UKCC level 2 triathlon coach

Sally came to triathlon in 2014, having already found a love of running and cycling over the previous few years.  With initial aspirations of 'just trying a few sprint races' she quickly realised it was the sport for her and her goals got bigger! Since then she has completed 2 Ironman races and has represented GB as an age group athlete at the World and European Aquabike Championships for the last 3 years.
Sally started coaching in 2016, progressing to level 2 in 2018.  She took over as Head Coach in 2019 and is currently working on her Level 2 + Diploma. She loves coaching and gets a huge kick out of seeing the progress the club athletes are making!



UKCC level 2 triathlon coach

Having never heard of triathlon before moving to Cupar I was encouraged to take part in the inaugural Cupar triathlon in April 1996. After completing the swim by breast stroke I was hooked. Later that year I was at the meeting that formally set up the East Fife Triathlon Club. I have been going almost every Monday ever since and have competed in triathlons ever since even as far away as New Zealand. Triathlon became my family's world for many years enabling me to not just take part in age group events but gave me the opportunity to watch high level performance. The triathlon moment I am proud of is completing Ironman Austria when I was aged 56 in a time of 12 hours and 8 minutes. It was only as retirement loomed that I was asked if I wanted to coach. I was happy to do so as I thought I must have some experiences to pass on. I have just completed my level 2 coaching course. I am a keen hill runner mountaineer and enjoy sailing dinghies competitively.



Level 3 coach, Junior Head Coach

Elise got into triathlon later in life having been a keen club swimmer in her youth.  Another coach in the club persuaded her to start coaching and she discovered how much she enjoyed working with others to help them achieve their goals.  Now one of a handful of female level 3 coaches in Scotland, Elise works across a range of coaching environments and has been involved as a support coach and team manager of the Triathlon Scotland Academy Squad for the past couple of years. 

 Having established a junior section in 2015 Elise doesn’t race as much as she used to but when she gets the opportunity for a free weekend and if there is an event nearby she always likes to have a go.
