Mike and Chrissie have tried to keep fit over the years fighting off mid-life crises and flab.

As a Psychology teacher at Silverdale School, an education manager at Sheffield City Council and parents of three children (now aged 24, 19 and 17) we have tried to keep fit around the demands of busy lives. Both are parishioners at St. Williams.

Having entered Llandudno Sprint Tri,  a world champs qualifier, we both achieved the goal of qualifying for the World ITU Triathlon Championships in Cozumel, Mexico. 

We have had the benefit of friendly and specialist triathlon advice from Matt (Head Coach Racing TNT and use the excellent facilities at Virgin (Broadfield Road).  Mike's had great swim training and support from Hathersage Masters, Swim Revolution and both swim at the wonderful Harthill reservoir run by Yorkshire Outdoor Swimmers.

Clearly there are costs to this venture. British Triathlon are unable to fund Age Groups so we will have to pay for our flights, accommodation, GB strip, bike carriage, entry fees and sports insurance amongst others. 

We are looking to secure support from well wishers and anyone who wants another pair from Yorkshire ("it's not just the Brownlees") to represent Great Britain at the World Championships in this Olympic year.

We offer a number of rewards for your donations. 

Should you decide to donate we would be extremely grateful. Thank you for your support.
