Chrissie Came (Back) to Kansas

Chrissie Wellington - 2010 Ironman Kansas

Multiple Ironman World Champion, and two-time Ironman 70.3 Kansas champion, Chrissie Wellington, will return to Lawrence, Kansas in June to defend her title.

Chrissie is among a growing number of world-class athletes to make multiple visits to Lawrence and the Kansas City area as the number of world-class races in the area continues to grow. The friendly and generous people of Lawrence combined with the caliber of the event, the opportunity to finish on the “yellow brick road”, and even the live music durign the race, was enough to bring her back for the third straight year.

We had a great time playing our then-brand new song, “Chrissie Came to Kansas,” for Chrissie as she blazed the course last year and we look forward to having her back in the area to defend her title again this year.
