One of the races I’ve always wanted to do, but have never had it align with my schedule, is the Esprit de She Triathlon in Naperville! (As an aside, Naperville is this hotbed of triathlon, but that’s another story!)
Inside of every woman – no matter what age – lies the spirit of courage, determination, strength, fearlessness and power – you just have to let her out. And, women from all walks of life will be doing just that June 11 in Naperville as the Gildan Esprit de She Naperville Tri returns offering an inspiring race for all paces and passions. Women of all ages are encouraged to invite their girlfriends and enjoy this designer race experience featuring a 0.5-mile swim, 13.3-mile bike and 3.1 mile run, high value participant gear, Lifestyle Market and more! Whether setting a good example for well … everyone, or challenging themselves to reach a new personal best–triathletes won’t want to miss Gildan Esprit de She Naperville, IL happening June 11, 2017 from 7am-11am at Centennial Beach. Gildan Esprit De She is the nation’s premier athletic event series for women.
The Gildan Esprit de She Naperville Triathlon was born out of the successful SheROX Triathlon previously held in Naperville in past years. Hosted at Centennial Beach, a site of summer fun that has charmed swimmers, sunbathers and picnickers for over seventy-five years, triathletes will be swept off their feet as they enjoy a calm swim and later on run along the beautiful Riverwalk Park run course.
After reaching the finish, the Gildan Esprit de She signature post-race rendezvous awaits! (This is one of the big reasons why I’ve always wanted to do an Esprit de She race!) Participants can celebrate success and enjoy tasty tapas and energetic tunes while browsing our bustling Lifestyle Market. It sounds like so much fun!
While I’ve never done the Esprit de She triathlon, I’ve drooled over the race experiences (weather aside) written by Kelly and Marcia. Both ladies have done the triathlon at least twice, so I am guessing you may see them there at this year’s event!
