GOOD LUCK DAWN!
Here we have Dawn turner, Sales Administrator at Valley Road sporting Skoda cycling Gear kindly provided by Mr Murray.
Dawn first started getting into fitness when she completed her first London marathon in 2012, after this strived for something more. She then decided that triathlon would be her next big goal, but before this built herself up with Duathlon which is cycling and running event’s and by Aquathon events which consists of Swimming and running.
Once Dawn had got the experience from the previous races she competed in a Triathlon series in Cornwall. This lead Dawn to the next big thing. Not slowing down for a rest she competed in 2015 and 2016 in a half Ironman named Wimbleball at Exmoor, advertised as one of the world’s toughest 70.3 mile race. The Race consists of 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile Cycle and if that wasn’t enough 13.1 mile run!!
2017 led Dawn to complete her first full Ironman at Bolton in 14.36 hours. Now this may sound like a long period of time but when you see the mileage covered this really is a great personal victory and something to be proud of (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike 26.2 mile run).
Late 2017 took 6 months off due to injury smashing more than just PB’S, she smashed 4 metatarsals. 4!! Dawn made a comeback in June and did Blackpool Sands super sprint Triathlon taking 3rd place, 1st in Age Category, She has now finished the season after completing the PerranPorth extreme surf triathlon. It doesn’t stop here as Dawn plans on completing another half iron man in future ventures. May we wish her the best of luck.
