    Story

    Hi, thanks for reading this, I am Katie, I live in Lincolnshire. By day I am a hairdresser, in the afternoons I am a dog groomer, and in the evenings I look after our two dogs.. somewhere between all that I am trying to be an age group triathlete!

    Four years ago I had never taken part in triathlon, probably never even thought about it.. but then that all changed. I took part in my first triathlon in 2014 and I just wanted to finish it (which I did).. Now I have developed some what of a bug for fitness and bettering myself!

    I work tirelessly training 12+ hour weeks, and three years on I just completed my second ever 70.3 finishing second in my age group! Woop!! I literally couldn't be happier.

    Back in June I entered Deva Triathlon with the intention of qualifying to race for my country, and although I was within the finishing percentage... I just missed out by position. I have been fortunate enough to get a roll down spot and the opportunity to go and show my country what I can do!

    Throughout this year I have been achieving personal bests in almost every race I have taken part in and I really believe I can go to Rotterdam in September and really achieve something..

    The downfall is like everything it costs soooo much money and its going to cost me £1545.00 to just get there! We intend on driving as we don't live too far from Hull so getting a ferry seems to make sense...

    Ferry: £380.00, Race Entry: £330.00, Hotel: £700.00, GB Tri Suit: £135.00...

    So as you can see if all adds up! If anyone would be kind enough to sponsor me, no matter how small the amount is I would be really
    grateful.. I have put £1000 because I can afford some to get there! If you have any questions just ask!

    Thanks so much for reading =)

        Fantastic news katie and well deserved. You are an inspiration. I almost rode for GB as a junior but my pony went lame, it's an incredible feeling to even get close. Good luck, you can do it xxx
