Mark is a GB triathlete from Herefordshire who is aiming high at qualifying for Kona!
With his 2019 season fast approaching, he is fully focused this time around to pull out a top result in Ironman Staffordshire 70.3 and to qualify for the IM70.3 World Championships in Nice, France.
His other “A” race of the season will be Ironman Wales! The goal is to smash his previous best time of 11:34 and go sub 11 hours and all going well, hit around the 10:30 mark...
The worlds would take place a week before Wales, so planning to peak during those two consecutive weekends. He pre-qualified (thanks to his result in Ibiza) to represent GB again over in Romania, but have taken the hard decision not to do the race, and give Stafford his all!
When mark is not training and racing, he runs his own flooring business and shop in Leominster, as well as spending time with his partner and 3 young boys!
