Beth is a BTF level 2 qualified coach and holds a Sports Science degree.  A keen sportswoman her whole life she discovered triathlon in her 30’s and this was her first foray into endurance sport.

She has seen a rapid improvement with multiple GB Age Group qualifications at both Sprint and Olympic distance. Late 2014 she secured her spot for the 2015 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships in Zell am See. Starting as a complete novice to all 3 disciplines Beth understands exactly what it’s like to start in the sport and the demands it can place on an individual as well as trying to balance managing a busy full-time job and family commitments. Beth is a very enthusiastic and approachable coach keen to help support her athletes to achieve their individual goals.

Meet Beth…

“I’m the teams SE representative having relocated recently from Chester. Outside of triathlon I enjoy playing golf, love to ski and enjoy watching pretty much any sport. Out of race season I enjoy cooking (and eating!).
Since taking up triathlon I have developed considerably as an athlete in all 3 disciplines – jack of all and master of none has meant my improvements have come across all sports and made me a consistent competitor at most races. My favourite distance to race is middle distance (70.3) as it’s a great challenge as well as a hard and fast race. My first ever triathlon was Dorney Lake sprint in 2009 and my favourite race to date was the IM 70.3 Pays d’Aix. It was such a fair course, a beautiful lake swim, a hilly bike leg and a warm run around the town. Although for atmosphere I have not found anything to beat Challenge Roth!
