Meet the Committee 2016-2017

Harry Preston : Captain

I’m a second year studying sports science and have been doing triathlon for 3 years now. It’s great knowing that each session you turn up to is going to be full of friendly faces and a top level coach to help you achieve your goals, no matter how big or small!

Alex Foyn : Vice Captain

I’m in second year, studying Geography. I’ve been doing Triathlon for about four or five years. The Tri club is really friendly and inclusive no matter your standard which really appealed to me when I joined.

Hannah Brown : Treasurer

I’m going into my third year studying Mathematics. I joined last year with absolutely no triathlon experience, I just enjoyed the occasional run or swim and a few spin classes at the gym. I loved being a part of the club last year as it is a great way to keep fit and have met some amazing people along the way.

Finn Ramirez ; Stash Sec

I’m in my final year of studying International Relations. I only joined the club last year from a primarily cycling background. The club’s diversity and inclusive participation are among its best strengths and they make for a brilliant atmosphere, may it be during training or at our socials. I thoroughly enjoy being part of the triathlon community and encourage anyone who’s thinking about giving it a tri!

Ellen P-K : Social Sec

I’m Ellen and I’m in second year studying human geography. Tri club is a great society with a lovely group of people – there are so many different abilities in the group, everyone feels involved. There are plenty of sessions on offer each week and cater for all abilities. It’s a great way to stay fit and it can be taken as seriously as you like.

Quang Tran : Social Sec

This will be my second year doing Triathlon. I joined at the very start of first year to try something new and then from there, I’ve stuck around ever since. The Triathlon club is always an enjoyable experience. Overlooking the blood, sweat and tears of training, there is always a welcoming and friendly atmosphere which makes coming to these sessions much more worthwhile. For such an individual sport,  EUTriC really brings out the social, encouraging and more competitive side of Triathlon which is what I love so much about it.

Lizzie Hobbs : Events Sec

I’m Lizzie and I’m a third year PPE student. Having rowed in first year I decided to give myself a break and try yet another brutal pain sport! I’ve been part of several AU clubs but nothing compares to triathlon, the atmosphere is incredible and so welcoming! Even when I’m getting lapped in the pool or crawling round the track and everyone else is at the gates ready to head home, the team is still so supportive and I absolutely love it! The only thing they forgot to tell me when I joined up; training makes me so hungry, it’s quadrupled my food bill!!

Alice Carr : Publicity Sec

I’m a third year studying Anthropology and this will be my third and final year doing triathlon at Exeter! I joined triathlon in fresher’s with a background of swimming and rowing and have loved it since. The benefits of the club are extensive; fantastic coaching, multiple and varied sessions, and a great social network. My favourite thing about the club is being able to make the most the beautiful Devon countryside; be it on the group cycles or open water swimming along the coast.
