James is part of Chester Tri’s team of friendly faces for you to contact and meet, these are our Age Group Reps.
He represents our men’s 30 – 45 Age Group.
I joined Chester Tri Club in 2013 when I moved to Chester, initially just doing the running sessions. After chatting to many people at the club I was encouraged to give triathlon a go so I bought a cheap road bike and started going to the technique swims. Later that year I did my first sprint triathlon and have been hooked on triathlon ever since. Thanks to the great coaching at the club and endless sources of advice I’ve managed to improve year on year and completed my first Ironman event last year which I never thought I would be capable of.
Starting out in triathlon can be difficult as there are lots of things to consider so if you have any questions or want any advice on getting going feel free to drop me an email. The club is geared towards participation and there is always a suitable group to train with so don’t worry if you don’t think you’re fast enough as we all started in a similar situation.
