I pre qualified to represent Great Britian as an Age Grouper at the European Champs 2015 by finishing 3rd Brit in my age group last year. I am raising the funds needed to get me onto the start line.
About the project
Triathlon competition is split into elite professional athletes and amateur 'Age Groupers'. Whilst some Age Groupers secure some snippets of sponsorship, usually by way of free kit, our race entry and travel are all self funded. The challenge of being an Age Grouper is to fit in many hours of training around a 'normal' working life, I am immensely proud to work full time, study part time, and have the opportunity to compete for my country. Having funded myself to get fit enough to make the most of my place in the team, I have now run out of funds and need £400 to pay the race entry.
