Chapter president - Lilly Campbell
Meet Lilly Campbell, the driving force behind Tri-Loco's Louisville chapter. Her journey from a half marathon to becoming the chapter's president embodies inspiration, growth, and the creation of a dynamic community. Back in 2017, Lilly's running adventure led her to connect with a group of inspiring athletes from Tri-Loco during a half marathon. Drawn by their vibrant spirit and inclusive atmosphere, she knew she had found her tribe. Her unwavering commitment to showing love, passion, and respect for fellow athletes led her to embrace the role she holds today.
Lilly's athletic evolution is noteworthy, transitioning from a hurdler to an endurance athlete. A former college hurdler and record holder for the 60m hurdle at Centre College, she delved into longer distances after her first mini marathon in 2017. Triumphs followed, like conquering 5 x 70.3s and achieving Sub-5 club status. Notable accolades include being the 2022 KY state champ runner-up and numerous podium finishes. Eager to take on new challenges, she is now embracing gravel triathlons as her primary discipline.
As Tri-Loco Louisville's president, Lilly's mission centers around inclusivity – the heartbeat of the chapter. Every member's value is a priority as she fosters a sense of belonging, reflecting the welcoming spirit that drew her in. Beyond the racecourse, Lilly unites people through shared experiences off the track, nurturing bonds that go beyond athletic achievements.
