Will Clarke’s Top Tips for beginners at Hever Castle Triathlon

Will Clarke’s Top Tips for beginners at Hever Castle Triathlon

August 9, 2017

With just seven weeks to go before the Hever Castle Triathlon, elite triathlete Will Clarke, who will be joining us at Hever Castle to take part in the Super Sprint, has shared his tips for novice athletes to make the most of their experience.

Olympian Triathlete Will Clarke, originally from Cambridge, will head to Hever Castle to compete in the Super Sprint race this September. Having taken up triathlon on the recommendation of his school French teacher, Will hit the headlines in 2006 when he won the U23 World and European Championships. Competing at the top level of the sport, he represented Great Britain at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, finishing 14th and was crowned British National Champion in 2008 and 2009. He has since set his sights on Ironman distances, finishing 4th at Ironman Texas, and 2nd at Ironman UK in July. Will is set to compete in Ironman Hawaii, and will enjoy the Super Sprint as part of his preparation.

The Hever Castle Triathlon, which will welcome 7,000 competitors over two days of racing, allows athletes of all abilities to compete in the world’s fastest growing sport. Although there will be a number of high profile elite triathletes, such as Will, there will also be a great many first-timers, who will enjoy their first experience of the sport.

Will has shared these three top tips for novice athletes in order that they can make the most of the occasion:

• Try to keep a perfectly even pace, so that you finish the race almost as fast as you started it. This should guarantee a good experience without any blow-ups.

• It’s important to fuel yourself, especially for the longer distances at Hever. Work out which sport nutrition is necessary to get your round the route with enough energy to tackle the hills.

• Remember to enjoy the experience, and thank your friends and family for their support once you’ve finished. Make the most of your achievements and celebrate!

There’s still time to sign up for the Hever Castle Triathlon on 23rd and 24th September here.
