Chair – Harrison Levitt
Hi, I’m Harry and I’m super excited about being this years chair of the triathlon club! I started tri at the end of my first year as a way of keeping active after suffering an injury that stopped me playing rugby. However, shortly after joining I fully threw myself into the sport and never looked back. The club really allowed me to develop a passion for the sport in my own way, meet some of my best mates and go on some great adventures. Even after a few years of being in the sport, you’ll still find me desperately trying to stay afloat in the STV pool, lying spread eagle after crashing my bike in every race or pacing every run I ever do like it’s a 400 sprint! I really hope that everyone who plays a part in the triathlon club this year experiences the whirlwind of wonderful times and friendly faces that I did!
Events Coordinator – Ruth Shaw
Hi, I’m Ruth, a second year sport and exercise student. I love anything endurance related! I’m also obsessed with parkrun, so you’ll see me every Saturday at the skyline once it’s back up and running. As your events coordinator I want to make sure that even with covid, we get some races in this year so we can all test out fitness improvements. I joined tri last year and made some great friends even though the year finished in March. I’m by no means the fastest to I really want to encourage other beginners and recreational athletes to give triathlon a go, as I know you will enjoy it, and you will be welcomed and appreciated by all club members. I’d love to do a standard distance triathlon by the end of the academic year and hope that some newbies can join me in doing so!
Welfare and Inclusivity Officer – Fay Humphries
Hi I'm Fay, a 2nd year Biology student. I was new to triathlon when I started university, however I have loved the club's friendly atmosphere and as a result I have definitely improved in all 3 disciplines and found a love for the sport. I can't wait to get stuck in with the club this year and ensure that there is something for everyone regardless of ability. Alongside Ruth, I will also be leading girls' rides/runs throughout the year. Please email me if you have any queries or concerns, and I look forward to meeting everyone throughout the year!
Secretary – Lizzie Clarke
Hi, I’m Lizzie, a first year sports and exercise student and secretary for the triathlon club this year. I’m really excited to start my second year as a member of the club and be part of organising some of the amazing events and activities that I was lucky enough to experience last year. I came to bath as a runner but for me the triathlon club was the most friendly and welcoming training environment and I have met some of my closest friends in it too! I cant wait to welcome some new faces to the club and be part of organising some of the awesome activities that will be happening throughout the year!
Social Secretary – Byron Kirsten-Foster
Hi, I’m Byron the social sec for triathlon this year. I joined the club last year to try and increase my endurance due to being a bit of a novice in each of the 3 sports. I was able to meet some lovely people through training, the trip to Spain but most importantly socials. For which reason, although there will be some restrictions, I will strive to grant the same experience this year. I look forward to meeting new members and providing you with great memories from this year.
