Doug has been a club member for a number of years and started coaching triathlon in 2008. In student days he ran cross-country and on the track, but his main sport became orienteering at which he competed at international level. Later he was involved with organisation of the national orienteering squad and was GB team manager at World Championships.
Triathlon has been a new challenge. He brings a broad experience to the coaching role and enjoys helping others make their own journey towards achieving their goals whatever the level of ambition may be. He is equally happy coaching and supporting complete beginners and the club’s GSB athletes. On his own account he competes regularly and takes part in World and European Championships as an age-group triathlete
