Name: Sam Adkins
Location: Bournemouth, Dorset.
About me: Since moving to Bournemouth in 2012 my love for the outdoors has grown. We’re super lucky to have a lot of Parkrun’s, running clubs, cycling and outdoor swimming groups probably because we have lots of beautiful places to do these things! A side effect of this however is knowing a bunch of people who have done a lot of really awesome things… and I have a fabulous training buddy, who never ceases to amaze and, to enjoy the miles with.
My day jobs include partnership work with a third sector organisation to promote Recovery and social inclusion whilst running around after my little MunchieCat.
Previous experience: Running since 2015; but fairly new to multi-sport with one 70.3 in 2020 with a heap of mistakes thrown in ☺.
Current goals: Complete long course in July. PB at 70.3 in June.
Bucket list events: Jurassic Coast Challenge, LeJog, (I keep watching the Norseman documentaries on YouTube).
Any other random facts: My first attempt at triathlon was a virtual 70.3 in lockdown.
