Kate Hutchinson - My Triathlon Journey

Kate Watson

Marketing Assistant

How Did Your Triathlon Journey Start?

"I started triathlon in 2021 after the lockdown left me with big cabin fever, and I was eager to get outside and explore the countryside on foot and two wheels. Since I started, I’ve become greatly involved in Age-Group racing: I am currently a British Triathlon Ambassador, and I have raced all around the country and internationally in the 30-34 Age Group Category."

What Has Been the Pinpoint of Your Career? 

"My first notable success in the sport was qualifying for the 2022 Age Group World Championships in Abu Dhabi. I raced, not expecting anything, and came 3rd (1-second off silver) in my age group and 5th woman overall. Pentest People supported me during my 2023 season, and it turned out to be a successful one, despite some niggling injuries and equipment mechanicals along the way."

"Across three qualifying races, I achieved three Age-Group wins, and in two of these races, I achieved top female overall, which was a massive goal of mine."

What's Coming up Next in 2024? 

"As a result, I have qualified for the European Standard, World Standard and World Sprint Championships next year! With Pentest People's support, I hope to exceed this year’s achievements in 2024 by obtaining gold in my age group at the British and World Championships."
