Committee 2017-2018

Your EUTri Committee 2017/18


Hazel Donaldson Hazel

I’m a 4th year Sports Science student. I’ve been in EUTri since freshers and never looked back, but have been involved in triathlon for 8 years. It all started with a bit of open water swimming, then long distance running before I got a road bike and really discovered triathlon as a sport. My biggest achievement in the sport was becoming the British junior middle distance champion (although we don’t have to mention there was only one other girl in my age group). I’m always keen to get newbies involved and break down the image that you must be an elite performer to do a triathlon, remember ANYONE CAN BECOME A TRIATHLETE. Main aims for this year include increased membership, increased race entries and increased performance!



Lucy Bowden

Hey I’m Lucy a fourth year Vet student and this year’s Secretary.  I joined EUTri a couple of years ago, loved it and now trying to get more people involved in our club! Everyone is always friendly and all abilities are catered for. So if you fancy coming along we train practically everyday so I’m sure you’ll see me about.

Nic 2Treasurer

Nicholas Allen

I’m an ecological and environmental science. This is my 3rd year in the club, last year I  was president and now looking after the club dolla as treasurer. I’ve been racing for a few years now and really enjoy the performance squad and the team spirit we have got going. Looking ahead I’m excited to be doing more high profile races this year!

Gus Cassie

I’m a fourth year vet student and have been involved with the club for three years. I joined initially as a cyclist but have since become really keen on running and have enjoyed the developing my swimming – from being very mediocre to distinctly average! I really like the inclusive nature of eutri, and am looking forward to working on sponsorship this year.

Eilidh Thomson

I am in second year studying biomedical Sciences. I have been with the club for one year and am in the performance squad. Great fun, great coaches and something for everyone – beginner to pro. I am also soon to be level 1 coach. My fav discipline is cycle as it’s the one I’ve being doing for the least amount of time and is very tactical in racing.  I have consistently been top 4 at Scottish sprint champs, ex-Scottish tri foundation squad member and third at the age group championship this year at Strathclyde park.

AnnaRun Captain

Anna Whittingslow

I’m a fourth year Sports Scientist. I will be the year’s Run Captain so look out for those Facebook posts with Monday’s run routes! I joined triathlon after rowing for many years and loved involving myself in a new sport. The runs are for all abilities so don’t be put off! Intervals are also a great way to get back into fitness after a long Summer enjoying the Sun. Look forward to meeting you all

RachelSwim Captain

Rachel Webb

I am starting my second year of studying medicine here in Edinburgh. I’ve been doing Triathlon since the age of 7 in my hometown Munich, reaching the Nationals in 2015. I joined EUTRI last year and had an absolutely amazing time with them! Whether you’re a beginner or a performance athlete, EUTRI offers whatever level of training you require. I particularly enjoyed the running intervals on a Thursday and the 2 swimming sets we have every Tuesday and Saturday. I was also pleased I managed to work my way up to the medium-fast running group for the distance run on a Monday! Best of all is the welcoming atmosphere within the team though; everyone is super friendly and bubbly and there are plenty weekend races, training trips and socials throughout the year which further help to bring the team together. I am now the Swim Captain for this year and hope to see all of you at our first training session!

moonaSocial Secretary

Moona Hoppula

I’m a Finnish girl from northern Lapland and I’m the social secretary for Eutri this year. I’m a 3rd year history and archaeology student and this will be my second year in the triathlon club which I’m extremely excited about because last year was such a blast! Eutri is a excellent club for beginners and for experienced triathletes; the training is challenging but most importantly it’s fun. I am a beginner in the sport but joining the club has given me motivation and opportunity to get better at it. Along with the training we have many fun socials coming up this year which will be another great reason to join the club. Triathlon can seem like a scary sport to start but it’s absolutely worth it, so I hope to see many new faces joining the club this year.

Meggie Williams

I am in my third year studying Physical Education. I joined EUTri last year originally coming from a competitive swimming background and competed in my first aquathon last year. The club gave me an opportunity to try the new disciplines in a relaxed and supportive environment, whilst also maintaining my swim training. It has a diverse community of members and sessions for every ability from beginner to performance, meaning whatever your ability there is something for everyone! This year I hope to compete in my first full triathlon!
