Rosalind Jarrett Sepulveda

Rosalind

A nine-time member of Team USA, the 2008 Aquathlon World Champion, 2011 Xterra Southern California Trail Run Series Regional Champion, and 2015 USA Triathlon Duathlon National Champion in her age group, Rosalind Jarrett Sepulveda is living proof that a love of multisport can start at any age. Sixteen years ago, after receiving news that her health was declining, the then 54-year old competed in her first triathlon, encouraged by the support and camaraderie of the Los Angeles Triathlon Club. Passion for a new sport was ignited, and within two years Jarrett was named LA Tri Club’s Volunteer of the Year, and within four years she had qualified for her first World Championship. Her health is now better-than-ever, and her passion for swim, bike, and run continually grows. She has now become a frequent fixture atop local podiums, with a goal of conquering the courses at the Legacy Triathlon.

Awards Ceremony

The Awards Ceremonies will take place at Alamitos Beach in the event's Finish Line area,
