The TTC Committee​

Ed

Chairman

An ex-rower, I took up triathlon at university really as a means to keep fit, and it was a number of years before I did my first race. Joining TTC in 2014 I was still very much a novice! Through the club's coaching and camaraderie, however, I have been able to significantly improve my times in all three disciplines and I've competed in sprint up to full-distance events.

By being on the committee I feel I am able to give something back to the club, while helping to maintain the club's friendly and welcoming nature. If you have any club-related issues, concerns or ideas, please let me know!

Paul

Treasuer

I am 51 years old, married with three grown up daughters. I have always enjoyed cross country running, trekking and cycling both on and off road and each year I set myself a challenge for the following year. Two years ago I decided my challenge for my 50th year would be to complete an Ironman distance triathlon. I will add at this time that my wife and daughters found this very amusing as they are all good swimmers and I certainly was not.

I joined TTC as it was the local club and found out what a real gem of a club it was. The coaching, support and friendliness of the members helped me enormously in my preparation for the Ironman.

I completed the Ironman (Cotswold 226) as planned and realised the enjoyment I had in preparing for the event was equal if not better than the goal.  I put this enjoyment down to TTC, all of the new friends I have made and the support it offers. It is a terrific club and I have decided to continue training and competing in triathlon. Having got so much out of the club in a short period of time I was very pleased to join the committee to help and support the continued running of the club.

Malcolm

Welfare officer

I have been a committee member for my 3rd year. I enjoy the welfare officer post and like giving something back to a great local club. I have taken part in Triathlons from sprint to Ironman. My current goals are based around long distance swimming.

Communications and Website

I began triathlons 3 years ago after moving to the area and having a go at one of the January aquathlons on my birthday (WHY?). Since then I have really enjoyed the training and social side of triathlon. The thing about triathlon for me is the fact that there is something for everyone! Last year I was lucky enough to go to the European aquathlon championships in Ibiza and qualify for the wor4ld championships in 2019. The best part about TTC is the support that the coaches give to everybody.

Mark

Secretary

Mark has been a member of TTC for around 9 years. He has competed in many single and multi-sport events and races from super-sprint to Ironman triathlon distances ("Don't ever let me do that again"), including twice representing GB in his age group at European Championships. He is currently aiming to complete the last of the 6 World Marathon Majors in Boston this year, trying to get his average for all 6 races under 3 hours. He is then planning to undertake his first 'ultra' run followed two weeks later by his first marathon swim. Mark says, in taking on the rôle of club secretary, he is pleased to be giving a little something back to the club that his given him so much and means such a lot to him.

Sue

Co-opted Member

I joined Tewkesbury Tri Club having learnt to swim 4 years ago from a complete non-swimmer. The purchase of a sailing dinghy prompted the decision to learn and get competent!

 

TTC is a fantastic, friendly club with inspiring members at all levels and disciplines. Lots of fun & support, always someone around to encourage you.

Saturday swim club – a chance to work extra hard & social coffee after, otherwise I can be found dog walking on Bredon Hill, sailing, horse riding or on kayak duty on the river. I am also one of the club's first aiders.
