Wakefield Triathlon Club has a very broad array of members with a wide variety of experience levels and goals for the year.

A number of our members have agreed to regularly blog about their training and races. Hopefully through these blogs we will gain a better understanding of the different training plans that people follow, the challenges that people face and overcome in a bid to reach their goals and we can all experience the highs and lows that they go through.

We are sure that you will be able to identify with one or more of our bloggers and hopefully find these blogs interesting, educational and even inspirational!


Michael Hemsworth

The ‘lucky’ club member to be selected in the club ballot for London Marathon entry. He is keeping us up to date with his training and reporting on the race.

Chris Bahra

A triathlon rookie. With a bit of a running background he wanted a new challenge and what better than a triathlon? What will be his biggest challenge and how will WTC support him to hit is goal?

Zoe Smith

Balancing a demanding job, training and coaching for the club is a challenge for Zoe. After doing a number of long distance events over the past few years she is taking on a different sort of race this year. It will be interesting to see how what that is like.

Sarah Longfield

Another one of our triathlon rookies. In her first year as a triathlete Sarah wants to complete rather than compete. She has challenges to overcome along the way that it will be great to see her beat

Jenni Muston

when not trying to escape from gingerbread men is a British Age Group level triathlete, has recently become a mother and is planning to ‘go long’ for the first time.

Andy Donnelly

Andy has a year or two of experience with this triathlon thing now. This year however he is setting himself a very challenging target . . .

Mark Mills

After a fantastic year in 2016 culminating at the Age Group World Championships in Cozumel, Mexico, Mark has the difficult job of following it up this year. So what are the targets and what has he learned from 2016 to go even faster this year?

Sarah Hennessy

A well known face around the club and the winner of the award for the club’s most improved triathlete in 2016. So how do you follow that up in 2017?
