Personal Life & Achievements
Kelvin has 2 children: Beth and Jamie and his interests include Triathlon & Trail running.
Kelvin's introduction to endurance sport came in 1998, when it was politely pointed out (by his then girlfriend's father) that he was an overweight lazy Englishmen and had 4 months to get fit to do the Cape Argus 105km cycle ride around Cape Town, South Africa. Given a rather heavy mountainbike to train on and an old copy of Tim Noakes - Lore of Running (to learn about endurance sport). He was subsequently told to "just keep riding! Completing this first ever event in 4:06, (and beating his girlfriends father on a much better bike) he found he actually enjoyed the hardship of training and also the fact that the additional body-weight came off. After several local 100km cycle races and a 1000km cycle tour from Bloemfontein to Cape Town, it was fair to say that he was hooked on cycling and training. On returning to the UK, he took part in Hampshire Fire Brigade annual South Downs Way 100 Mile Mountainbike event placing and although non-competitive placed 3rd in 7:20.
Over the years since, Kelvin has completed trail marathons and numerous trail and road half marathons and completed the entire calender of The Endurancelife Coastal Trail Series in 2015/16, a 10km lake swim in the glacial lake at Lyn Paddern, Wales, the Red Bull 25 hour TimeLapse cycle event, multiple short and long distance Duathlons and Triathlons, including several half and full Ironman distances. In 2019 Kelvin will compete at Ironman 70.3 Germany, the Endure 24 - (24hr run event) and the "Round the Rock" 48 mile ultra marathon, running around the coastline of Jersey.
Kelvin is one of those rare people that does not own a TV, and therefore spends most of his free time either training or reading about sporting technique. Kelvin races Triathlon for Precision Race Team and cycles with local cyclists - The White Hart Vueltas. He has previously competed for Southampton Triathlon Club, VC Venta & Hardley Runners. He has support crewed friends through both The Enduroman double & triple Ironmans and will this year support crew another friend on his 1st UK Deca Ironman.
