Having run for many years on her own, Lucy always considered clubs for elite people only but soon changed her mind when she joined the Striders in November 2014 and realised what a friendly, helpful bunch they were! With running as her first love, bike growing as her new love and always struggling with the swim Lucy tapped into the knowledge of other members and took advantage of the clubs training sessions in the 3 disciplines before she attempted her first half triathlon in May 2015…The Marshman at Lydd.
Since then Lucy has been an active member of the club taking part in 5 Aquathons; 3 Duathlons; 3 Sprint Tris; 1 Olympic; 3 Half Tris; 5 Half Marathons; Brighton Marathon (GFA place London); London Marathon (GFA place London); Ride 100 & Ironman Full Triathlon Vichy. Lucy was delighted to be presented with Strider of the Year and Joint Triathlete of the Year (shared with the amazing Lynne Hacon) at the club awards in 2017. If I can be of any help with anything please ask! 🙂
