NAMES TO THE FACES
Below is a list of the current committee members, each with a specific remit for keeping the club on track. Click on their name to contact them if you have any questions you feel might fall under their remit.
President – Dave Stewart
Dave is a founding member of M3. He has competed actively in Triathlon since 1999, and continues to do so in the firm belief that one day he will actually get better. His background like most people starting out in triathlon was in another sport – running in his case. He progressed in this discipline steadily from Wannabe to Neverwas, and following a period of injury he started doing some cross-training and like many others progressed to Triathlon from there.
Adhering rigorously to his personal motto of “Slower, Older, Worse”, he has fluked his way onto the odd Age Group podium over the years in local races at a variety of disciplines and distances, including Duathlon, Cross-Triathlon, Aquathalon, and Triathlon at all distances up to and including 1/2 IM. On a number of occasions, probably due to some case of mistaken identity he’s been part of the GB Age Group squad at European and World championships in Duathlon, Triathlon and Aquathlon – which he wholeheartedly recommends to everyone, provided they are not trying to qualify in his age group.
When not complaining about his aches and pains Dave is a great advocate for triathlon of all ages and abilities. He points out to anyone that will listen, indeed even those who don’t want to, that M3 is a small and friendly club with a great team ethos, and good social program, and wherever your starting point, there is a way in and we will do all we can to support you in you goal whatever that may be. Triathlon itself is great for general fitness well-being,and a means of minimising training injuries and the short “careers” often seen in single discipline sport.
So what are you waiting for? – come on in – the water’s lovely!
