Kathy has always been active in sports and the outdoors. She did her first sprint triathlon in 2006, and was hooked. She continued racing sprints, olympics, and had done a 70.3 a few times. Even though she took a hiatus from competing for a few years, she continued to train with GCTC. She recently retired from UPS after 35 years, and is looking forward to racing cycling, hiking, traveling, and spending time with her family.
Sara Cory is a transplant to Nevada County, moving to the area after college in 2009. She completed her first sprint triathlon in 2014 and has fallen in love with the sport since then. After competing in several Olympic distance races, she found a true love for long course triathlons at Ironman Santa Cruz 70.3. When she’s not training or hanging out with her husband and her friends in the club, she can be found working on her vintage trailer, or at work as a Human Resources Technician for the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools.

SecretaryAlicia does not do any of the triathlon things!
She is active and likes to play, but having to train for something is not her jam. If it’s outside and is a way to hang out with people, she’ll be there and do the thing. That’s pretty much how she ended up in the Tri club when she moved back to CA in 2009. She was friends with some of the founding club members when GCTC was in its infancy, and has been cheering them on every year since then. A reliable fixture on the sidelines at most races, Alicia has made spectating, mule-ing, and cowbell-ing for the athletes a sport of its own.
Come join her, it’s fun!
