GB Triathlete and Level 1 British Triathlon Coach
Connect with Josh Holman
Josh is a 24 year old, amateur triathlete and Team GB Age Grouper. His journey into triathlon started in 2015, when he converted from a weight lifting enthusiast to triathlon addict and he hasn’t looked back since!
Josh’s triathlon adventure began when he decided to challenge himself, both physically and mentally, whilst also trying to raise money for charity in memory of a close friend. He signed up for the 2016 edition of Ironman UK with a little over 8 months to train for what he soon realised was a huge challenge! He fell in love with the sport and with support from family and friends, conquered the 140.6 mile course in 11:23:30 to crown himself an Ironman!
Since this race, Josh has gone on to win The Kings Forest 50k Ultra Run, place 2nd in the Ely Half Marathon and qualify to represent Great Britain in the 2017 Long Distance Triathlon European Championships in Almere-Amsterdam.
Josh’s passion for racing lead him to recently qualify as a Level 1 British Triathlon Coach. In addition to all his training commitments, Josh has a busy, full time job as a combustion engineer. He details his racing and training tips on his popular triathlon blog.
