Heather Gollnick Completes Race Across America

07/11/2013 10:52, Published by Grant Johnson, Categories: Sports, People

In the summer issue of the print magazine we talked with Steamboat resident and five time Ironman champion Heather Gollnick. On June 22nd, Gollnick finished a 3,000 mile coast-to-coast race known as the Race Across America (RAAM). The RAAM is the world's premier ultra-endurance bicycle race; finishing is quite the impressive feat. Gollnick's team of four, known as "Love, Sweat, and Gears," finished in only seven days and averaged between 18 and 20 miles per hour throughout the race. The team started in Oceanside, California on June 15th and raced east through Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, finishing in Annapolis, Maryland. 

Huge congratulations to Heather Gollnick and her team on this massive accomplishment! Read about Gollnick's experience and get some triathlon training tips in Be Strong. Be Courageous.
