The TriProject Team

The core team spend a lot of their free time organising each event. We are passionate about what we do and are incredibly lucky to have many loyal supporters and helpers. Allow us to introduce ourselves and tell you why we do what we do.

Race Director

Having joined South London Harriers it wasn’t long before Matt could not resist signing up for a triathlon.

Armed with his mountain bike he headed off for the Crystal Palace triathlon, despite all his rookie errors he was bitten by the bug! A lot of lycra and carbon fibre later he managed to win a national age group Olympic distance and cross country triathlon title.

Having competed in a huge number of triathlons Matt is proud to be part of the Tri Project Team and putting all that experience to good use. 

Race Director

Ben started racing for Poole Tri Club in 2000 while living in Dorset. Following a move to Surrey, Ben joined South London Harriers.

For the next 5 years, he chased but never caught Matt Chapman! Realising it was never to be, he moved into long distance and has raced many long distance triathlons since. His passion for racing has never changed which can be seen at all our races!

After joining her local running club, South London Harriers (SLH), to meet people with similar interests, Beckie found that she became rather addicted to training and went from strength to strength. Finding that she preferred the muddy cross country races, Beckie was very excited to gain a place on Surrey’s Cross Country Team. 

Having met the trathletes in SLH, Beckie agreed to take part in a local swimming event for charity with her club mates and before long had signed up for her first triathlon! She was hooked, swimming and cycling were included in her training plans and she finally added a place on the GB Age Group team to her running achievements. 

Having taken a bit of time out to have Baby Ellie, Beckie really enjoys being part of the Tri Project team providing events for like minded people.

Lee was first introduced to Triathlon in 2003 when working as a personal trainer in Brisbane, Australia.

Her first triathlon was Byron Bay Olympic triathlon and, like most first time triathletes, she lacked the proper gear, mostly in the way of a road bike and no clip in shoes. Since then Lee has competed in many triathlons from sprint triathlons up to Ironman.

Her love for the sport, along with her husband Ben Pearce, has lead them to become part of Tri Project.

You will certainly be in safe hands at the Tri Project open water events as Martin and his team at Swim Safety cover all our events.  

As the UK’s leading provider of water safety the team have worked at many high level such as the ITU triathlons, the Common Wealth Games and the Olympics!  

From left to right we have Mike, John, Tim and David, our trusted team of excellent photographers that are not put off by the early starts!  

The team have supported us from the beginning in providing our competitors with some great photos of them racing to keep as a momento and share with friends and family.  

If the lads are not behind the lens of a camera they can be found on a bike clocking up the miles around the Surrey Hills.  

The Tri Project Team at work!

There is a huge group of people that are involved behind the scenes to help us lay on the events. Time and time again we are overwhelmed with the amount of people that are willing to give up their time to come and help out. The events would not go ahead without the support of so many so we would like to say a big thank you!

The Tri Project Team out Racing

We are a group of friends that once enjoyed the odd run, however, a few years ago we entered our first race and it wasn’t long before it all became ridiculously competitive! Willing to give any form of racing a go we have competed in everything from sprint distance triathlons to mountain marathons. We have always enjoyed the team events but take every opportunity to race against each other in solo events as that is when our competitive streak really comes out!
