Level I BTF Assistant Coach
Karen has been coaching the Exeter Tri Club's swimming sessions for 6 years now, and is an ASA Level 3 Swimming Coach, with a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification. She has been a swim teacher for 11 years, and also offers private swim coaching for those who wish to improve their stroke/technique. She coached a team of six men to swim a 2-way relay of the English Channel in September 2007, which took them 23 hrs 59 mins to complete! This was a great challenge and they raised over £10,500 for Marie Curie Cancer Care. She is a keen swimmer, but didn't become a triathlete until 2010, having been swept along by the enthusiastic people she met at the Club! To say she has 'got the bug' is a slight understatement, and now she can understand what all the fuss is about! In June 2012 she successfully completed what is said to be the toughest Ironman 70.3 in the world, at Wimbleball, and raised over £1,000 for Hospiscare. Next stop … Ironman?!
