Rebecca Walker - Athlete Ambassador

Shop Sundried's Triathlon Collection

Have you always been into sport?

I started running at a very young age and was in all of the sports teams at school (Cross Country, Athletics, Hockey and Rugby). I was lucky to represent Bristol in the Mini London Marathon twice at about 12 years old and I played in the National Women’s Rugby Sevens. Fortunately when I joined the RAF, sport was a huge part of my life.

How did you first get into triathlon?

I started Triathlon when I was in the RAF because they used to run 'Try a Tri' which was great fun because it was during work time and you were able to get out and just try it in a fun environment against the other stations.

If you are interested in getting into Triathlon, Sundried's kit is suitable for beginners as well as seasoned athletes. We have both men's and women's options available.

What has been your favourite race to date and why?

I run a lot and London Marathon 2017 will always be my favourite because I was selected to represent the RAF, I achieved a marathon PB and I also achieved my RAF colours for representative sport. My mum who is my biggest supporter came to watch and I remember high-fiving Darren Campbell on Embankment when he was commentating.

What is your proudest achievement?

Being selected to represent the RAF in distance running at London Marathon as one of 5 females.

Have you ever had any racing disasters?

My derailleur snapped in an RAF triathlon and I came off which wasn't ideal because I was in the middle of nowhere on the bike course and had to carry my bike back to the start.

How do you overcome setbacks?

I used to really dwell on bad races and feel quite down, but now I remind myself of all of my achievements (5 Ultra Marathons and 8 Marathons) and set goals to focus on.

What advice do you wish you'd been given when you first started out?

Enjoy it and don't put so much pressure on yourself. When you relax you actually perform better!

What are your goals?

I would love to keep improving my running times and one day I would love to qualify for GB age group in Triathlon. IronMan is also on the cards one day!

Who inspires you?

Flora Duffy inspires me. I met her when she was 18 and I was working in Kelly College where she went to school. I have followed her journey and watching her win Gold at the Olympics was so incredible.

Why work with Sundried?

I love the brand, it is stylish and affordable. It also features the most advanced technology on the planet, which has been created ethically and sustainably.
