We’re so proud to sponsor Jacqui Allen, originally from Fegg Hayes in Stoke-on-Trent, who is now a world class triathlete competing across the world.
A former fire-fighter based at Newcastle-under-Lyme fire station, Jacqui turned a passion for triathlon into a full time career. Along with husband Ben, they have both been frequent occupants of the winner’s podium for many years.

You can skip straight to 4.20, 17.19, 20.43 and 23.11 for some great footage of Jacqui mid-race, plus interviews where she discusses the challenges of competing.
Some of her achievements in 2019 include 1st Place in the National Cross Triathlon Champs, Xterra Australia and Xterra New Zealand, an event which Jacqui described as ‘an emotional finish…arguably my best performance at this race.’ She also finished 2nd place in Xterra Taiwan and the ITU World Cross Triathlon Champs which Jacqui says was ‘the race of my life in the deepest off road field I’ve ever raced in’.
We’re excited to see what 2020 has in store for her!
