DC Triathlon Club

Holli Finneren

June, 2018

After playing D1 soccer and trying a few months of normal college life, Holli quickly realized she needed a competitive and athletic outlet.  She surprised herself with a 2nd place finish in her first race at the Georgia Southern Sprint triathlon with a borrowed bike and head up swimming.  A year later she was in grad school in DC, found a bike on Craigslist, and dove in head first to the local triathlon scene.  She’s gradually increased her race distance and currently races everything from

sprint to iron distance.
