Tim Tri-Cymru Manager, Amy Jenner, says
“I’m thoroughly looking forward to assisting the Tim Tri Cymru representatives at Nottingham this year. This is a great opportunity to lead the way and for us to showcase how passionate Welsh Triathletes are on a British stage”.
Events Officer, Gareth Evans, stated
“This is an exciting opportunity for Welsh Triathlon and its members to show what can be achieved within domestic age group racing. We’re a passionate bunch at the best of times, so the opportunity to go to a British Championship as one team, wear the Dragon and represent Tim Tri-Cymru against our English and Scottish counterparts is one we hope captures the imagination and grows in 2020”.
