My name is Claire Lloyd and I represent Great Britain in Triathlon. I race in the 35 – 39 age-group and for the last three years have qualified to race at the Triathlon World Championships in some stunning locations around the world.
I’ve been racing since 2009 and can honestly say I love my sport! Triathlon is something I do because I enjoy every second of every aspect of it. Racing in my age-group for Great Britain I receive no funding from any governing body. Over my previous years of racing I’ve funded my passion, but now I would like to give you the opportunity to share that passion and help me to be the best I can be.
I’m looking to raise as much as I can to cover my annual racing costs for 2015, which will eventually take me to the World Championships in Chicago, USA if I qualify. I have a separate account for all my triathlon expenditure and will keep any excess rolling over for coming years. I’ve set my target at £3000 so need every little bit of your support as possible.
That said, my annual costs are usually in the region of £4000+ and break down as such.
- Coach: £300 + £35 for every 1-2-1 session I have (approximately 1 / month)
- Kit: in the region of £200 – £300
- Petrol Cost to get to and from races: anything in the region of £400+
- Race Entry Fees for the season: in the region of £600
- Hotel costs for qualification races: £50 (only one this year, all others I can drive to on race day)
- Travel package to Chicago, incl. flight and accommodation: £1900
- Nutrition for the day before, and race day: £50
I’d like to thank you in advance for your support, whether you’re able to do so financially or simply to share this page so it reaches as many people as possible. In order to get your help I have to achieve 50% of my target, so any help will be greatly received.
