the committee is a team of volunteers from a range of different backgrounds but with the common goal to support the club and its members. We are a growing club looking to provide the right level of training and club events so that every member can take part and enjoy the experience. The individual roles within the committee are documented below.

Pat Garland

Chair

I've been a member of the club for nearly 10 years and chair for the last 4. I'm a very active member of the club and enjoy taking part in as many club events as I can.  It's a great club and we pride ourselves on being friendly, supportive and having some fun! Over the last few years, the club has grown from strength to strength and even through the Covid lockdown, we worked hard to engage with members. We've now got the biggest membership in our history with nearly 200 people belonging to the club!

Vice Chair

I joined the club a few years ago when I started training for my first middle-distance triathlon. Being surrounded by so many like-minded people has really helped me on my journey. I have joined the committee to provide support for those who might need it and to give a little back.

Lindsey Kestle

Treasurer

I’ve been into running and triathlon for the last few years and will compete in anything from sprint to Ironman, 5km to marathon just for fun!

I’ve been trusted to hold the PAC-Tri funds as Treasurer as I’m pedantic and love a spreadsheet.

Club Captain

I joined the club in 2018, after having a hip replacement I wanted to try and reduce the amount of running I did and still be challenged. I thought triathlon might be a good fit and I wasn't wrong.

 During that time I feel I have taken a lot from the club and its member so, on reducing my workload I thought it was time to give something back.

As club captain, I am keen to see we are inclusive of all athletes whatever their aspirations, to complete an iron man or a super sprint or just keep fit using swim bike and run.

Jenny Ford

Secretary

My background is as a runner, but like many others, I switched to triathlons for better all-round fitness and in the hope that somehow I would be better at triathlons than I was at running. Unfortunately, I was wrong! 

I've been doing triathlons for 10 years now and I'm more of a completer than a competitor, but I've done everything from sprint to half-ironman distance. I love the club for its friendly atmosphere in welcoming all abilities, ages, and interests

Kit manager and Club Tri organizer

I moved to Portishead in 2006 and having done no exercise for many years due to kids, laziness, and all the usual reasons. I joined Pac Tri in an effort to improve my fitness. The club has taught me to cycle and run. I organise the club TT and Hilly TT as well as in 2022 joining the committee to help with the kit.

I have been a huge fan of sport and running all my life but only got into triathlon after having my second child in 2012. I am one of the club activators running regular run sessions and have recently taken on the role of club secretary

Communications

I have been a member of the club for the last few years and involved in triathlon for a few more on top. Started off as a challenge to raise some money for the British Liver Trust and caught the bug for it from there. I have started entering some more challenging races, usually involving some hills, to keep raising money for charity. I joined the committee a year or so ago to try and help with communicating all we do
