Katie is a member of Nantwich Running Club with whom she completes her training and race preparation. 

She has been selected for the Team GB squad at both the European Duathalon Championships in Bilbao in September and in the World Duathalon Championships in Ibiza in 2023.

Duathlon is an athletic event that consists of a running leg, followed by a cycling leg and then another running leg in a format similar to triathlons.

Mike Stevens, Founder of Nantwich Running Club, said: “Katie is a fantastic asset to our club and she is having a spectacular season. Her dedication and hard work in training are delivering exceptional results this season.”

Nantwich Running Club was launched in March 2021 by Willaston runner Mike Stevens and now has over 400 members.

The club meets at Nantwich Town Football Club and members train in small groups of ten people for up to sixty minutes every Monday and Wednesday evening at 6.30pm.

There are eleven chatty pace groups, each supported by a Run Leader, who follows an organised route ranging in distance from three to seven miles each session.
