There are few triathlon communities as passionate about ‘their’ sport as those that compete in Extreme Triathlon events.

It’s a format, discipline – in many cases, a lifestyle – that has captured the heart of Great Britain’s Caroline Livesey in recent years. From podium finishes in Pro IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 races, Caroline has been drawn to the world of XTRI, experiencing one of the most epic moments of her sporting life in 2019, when winning the Canadaman Xtreme Triathlonin a sprint finish!

With Caroline, along with husband Mark, seeking out more Extreme adventures around the world, Caroline is passionate about spreading the word on this format of racing, which can be a truly life-changing experience, whether you are competing or support crew.
