Graduating from the University of Leeds in 2014 with an honours degree in English Literature and Theatre Studies, Jenny started her career in PR before taking some time out to qualify as a personal trainer, Pilates instructor and beginner’s running coach. It was while running a successful freelance personal training business that she fell in love with triathlon.
After getting on a road bike for the very first time at the start of 2016, she went on to compete in several sprint races that year – with her sights firmly set on the Ironman distance. Since then, she’s completed Ironman Copenhagen, Ironman Zurich and most recently Challenge Almere-Amsterdam, where she secured qualification for Challenge The Championship 2024. Jenny has also completed multiple 70.3 races, locally in the UK and further afield, and she has also competed at the ETU age group Standard Distance Championships.
Jenny returned to marketing and communications in 2019, first working in the higher education sector before taking up a role as Content and Communications Manager for cycling and triathlon apparel brand, Stolen Goat. During this time she honed her skills as a writer, interviewer and recently appeared as a guest speaker alongside Louise Minchin, Rebecca Charlton, Helen Jenkins and Mel Berry for a panel discussion on women’s cycling at the National Cycling Show. Jenny is particularly passionate about helping more people to get active and find a sport they love.
When she’s not tapping away at her laptop, you’ll most likely find Jenny out training for her next race – with Challenge Roth and The Championship in the diary for 2024, catching up on the latest elite triathlon racing action… or being bossed around by her two sausage dogs.
