Rachel McBride is a badass Canadian triathlete that doesn’t care what other people think. After spending her high school & college years as a “goth, punk rocker, artist type” (as she puts it) she moved to the freezing tundra of Ottawa, Canada for grad school and turned to running to stay warm. She quickly caught the triathlon bug and never looked back. After claiming her ITU National Age Group Champion title (25-29) in her first year of racing, Rachel went full force in to training and racing. Her hard work has paid off with results like a win at Ironman 70.3 Austin last year and 3rd at ITU Long Distance World Championships this year. Rachel has some serious prowess on the race course and doesn’t back down from any challenge. The “Purple Tiger” is on the rise and there is no end in sight for her success.
