GOTRIbal is a worldwide network of women who participate in endurance sports including running and triathlon. The goal of the San Diego based organization is to provide a support network through a basic ‘pay it forward model’ – empowering women through these sports, help them connect with others who share the same interests and enable them to achieve goals that they may not have thought possible.   GOTRIbal members are organized by ‘tribes’. There are currently 36 tribes in 15 countries around the world and 45 US states. The San Diego tribe is the largest with 86 members.

On Saturday July 17th, 2010, the San Diego tribe will be hosting their second event, “GOTRIbal in the Park”. From 8am until noon at the Ocean Air Recreation Centre. Participants of all ages and abilities are welcome to take part in an hour yoga session, a “Get Your Booty Strong” boot camp, a 2km run, and a mother-daughter duathlon. An impressive raffle and delicious treats will also be provided.

The event is open to all women regardless of age, experience, or skill.  All you need is enthusiasm and a smile! Membership of GOTRIbal is free, but you do not actually have to be a member to attend. Registration for this women-only event is available on the GOTRIbal website  – – and is $35 per individual or $45 for a team of two.

Additionally, on Friday July 16th, the group will be meeting at University City Physical Therapy from 5:30-7:30 pm to discuss upper body injuries and injury prevention with UCPT owners Renee and Gino Cinco.
