Hi I’m Steph, and I joined BTC in the Spring of 2017, having entered my first triathlon which was at Blenheim. I quickly caught the triathlon bug, and subsequently entered a number of events.
The pandemic and advancing age just about saw me retiring, but my lovely Tri friends had other ideas and saw to it, that that wasn’t going to happen. With the promise of ‘it will be fun’, I’ve been suckered in to entering all sorts of things which have taken me well out of my comfort zone.
I may not have done a triathlon in one go for a few years, but I’ve broken it down into its component parts with separate swims, bike rides and runs (walks) of varying distances.
Triathlon and BTC isn’t just for the young and speedy athletes aiming for PBs and a chance to compete for Team GB. It’s also for those who enjoy the camaraderie and the occasional event, just for the fun of it.
