Dervla Ireland

Role: Vice-President

About: I'm a 3rd year medic, and this is also my 3rd year in triathlon! If you have any questions about joining triathlon send them my way - similarly I'm also the person to ask about our snazzy kit. A keen first aider, so let's hope we don't meet in that capacity... 

Fun fact: I own a Bonsai named Bastien.

Matt Phillips

Role: Treasurer

About: I'm a 3rd year Maths student and have been part of the club for 2 years now. I'll be responsible for the clubs finances, including: sponsorship, budgeting and event financing.

Fun Fact: I won a Christmas rap battle in secondary school.


Emily Walton

Role: General Secretary

About: Hi I'm Emily, your general secretary. I'm a third year vet student on the mysterious SB campus, hence my passion for sheep. However my passions extend to triathlon, especially the running aspect. I'll be organising all the clubs emails and calendar, as well as being in charge of communicating this information to the rest of our members.

Fun Fact: I love sheep.




Sam Broomhead

Role: Club Captain

About: I'm Sam a second year Biology student. My job in committee, alongside Katherine, is to lead circuits , plan Sunday bike rides, organise leaders and other UoN Tri events. I’ve been doing Triathlon for 6 years now and having had so much fun with the club last year, decided being a part of the committee would be ideal in taking my love (obsession) for the sport to the next level. Hopefully that will rub off and you’ll get as much out of the tri club as I do. 

Fun Fact: I bring chocolate bars and energy gels to clubs on a night out.

Katherine Owen

Role: Club Captain

About: I'm Katherine, a second year medic and I started triathlon at the beginning of first year. I'll be organising training and training camps alongside Sam. If you have any queries about training, send them our way!

Fun fact: In my first three triathlon races last year I had a puncture in each one - gator skins are the way forward.







Chris Koh

Role: Events Secretary

About: 3rd year Maths & economics student. I'll be organising the GoTri Events and the most important event of the year - the Varsity Triathlon.

Fun Fact: I can juggle.

Hannah Gibbs

Role: Trip Secretary

About: I'm a 3rd year Nat Sci Student and long time triathlete (providing I can stay vertical on my bike and use my legs on the run). I'll be organising the popular Majorca trip as well as the local training camp in the Peak District.

Fun Fact: I have an exceptional sense of balance.

Adam Ford
