Mel Hayes

BTF Lvl 2 Tri Coach

I was a runner before I was encouraged to give triathlon a go by a friend. Only problem was I could barely swim and had not really been on a bike since I was a child. But I love a challenge and the deva divas ladies only triathlon 5 years ago was the start of my love for the sport. Roll forward 5 years to 2015 and I have raced for Great Britain 3 times as an age group athlete, twice at the European Middle Distance Championships and was a bronze medallist at the Long Distance World duathlon Championships in Switzerland in 2015. It has been a fantastic journey from a lady who used to swim breaststroke with her head out the water to being able to represent my country. I now want to give something back to the sport that has given me so much and that’s why I have decided to coach. I want you all to love the sport as much as I do, and realise that with hard work and some fun you too may achieve things you never thought you were capable of.
