Tri Loco, founded in 2012 by fitness enthusiasts Gregg Garcia and Bryan Schmidt, is more than just a triathlon club; it's a vibrant community united by a passion for pushing boundaries and having a blast. Rooted in the belief that the triathlon journey should be equal parts exhilarating and supportive, Tri Loco brings together athletes of all levels to race hard, reach personal milestones, and most importantly, revel in the camaraderie that defines the sport. With an impressive spectrum of events spanning from 5k's to ultra distance triathlons, Tri Loco members are a recognizable force across North America, thanks to their distinctive kits. But Tri Loco is about more than just the finish line – it's a tight-knit family. Indianapolis and Louisville chapters seamlessly blend through shared races, social gatherings, and an ever-active online community. Lifelong friendships have been forged, and even love stories kindled within the ranks of Tri Loco. This club embraces all athletes, from the spirited "party packers" to those tackling the pinnacle IRONMAN World Championship. Tri Loco isn't just about individual pursuits; it's a hub for collective growth. Boasting an array of triathlon coaches, the club hosts weekly swims, runs, and rides that cater to diverse goals. With accolades like IRONMAN club challenge awards and a title as a club national champion with USAT, Tri Loco is a force to be reckoned with. However, their impact extends beyond the races, as they invest in their community through volunteering and charitable contributions, including their long-standing partnership with Ainsley's Angels. Supported by sponsors such as NormaLyte, Triplett and Carothers Law, RaceMaker Productions, Diamond Lake Sports, and Century 21 Lisa Stokes-Bear, Tri Loco is a force for good and great times. While they're serious about racing, they're equally committed to embracing life's joys – a true party gang in a world of Type-A personalities. So, whether you're cheering them on from the sidelines or joining in the festivities, if you spot Tri Loco, don't hesitate to say hello – because with Tri Loco, strangers are just friends you haven't partied with yet!
