We are very, very, very excited to announce that Pro athlete & coach Paul Hawkins, winner of last years Outlaw 70.3 and regular feature on Xtra Mile events podiums will be joining us on our Xtra Mile event Race Workshops.
Paul has triathlon and fitness running through his veins and has has been a competitive athlete throughout his life. He was a competitive swimmer in his early years and converted to Triathlon in 1999 whilst training to become a Royal Marine, Paul served in combat for 5 years representing the Royal Marines and Royal Navy in swimming, cross country and triathlon in between operational tours.
On leaving the Royal Marines in 2005 Paul qualified as a personal trainer and fitness coach and regained his interest in triathlon. By the end 2007, Paul was crowned Welsh Olympic distance champion, UK amateur national rankings champion and qualified for the Ironman 70.3 middle distance world championships in Florida. Pauls first international Podium was in 2012 in only his second season as a Professional Athlete finishing 3rd at Ironman UK with a top 10 pro in Ironman Wales finish only weeks later.. Injury slowed him down for a few years but he's back on form and has an exciting 2015 ahead of him including the Xtra Mile events series.
With Pauls first hand experience of the Xtra Mile events and his coaching skillset he couldn’t be better placed to give you the knowledge & confidence you need for your race.

- Swim, bike, run course walkthroughs - Bike & run out on the course - Transition training - Race Day Planning
