We believe in working hard and playing hard – perhaps even harder! Every year, a company challenge is issued. We’ve taken on century bike rides, triathlons, 24 hour running relays, obstacle races and more. Last year, we instead debuted the first ever T9 Challenge: an event for T9ers, by T9ers, where teams of (you guessed it!) even more T9ers would take one another on out on the course. The inaugural event was a great success, and this year’s follow up was another banner affair.

It’s no secret that here at Title Nine we believe in working hard and playing even harder. Every winter, the company challenge for the coming year is announced. We’ve tackled century rides, a Ragnar Relay, a Vineman Sprint Triathlon, and last year took on Tough Mudder.
This year, we decided it was time to do something different, really different: we built an event for T9ers, by T9ers, to take on teams of – you guessed it – more T9ers.
And thus, in September 2013, the first ever T9 Challenge was born.
And now, as the dust settles, we can say that it was a great success!

As part of one of our T9 Challenges, our Product Pusher, Katy, participated in the Napa Valley Century Ride a few weeks ago alongside a whole team of T9ers. Some gals participated in the 100km race and a handful went for the full 100 miles – we asked Katy to share with us what it’s like to bond with your team riding through beautiful wine country. Rough life at Title Nine, huh Katy? (more…)
For the past few years our founder, Missy Park has presented a company wide fitness challenge that sets concrete, sweat enducing fitness goals that put our technical wear to the test. This year we’ve decided to up the ante by dedicating 2009 to a series of races (aka challenges) that lets us T9er’s work our way up to one final personal goal. Whether that be one little Waterfront 5K or the finale event, the Big Kahuna Triathlon.
We’ll be training with our own cycling, swimming, and running coaches. We’ll share our not-so-top secret training schedules and training journals with you. If you find yourself in the bay area then come and join us for any of our 2009 T9 Challenge events (listed below). We’ll be the ones in the skorts.
