Secretary: Tom Gethin

Tom is an I.T. Professional.  Originally from Scotland he came to NZ 6 years ago for a change of lifestyle and pace.  Tom has done both IM NZ and Challenge Wanaka so he know’s all about the commitment and reward of going long! Although currently injured, his return to triathlon is imminent as he looks to do some Half’s in 2018. If you need advice on NZ’s best wine tasting locations, Tom is your man!

Treasurer: Pat Carden

Our lovely treasurer Pat is an accountant at JBWere. Her preferred triathlon distance is sprint, although she has a solid Ironman to her name and is also starting to enjoy trail running. When not training Pat can be found doing DIY on the house and cuddling her kittens – awwh!!

Nicole Youman

Nicole is the Coaching and Talent Development Advisor at Aktive – Auckland Sport & Recreation. Nicole’s first exposure to triathlon was through the ACT beginners programmes, but before that she was a very handy Hockey player. She is still deciding on her preferred triathlon distance, but at this stage it’s probably Olympic Distance
When she’s not training Nicole will probably be eating or sleeping – We’re feeling ya’ Nicole!


Sam Kettle

Sam is returning to university to study commerce, having already completed a bachelor of sport and recreation. He prefers standard distance racing but is tackling his first Half Ironman this summer. When not training Sam likes to chill our and relax. He is also a bit of an aeroplane geek which makes long rides past the airport highly entertaining!

Tracey Livingstone

Tracey is a process improvement specialist, so it’s no wonder she’s the one we go to to make everything better! Her preferred triathlon distances are Sprint and Ironman (yeah we don’t understand it either!), and she has ventured into the bike racing scene for the first time this season. Fun fact about Tracey – she owns a power pole!

Phillip Seys

Phillip is a Production Manager/Designer and enjoys Standard distance triathlons. When he’s not training you’ll find Phillip eating , or with the Coastguard , or both..

Nicola Sproule

Nicola is a Financial Manager and total event junkie! She enjoys Half Ironman and running events, and has ticked both Kona and Challenge Roth off her ‘bucket list’. She says that when she’s not training you’ll find her drinking wine at the beach. However, we all know that the only time Nic isn’t training is when she’s doing yet another epic event!
