Splash-and-Dash and San Jose International

On the local front, the first event of the Skinfit Splash-and-Dash Series up in Northern California was a huge success. Athletes knocked out a 1500 meter swim and a 5k run. Skinfit was in FULL-EFFECT that night and we can't thank everyone enough for their support at this event!

Last weekend was the San Jose Triathlon/Pro-Challenge. Again, the Skinfit Racing Team and Team Ascent showed up big time and posted some solid results.

In the Pro-Challenge, Brian Lavelle rocked the new Skinfit Plasma Suit for the swim/run/swim/run portion of the race.

The past couple weeks of racing have brought great exposure to Skinfit here in the states and abroad. We are proud of all of our athletes and look forward to continued success this summer. Keep up the good work everyone and keep living the Skinfit lifestyle!

The past couple weeks of racing have been dominated by solid performances from Skinfit athletes from around the world.
At Escape from Alcatraz, Skinfit athlete Victor Plata used a speedy run to crack the top 5 and stand on the pro podium...congrats Victor! Also racing well at Alcatraz was the Stanford Triathlon Team, Team Ascent, and our very own Skinfit Racing Team.
At Ironman Japan, Nicole Klingler crossed the line in 9:52:52 to take her first victory, as well as the first Ironman victory for an athlete from the country of Liechtenstein.
