Craig has been a part of the club from the age of 7, now in his 20’s he has shown enormous commitment and enthusiasm to STC.
Having now raced over a range of distances & disciplines – 10years of competitive swimming to national level; triathlon over distances from sprint to full Ironman, completing his first full IM aged 19 in Wales; and shown an interest in mountain biking & off-road tri with a variety of endurance mtb races including 2 24hr races in Fort William.
So at a relatively young age, Craig is very keen to give back to the club which has helped develop his love of endurance sport! Getting involved in coaching at the club aged 17, Craig has worked through his Level 1, Level 2 in quick succession. 2018 will see him complete the Level 3 course too.
As he continues to support STC, he is also involved in the Triathlon Scotland coaching team for the National Academy & Skills School. Craig also coaches at Stirling Swimming Club Masters squad and various Come & Try sessions with Scottish Swimming.
With his true passion being with triathlon and helping develop the sport at all levels, he gave up his full-time work as a lifeguard and Fitness Instructor to pursue his love of coaching as a profession in 2017 and hasn’t looked back.
