I am Pete Wilby. I began competing in triathlons in 2008 and found I had an aptitude for the sport. I competed in the world and European age group triathlons between 2010 and 2013 - sprint, middle-distance and long distance – along with Ironman 70.3 and other events, winning the World Long Distance ITU Triathlon Championships for the 30-34 age group at Belfort, France, in 2013.
I studied sports science at the University of Exeter between 2010 and 2013. On graduating, my studies, coupled with my competition experience, prompted me to start coaching.
I am a Level Three British Triathlon coach, a Level Two Training Peaks coach and Level Two Open Water Swimming Coach also qualified in strength and conditioning. I love coaching and seeing the difference it makes to people. I get enormous pleasure from seeing our juniors progress and from our adult athletes meeting their personal goals – like Ben developing from an inexperienced swimmer to the European championship, and Gerry becoming the oldest swimmer ever to swim the length of Lake Windermere. And I love working in this beautiful part of the world and introducing swimmers to the pleasures and challenges of our long-distance swimming adventures.
I hope you find the right sort of support for you on this website. But please do get in touch if you are uncertain about what is right for you.
