MALLORY, President

Mallory officially joined the DC Tri Club in 2017 after hovering around its events and facebook groups for a while. She participated in her first triathlon in 2016 on a bright orange hybrid Breezer and stayed “tri-curious” after that. Since joining the club, Mallory has participated in a variety of club events but became a devoted member of the event Masters swim program in 2019. She joined the board in 2020 as the Gear and Merchandise Director, a role that mirrors her day job almost perfectly. She took over the presidency in 2023.

Mallory still spends most of her time running but a nagging injury has let her explore more of the world on her bike. She also rides with a cycling team and loves to participate Cyclocross races in the fall and winter.


DAVID JIANG, Vice President / Director of Partnerships

vp@dctriclub, partnerships@dctriclub

David has been a member of the club since 2014 when he joined the New Triathlete Program and was hooked. Back then, he was not a swimmer so the swim for a sprint was rather intimidating and he was glad to survive his first race at Blackbear Triathlon. Thanks to the DC Tri Club’s Masters Swim Program (sadly no more) he was able to improve and gradually work his way up to longer distances. He enjoys more  running and cycling and can often be found roaming the hills of Rock Creek. The club has been such a welcoming community that he hopes to give back to the club by serving on the board.



A latecomer to triathlon and running, Patrick did his first half-marathon in 2010 and joined DC Tri that year when he did his first triathlon – the SavageMan half-iron distance race at Deep Creek Lake. From there he followed his taste for long-distance racing and went on to ChesapeakeMan (training via the inaugural DC Tri IM program) and Ironman Maryland, St. George, Lake Placid and Coeur d’Alene. He’s completed the Boston marathon and enjoys trying new things – like the Gettysburg to D.C. relay and Garrett County Gran Fondo Diabolical Double.

After several years of rehab and recovery, he was back to a full season in 2021 and looks forward to supporting robust programs and improvements in 2022. Patrick subscribes to the N+1 philosophy – that there’s always room for one more bike.


CHARLIE TAYLOR, Secretary / Director of Volunteering,

Charlie did his first triathlon in 2021 with a new bike, no training plan, and barely knowing how to swim. He flailed, huffed, and puffed his way through the hills in Luray–and somehow decided he would keep at it. A lifelong soccer player, he made the switch over to triathlon after seeing some former soccer buddies post on social media about how much they were enjoying the sport. When not doing triathlon or recruiting volunteers for various club events, you can find him working in international relations, petting random people’s dogs, and eating breakfast tacos.


JUENE RADER, Director of Programs

Juene moved to DC in 2018 and immediately fell in love with the area and the local races.  After running her first half and full marathon, she was introduced to triathlons and joined the club through the DC TRI NTP program in 2019.  Truly enjoying the sport, and even more importantly, the people she met, she signed up for several 2020 races and then spent 2021 trying to complete them.  She concluded 2021 by completing the Maine 70.3 and Waterman Olympic/Sprint double.

She is a regular at the NOVA Track works out, and Happy Hours.  She is eager to continue supporting the NTP program as a mentor and co-lead and excited to give back, as a member of the Board.


JULES BILOWICH, Director of Community Development

Without really knowing what they were getting themselves into, Jules joined DC Tri Club as a part of NTP in 2019. They were immediately hooked on the sport – and of course all the post-race food and comradery! Since then, Jules has trained and raced both in the U.S. and internationally and feels most comfortable at the half-iron distance. When they are not joining group bikerides, swimming in choppy open water, or avoiding run training, they’re working on affordable housing policy in DC, making art, or traveling for fun.


KELLY LEFLER, Director of Training and Racing

Kelly raced her first tri in 2011 and has loved the sport and its community ever since. Triathlon has been her favorite way to meet people in new cities. She joined DC Tri Club in 2015 after moving to DC at the start of training for her first ironman. She has been a mentor and co-lead for the New Triathlete Program for the last 5 years and Elite Team member for the last 4 years. She loves helping people happily and healthily cross their first finish line. While she enjoys racing all four distances, the full distance is her favorite.

REBECCA NA, Director of Communications and Marketing

Rebecca/Becca, a DcTri Club member since 2022, transitioned from weightlifting to triathlons via NTP 2022. Her cardio journey started with a love for hiking, extended to biking. Balancing corporate life and her cat lady status, she craves an annual adventurous bike trip. Pursuing multisport and endurance goals, Becca, as Communications Director, is keen to connect members and foster a sense of community through effective communication.

ELISE SERBAROLI, Director of Gear and Merchandise

Elise joined the DCTri club’s NTP (new triathlete program) in 2019, during a massive life transition involving an unexpected divorce, return to USA after 10+ years abroad and a dramatic career shift – you might call it a “tri” life transition! The swimming, biking and running with fellow new triathletes kept her physically, mentally and emotionally fit during that difficult time in a brand new city. After a few years of getting acquainted to the sport(s) and being happy to “just finish” a race, she’s now focused on speed in the Olympic and Sprint distance races. When not training, Elise works in AP Automation at AMEX, plays keyboard / sings in local bands, and thoroughly enjoys cooking, hanging in hammocks and traveling.
