Bio

I was born and brought up in Fegg Hayes, Stoke-on-Trent. Triathlon and traveling the world is now my life. My full time job was a Fire-fighter based at Newcastle-under-Lyme fire station. 5 years ago I took a sabbatical from the fire service to enter into full time triathlon training which has led to me becoming a full time professional elite athlete. I started as an age-group athlete using triathlon to keep fit around my work as a fire-fighter. Through hard work, determination and creating opportunities I’m now training and competing full-time against the best triathletes in the world. My career so far has seen me compete in over 30 different countries around the world. I’ve raced in the British Triathlon Super Series, French Grand Prix, ITU European & World Cups. I currently race on the Xterra World Tour circuit, ITU Cross Triathlons and In2Adveture off road tri’s as well a few not drafting races each year. More recently I have stepped up a distance and competed in Ironman 70.3 races finishing 3rd and 4th.  Im now very much focussed on off road triathlons which some would say is the more adventurous side of triathlon. I travel around with my boyfriend Ben Allen Australian pro triathlete for most of the year. We race the Oceania and Asian pacific races in our winter and head to the US, UK and Europe for summer. I’m coached by Alex Hall who is head coach at Nottingham Triathlon Club. I love to come home and train with the groups around Stoke on Trent. I swim with COSSACS swimming club at Fenton Manor, Ride and run with NTC over the scenic lanes of Cheshire and Staffordshire. I am a family girl and love nothing more than to come home and spend time with my family, friends and catching up with local sponsors who have supported me throughout my career so far.

    Hi Jacqui, did I see you at the Aquathlon last Thursday at Blithfield? Someone looking very much like you came flying towards me on the return leg of the run 🙂
    I really enjoyed the event, I have completed it before with Burntwood Tri Club and fortunately we were not last! This is my first year as an Ironman (well 70.3 at least), looking forward to much shorter Derby Tri on Sunday 15th.
    Best wishes for the future!
    Paul
