Currently turning professional having now received my elite racing licence, after a very successful 2011 season-results below. Main goals are to be competitive on the European Xterra circuit in 2012, including the European and World Championships. For 2013 I am aiming to compete out with Europe and aim to qualify for the Xterra World Championships in Hawaii. Furthermore, as part of the Gold for Glasgow talent identification scheme I will be aiming to qualify for the commonwealth games in a cycling discipline.
At the moment, I am focusing on competing in cross-country and duathlon throughout the winter and working consistently to improve my swim.
I have secured 3 small sponsors in the form of kit; The Running Company, Rock and Road Bikes and Reflex sports. I am now working to engage and attract more sponsors in order to support me to reach my peak as an athlete.

Preparation of marketing materials and presenting membership opportunities to corporate organisations.
Maintaining relationships with members to encourage membership renewal.

Researching, identifying and proposing strategies to increase membership uptake/retention and improve the membership experience.

A triathlon involves a swim, followed by a cycle, and finally a run. Some triathlons have pool-based swims while others are done in the open water, often with wetsuits.
As well as triathlon, we govern duathlon, which is a run, a cycle and then a second run. Aquathlons are a combination of a swim then run. If you’re interested in triathlon or any multi-sport event, check out www.triathlonscotland.org or call 01786 466921
