Bio: I first became involved with the club in late 2013 when following the Tata Kids of Steel triathlon my daughter was smitten by the sport and subsequently joined LincsQuad to continue and progress the disciplines.

Over time I have seen the club grow across many facets and as chair I look forward to building on the work of my predecessors in developing the club and sport for our all our members to reach their potential.

Treasurer – Claire Hobley

Bio: I have been a family member of Lincsquad for a few years along with my hubby (who is a coach for the club) and my young daughter.

I swam regularly as a youngster but hadn’t done any sport until I took up ‘running’ to get a bit fitter. It was a few years before I was brave enough to join a club, but I needn’t have worried as LincsQuad gave me a very warm welcome and I was soon keeping up with others at the Quibell running sessions. So with the swim and the run coming along, it really made sense to get on a bike and give triathlons a go. I completed my first race 3 years ago and found myself entering more events every year. I’m always looking forward to the next challenge and can guarantee there will be a friendly bunch of Squadders to cheer me and fellow competitors along.

You’ll normally be able to find me at most of the coached sessions, either taking part or spectating, so feel free to come and have a chat.

Membership Secretary– Angelia Barker

Bio: I joined Lincsquad many years ago with a family membership because my husband and children have enjoyed taking part in quadrathlon and triathlon. 

I myself believed that you should only run if your being chased 😂 but I’ve now seen the importance of exercise and I’m completing my first couch to 5k. 
I’ve been on the sidelines of the training sessions for so many years, so I thought I could give more whilst I’m here and became the membership secretary two years ago and now I’m a new coach. Who knows what’s next but I’m enjoying it so far. 

Come and join our happy family and contact me for details. See you soon Angelia

Bio: I first joined the club the same year as the Dinosaurs became extinct or that’s what some would say.

My first involvement was as a Cycle coach down at Quibell Park for the Youth academy. A few years later the Triathlon bug struck so rather than race I took what I thought would be the easier option and became a level two coach. Nine years on and I can still occasionally be found taking the odd run and swim session. I feel the club is in a great place with a great committee and amazing coaches driving the training sessions forward. With the World Quadrathlon Championships making regular use of the Bomber and the ever popular Brigg Sprint we will be once again putting the name of LincsQuad on the big stage.

Bio: My neighbour, seeing me doing a bit of running and cycling, told me I should join LincsQuad.  As I didn’t swim, let alone kayak, I thought this at best eccentric.  However, he had sown a seed and I went to Beverley Sprint to give triathlon a go.  Breast stroke swim, hybrid bike and the slowest transition in history (thanks to finding out my running bra would not go on over a wet swimsuit) and I was smitten.

Although I came to Triathlon at an advanced age it is a wonderfully inclusive sport. I joined Lincsquad and found fantastic support, advice and friends.  I have served as a coach for the club and have now stepped up to TT Secretary to give something back to this great club.soon

Coaching Secretary– Mark Turner

Bio: I’ve been a member of LincsQuad since 2015. I started by taking my children to a Go-Ride event, then they became regulars at the Saturday cycling.

I then became one of the clubs cycling coach’s and started to participate in club sessions. Over time I’ve done triathlons of all distances culminating in an Ironman.

I joined the committee as I’d like to ensure others get the same family friendly and supportive experience my family and I’ve enjoyed.
