- Add Your Event | Press Coverage of Your Event | Athlete Interviews & Profiles
By reporting race results and news, we celebrate the achievements women are making in the amateur sports of cycling, power walking, race walking, running, and triathlon.
Filled with determination, grit and passion, these women are focused on realizing their goals in competition, and living their dreams of standing upon the podium as champions.
They stay committed to their training efforts despite the pressures and distractions of college, work, careers or entrepreneurial pursuits, raising children and caring for family elders, volunteering in their communities, and more.
We also cheer on the pro women who are shattering stereotypes, busting myths, demonstrating the power of spirit and confidence, attracting the attention of sports media, and growing the number of loyal fans.
They are truly setting new standards for the next generation of female athletes to surpass.
The website is a project of Slowpoke Divas and launched in July 2019.
Our Diva-in-Chief: Bonnie Parrish-Kell
Shortly before her 50th birthday, Bonnie decided to sign up for a sprint triathlon, and soon discovered how overweight and out-of-shape she was after years of focusing on her career. She joined a triathlon training group, learned how to swim efficiently, bought a hybrid-fitness bike, and some nine months later, crossed the finish line of her first triathlon. Bonnie has completed four half marathons, dozens of 5K races, numerous triathlons, several race walk competitions, and qualified twice for National Senior Games where, in 2019, she raced the 1500 meter race walk and the 10K cycling time trial.
She shares her adventures, opinions, and inspiring stories on SlowpokeDivas.com, a website encouraging maturing women to discover, share and celebrate the joys of a healthy, active lifestyle and sports.
