Zone3 Local Hero 2017 – Zone3 in conjunction with the Triathlon Centre @ Advance Performance are sponsoring a triathlete throughout 2017.
Toward the end of 2016 we invited applications for this sponsorship package and made our selection at the start of the year.
Our Zone3 Local Hero for 2017 is Kate Southorn who will be sharing her goals, training, races and results with us this season.
2016 was her season being able to compete after suffering a prolapsed disk, she completed 6 sprint triathlons as a weekend warrior at Blenheim and was 3rd in her age group in the Pitsford Standard Triathlon. Kate has great plans for this year and we hope the support she receives from Zone3 and Advance Performance will enable her to reach her goals.
Aims she outlined in her application were:
Apr. 02 – Harborough 100k Sportif
May. 07 – Pitsford Sprint
Jun. 17 – Dambusters Race
Jun. 24 – Dusseldorf ETU Sprint Distance Triathlon European Championships
Jul. 01 – ISOMAN – Quarter
Jul. 16 – Pitsford Standard
Sep. 17 – Weymouth 70.3
We will be keeping you posted on Kate’s progress throughout the year.
