Team LUNA Chix

The Team LUNA Chix Program brings together women interested in learning new sports, staying active and inspiring others to do the same.

Team LUNA Chix was established in 2002 by LUNA, the makers of the Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, to simultaneously provide quality experiences that draw women onto the roads and trails, share stories and tips to help build confidence and motivate women to connect in sports and in their communities, and support the Breast Cancer Fund which educates women to look at their surrounding environment as a source for healthier living.

The program includes 27 LUNA Chix Local Teams and the LUNA Chix Pro Team. The local teams are found around the nation and include women at all levels, from beginners to casual competitors. The pro team includes 11 of the country’s most amazing (and winning) professional athletes. Several times a year the Pro Team gets together with the Local Teams to share their considerable experience and encouragement. Together the teams train, compete and support each other, while also fundraising for LUNA’s non-profit partner, the Breast Cancer Fund.

You will find LUNA Chix teams in the sports of road cycling, mountain biking, running and triathlon across the nation! I encourage you to see if you have a local LUNA Chix team in your area and join them!

I am the team leader of the Seattle Triathlon LUNA Chix! We've been a team for 5 years and work hard to have fun, enable women to grow in the sport, and get outside and play!

May through September we hold weekly workouts in the various disciplines. We do open water swims, bricks, mini tri’s, and other fun stuff. All ability levels are welcome, and we will have someone who will lead the beginners, intermediate and advanced athletes.

We also host monthly clinics where we work on things like open water swimming skills, transition practices, and running skills. These clinics are led by a professional and raise money for the Breast Cancer Fund.
And the good news is....Team LUNA Chix is looking to start new teams!

Join over 250 other Local Team LUNA Chix members across the country who host weekly women’s events, monthly clinics and conduct semi-annual fundraisers to benefit the Breast Cancer Fund. Our 27 teams share the common interests of sports, lifestyle and a desire to inspire women to get outside and play and to try new things, set goals, be active and stay healthy.
