathlon, offers a women-only half iron-distance race in California’s wine country with proceeds benefitting the Vineman Cancer Charities. It’s tough to beat all that.
