Meet our very friendly team of coaches and professionals
BTF and BCF level 2
About Jon StaniforthI have been involved with triathlon on and off for over 15 years, coaching for the past few. I am BTF and BCF level 2 qualified. I first came to the sport when I started swimming and running during the winter to maintain my cycling fitness. Soon I realised that triathlon was easily accessible and friendly for all levels of competitors, so I took up the sport. [···]
BTF Level 3 coach
About Bob PringleMy triathlon initiation was the Mansfield Sprint of 1985 where, on crossing the finish line, every competitor was given a bottle of wine. I drank mine with a celebratory curry that night and I’ve never looked back! [···]
About Xavier LeuthrotHi to all, I’m Xavier with an X. I fell for triathlon about 6 years ago after my sister set me up for one in the south of France. With a catering and teaching background, I now fill in my spare time with all those elements that make our sport so enjoyable and challenging. [···]
About Matthew HartleyAfter being encouraged to enter my first sprint triathlon in 2009 you could say that I came to triathlon fairly late. I had always understood that you had to be fit to do triathlon, and as living example of someone with triathlon experience, I hesitate to say 'triathlete', I can now say that this statement is not true. [···]
About Sarah AltonHi I’m Sarah. I was persuaded by a friend to do my first triathlon about 5 years ago. After initially thinking "never again!" I decided to do some training, have another go and see if I could improve. Then I became hooked! [···]
