Events Manager – Spencer Truscott
I first arrived at Nuneaton Triathlon Club a little chubbier and very much new to the sport. I enjoyed cycling, hated running and got my 25m swimming badge when I was a school boy. I came to the club to gain support from like minded people as I had started to enjoy all 3 sports. I thought what better way than to get a better understanding of the club than to come to a commitee meeting, very much like The Eagles Hotel California – you can never leave! I am now very much enjoying being a part of a fantastic club with a very friendly group of people. My greatest achievement with the club so far has been going from non runner to marathon in a year.
Membership – Fred Heath
