Robin Dijkstra is our lovely Chairperson – Robin who has been a member of the club for 1.5 years.
Doing a Triathlon has always been on my “bucket list”. During the COVID period I got really “Un-Fit”. I picked up sports again, but wanted a new challenge. I learned about Plymouth Triathlon Club and did the taster sessions. What surprised me is that “The Club” made an individual sport feel like a ” Team sport”. The atmosphere in the club, the support and guidance of the coaches and the involvement of the members were all great and really motivating.
Bit about myself;
Sorry cant help it, but I am Dutch, could have been worse if I was born in Belgium.
We (my family and me) moved down to the UK in 2020 for my work. I work within the Royal Netherlands Marines Corps and am here on an exchange base. Besides me both of my kids are members of PTC and are enjoying the various training elements what the club is offering.
Looking forward to the Team Relays in Torbay in April. Last year we competed there twice and I think its a great event to race with other club members. Definitly doing this again! Who’s joining?
I signed up for a middle distance race in May and want to do 2 or 3 shorter triathlons throughout the year. Interested in a swim run… maybe..
Thank you all for your involvement in the club, and a special thanks to the coaches who make it possible for us to train week in, week out.
I will now hand over the “Snorkel” to Matt Searl and ask him to introduce himself to the club.
