Summary

Born in 1986 Dan began racing in the Elite ranks in 2011. 

As a youngster he won country and National medals in the 200 & 400 Individual Medley (IM) as well as representing his school on the soccer, rugby, athletics & cross-country teams. In his final year at school he qualified to represent Jersey at the Youth Commonwealth Games in Australia and won Gold in the 400 IM and Silver in the 200 IM.

Dan swam in the Commonwealth Games but the disappointed of finishing 9th inspired him to move over to triathlon.

Dan’s first experience was in short distance races and impressively finished Top10 in his first ETU race and got the Silver medal the World Aquathlon Championships in Budapest.

Inspired by his new coach at Team TBB, Dan moved from short course to Ironman he won his maiden victory at Ironman UK in 2012.

Coaching

Dan was awarded Scholarship to Coventry University and studied Exercise Science

When preparing for an event Dan recommends doing what the coach tells me and get a good nights sleep 2 night out.

His favourite quote is: Cant substitute time out on the roads for anything else

His cycling tip to the cyclists of all levels, get out no matter the conditions.

Dan said he can't do wthout his iPod or water so both are in his transition bag.

I have now been on two swim camps (September 2017 and October 2018) as well as a triathlon camp at Easter 2018. I cannot praise Matt and Martin highly enough. They have found an excellent balance of theoretical training and practical coaching, which has provided me with material improvements after each camp. The facilities they use, as well as the local geography combined with the small groups make for excellent training sessions. I am already looking forward to visiting again next year.

What a fantastic weekend! Sarah is an enthusiastic and cheerful teacher with a vast knowledge of the area, her course provided a great mixture of everything from packing your bag and nutrition to scrambling up a mountain in the driving rain! The whole weekend was a thoroughly enjoyable and challenging experience with lots of advice, support and breathtaking scenery along the way. I hope to be back for more!

Cannot recommend this course more highly. Fabulous weekend, took me about a week to come down from the high! Loved the blend of classroom and activities. We kicked off proceedings with a night run under the light of our head torches on Friday and thoroughly enjoyed two jam-packed days on Saturday and Sunday. Heading to the top of Siabod on Sunday was such a highlight. North Wales is a fabulous sight to behold and to be out there running in that environment was a complete blast. What better place to be running on 2 feet, and even occasionally on all-fours. Will definitely be back for another weekend with Sarah....do it!

Thanks for a fantastic weekend, I certainly got a lot out of it. I gained a big improvement with my navigation skills & look forward to using OS maps rather than relying on GPS. I've managed to secure a place in this years V3K so look forward to putting all the new skills I've learned to good use in June!

What an experience! I loved the physical challenge presented by running on some amazing terrains, as well as the mental challenge of navigating in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. Sarah is an inspiring leader: passionate, experienced and brimming with enthusiasm. Book yourself on this course!
