Karen 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. 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. Then in August 2014 she completed her first iron distance race, the Cotswolds 226, and is thrilled to be able to call herself an ‘Ironman’ (or woman)!
