Amelia

I only did my first racing season last year and have podiumed at all races so far!

My best results would be coming 3rd female at my first middle distance at The Lakesman and then 2nd in AG (12th overall) at IM Turkey, which meant that I qualified for the IronMan 70.3 World Champs which are in Utah in October 2022. 

Going forwards I just want to get as much experience as possible over the next couple of years and see how far I can go. Alongside the IM 70.3 World Champs in October,  I go to Lisbon in May for the rescheduled Challenge Lisbon, and then the main focus will be IronMan UK in July alongside a couple more local races.

Full calendar: 

March19th - Grasmere Duathlon / April 9th - Stoneyhurst Sprint / 7th May - Challenge Lisbon / 3rd July - IronMan UK / 11th Sep Sandman Half / 29th October - 70.3 IM World Champs

I am so grateful to have Rinaldo's on board for next season as it has allowed me to enter some really unique, out there events that I otherwise wouldn't have been able to enter.

Firstly, the Celtman Extreme Triathlon in Torridon in June this year, followed by the Extreme X Triathlon in July. The latter being based in Ambleside so a little closer to home and all being well the man himself Mr Rinaldo has volunteered to be my support runner!

Throw in another ultra marathon and a night time half iron distance tri and we have a very exciting season ahead!
