©2019 Open World Racing // Site Design JDial Creative

We are athletes, world travelers, and veterans committed to opening the world and connecting people through adventure travel and destination races.  

We've competed in numerous racing events at home and around the world, from Uganda to Colombia, and have found in them a way to connect with the larger racing community.  While we most often compete in triathlons, we also run, swim, and bike independently, and some of us are looking for an opportunity to jump into the booming trail racing circuit. Open World Racing offers you an opportunity to compete in off-the-beaten-path organized racing events, accompanied by unique cultural immersions, service projects, and adventure activities tailored to the locale.

Listen to our appearance on the
Lucha Lounge Podcast for more insight.

Katie’s triathlon experience is limited to the one she completed at age 12, where she literally came in dead last. Nonetheless she continues to be deeply interested in how people can connect through movement and transformative experiences like travel. She brings her expertise in business development and creative content marketing, particularly in video.

We're dedicated to leaving a positive mark on the places we visit through intercultural experiences and environmentally focused service projects. You will leave a positive impact traveling with us. 

By running through the streets and hiking through the mountains, you’ll see places normally reserved for the locals. 

Immersive, active, hands-on travel is not for everyone. You will push yourself, sometimes going beyond your comfort zone. But through this, you will develop a deep and lasting relationship with a new place and new people.
