Our ambassadors are all excellent role models for the children of Great Britain.
They've all experienced first hand the positive life-changing impact that a sport like triathlon can offer, and are keen to encourage young people to lead healthy lifestyles. Our ambassadors support us through social media, event appearances and corporate partner support. They all give up their valuable time voluntarily. If you are interested in joining our team of ambassadors, we'd love to hear from you.

Lauren competed at two Paralympic Games as a swimmer. She has since specialised in Paratriathlon and represented Team GB in the Sports inaugural entry to the Paralympic Games in Rio 2016.
Lauren regularly attends Triathlon Trust events, inspiring children of all abilities. In November 2017, Lauren hosted the spectacular Golden Thread Ball, a black tie gala dinner, to raise funds for the Triathlon Trust and Starlight Children's Foundation. Over 150 guests attended and together raised over £11,800.
Lauren says, "Triathlon is a sport where it doesn’t matter how old you are, what fitness level, your ability or disability, or even your commitment! It is one that fits all and is enjoyed by everyone around the world, it is a community and family. For myself it has given me discipline, time management, high strength threshold, and most importantly determination to be the best and not except anything less than excellent! Triathlon is beautiful for encompassing a healthy balanced lifestyle.
The Triathlon Trust holds a big place in my heart
"The Triathlon Trust encourages children to explore the idea of sport and offers a variety of sport across the country to children from a wide range backgrounds and abilities. As a youngster I was exceptionally lucky that my parents valued sport and encouraged me to try everything and anything just to be active! Unfortunately not all kids are given such opportunities to explore all sports so I am proud to support the Triathlon Trust, as we enable kids to be active and try new sports, possibly even inspiring a future generations of Olympians and Paralympians!
"A personal highlight of supporting the Triathlon Trust is attending mini-tri events, and watching the excitement and determination across every child's face as the complete their own triathlon! Shiny, bright red faces that always ask to do it again and again- there's nothing more satisfying.
"Another aspect that I love about the Triathlon Trust, is it is solely focused on our future generations, to inspire them, to encourage them and to let them experience what the world of sport is actually about- enjoyment!"
