Mark Laing

Level 2 Coach

I was originally drawn into the sport of triathlon by some work mates with whom I was running during my lunch break. I really liked the fact that a being an all-rounder was an advantage over being a specialist in any one discipline. Prior to this, I had competed in a variety of sports including swimming, mountain biking, rowing, adventure racing and more recently simply running.

The chance to compete at Age Group level for GB in this sport is a great opportunity and I have been to European Championships in Austria and Switzerland.

My interest in how to train more effectively and finding myself helping out at   club sessions lead me to complete the Level 2 coaching course in 2015.

I find that training in a club environment benefits my enjoyment and development in triathlon. As a club coach, I hope to help the members             to benefit in the same way.
