    About Sam Anderson

    Hi I’m Sam and I have been competing in triathlon since 2009. My journey in the sport has taken me all over the world. I have participated in events ranging from super sprint distance up to Half Ironman and have been crowned British and European Triathlon Champion at Age Group Level. I also went on to win further European medals and raced in the Elite British Super Series. I took a break from the sport in 2015 to have my son and put on 5 stone in the pregnancy so making a comeback was tough; but not impossible. With a bit of hard work I topped the podium of my first triathlon back.  [···]

    About Charlotte Hewer

    Hi I'm Charlotte. I've been competing in triathlon for about 6 years - initially it was a bit of fun with friends, but the more finish lines I crossed the more I wanted to keep going.  I’ve now completed a sprint distance all the way up to the ultimate ironman and did so in the space of 2 years. I’ve completed numerous half marathons and 2 full marathons as well as 10k and 5k races;  I've done dirt runs, fun runs and a number of swimming and cycling events too.

    About Katrina Marks

    Hi  I'm Katrina. I started running in 2010 when I entered a Cancer Research 5k race for life. I'll admit at this point in my life I was a 20+ a day smoker and I felt completely ashamed because I had to walk it. This was my turning point! I quit smoking and took up running!

    I had to take baby steps to start, building up to 1 mile, but then continued running with friends who talked me into entering the Wyre Forest British Heart Foundation 10k and that was it - after that I was completely hooked! I also discovered my love of Mud Obstacle Runs and going to the gym and I've since gone on to compete in half marathons.

    About Phil Hunt

    Hi I’m Phil, a family man with a passion for sport! I have been racing in cycling and most specifically on the tandem with my cousin, for a number of years, but I'm relatively new to triathlon - especially the swimming! My wife got involved with Tri Energy through their popular running courses and now enjoys her sport far more than she ever thought she would, and I'm hoping that when my 2 children are old enough they'll come along to the Tri  Energy Kids Sessions ~ I think they'll love it!  [···]

    About Nina Finch

    Hi I'm Nina and started running when I was in primary school (such a long time ago now). I moved to Worcestershire 5 years ago and have been lucky enough to meet a lot of like minded people who share my love for the outdoors. I've taken part in a wide range of events over the years from lots of 10km races for charity, 1 half marathon, 3 Tough Mudders, 5 Wolf Runs, numerous mountain bike endurance races and a number of military endurance events - most of which involved racing while carrying 35+lbs over the Brecon Beacons. I also have a passion for hiking and spend lots of time in Snowdonia. I've been lucky enough to travel to Nepal mountain biking and climbing, although I don't think I'll be summiting Everest any time soon. [···]

    Kara Tranter

    Tri Energy Coach | British Triathlon Level 1 Coach

    About Kara Tranter

    Hi! I’m Kara and I lead quite a busy life fitting in training, full time work, being a mum & wife, housework and all-important rest & recovery. Trying to fit in three sports into a week is certainly a challenge but where there is a will there’s a way! I am also a keen horse rider and have ridden for many years and owned by own in the past, unfortunately there really is a limit to what I can fit into a week these days so don’t do it as much as I used to. As a teenager I took part in long distance raft races and represented Great Britain in dragon boating at the European Championships where we won 2 silvers and a bronze in the three race distances.

    About Wayne Smith

    Hi all, I'm Wayne and I've been sharing my time between my wife, three young boys and running now since 2011/12. It all started back when I got a charity place to run the London Marathon, I went on to just about complete the marathon with relatively little training but on the way managed to raise over £5000 for the charity Tommy's. Since then I have turned my back on the roads and concentrate all of my time on the local trails, these days 'If there's not a steep climb I'm not interested!'. 
    I've completed all race distances from 5k to Marathon and I'm currently in training for my first of two Ultra's this year. I'm looking to now also focus some time on developing other peoples running techniques and passing on some of the many things I have learnt along my journey

  • I have started to enjoy training again

    Ian, Hartlebury,

    I have been training and competing in triathlons for the last 3 years but had hit a brick wall. I contacted Sam and with her help and encouragement, have definitely improved. I have started to enjoy training again; especially the swimming and running which were my weak points. Sam’s help and encouragement has given me so much confidence, I couldn’t have done it without her!.

  • Sam made me stronger

    Faye, Bewdley,

    After joining my local triathlon club with no experience (or even a bike) I needed someone to show me the ropes of how to race well and competitively. Not only has Sam made me stronger but coached me to my first standard distance triathlon which I only went and won!! Thank you Sam!

  • Great Tips and Advice

    Becky, Worcester,

    Transitioning to a new sport seemed really daunting but from the first meeting with Sam, I was immediately put at ease. Her advise and coaching has helped me believe in my abilities in triathlon and Sam’s experience as a triathlete really comes through with great tips and advice. This isn’t to mention her great attitude, she is truly inspirational and I’m looking forward to working with her as I continue in triathlon.
