Hereford triathlete and member of Wye Leisure Kathryn King will be heading off to Hawaii in October 2014 after seeing “a dream come true”. Kathryn has become the first Hereford Triathlon Club member to qualify for the prestigious World Ironman Championships in Kona. She achieved her ambition after coming home in second place in the 35 to 39 category at Ironman Wales in Tenby. Kathryn finished the two-and-a-half-mile swim, 112-mile bike and marathon in 11.42.10, just 25 seconds behind the winner.
Her long preparation for the big event in Hawaii will include competing for Wye Valley Runners in the Herefordshire Cross-Country League and hopefully a visit here and there to chill out at the club along the way!
All of us here at the club are very excited to have Kathryn as a member and wish her well in her training for the 2014 event.
