Knox Tri Club
I decided when I turned 30 that I wanted to do a triathlon. I’ve always enjoyed endurance sports but never thought I could actually compete such an event. I started doing some swimming when I met a lady who suggested to join Knox Tri Club. I attended a Thursday night run training session and never looked back. The club was welcoming and inclusive, it didn’t matter that I wasn’t going to win the race, it was about personal achievement and participation. The support I received and the amazing people I have met will be with me forever.
From the moment I participated in my first triathlon, something was triggered in me. It may have been the anticipation, the planning, the thinking, the three disciplines or the complete unknown....but I knew I loved it. Since my first race, I have progressed to endurance triathlons which includes 10 x half Ironman and 2x Ironmans.
Not coming from an athletic background, and battling asthma, weight and other health issues, triathlon has provided a fantastic outlet for me.
Additionally, I have met an amazing group of people who have become life-long friends. Being part of a community club provides support and encouragement in a safe and friendly environment.
Come and give it a 'tri'

My current focus is cycling and I love to get outside on my bike whenever I can. Over the last three years, I have participated in 4-day cycling events which have been supported and encouraged by Knox Tri Club.
I have held various roles on the Committee and love giving back to a club that gives so much support. I also love seeing others achieve their swim, bike, run goals.
