Meet Your 2024 Swim, Bike and Run Captains

Our captains are here to support and encourage you over the season, so don’t be shy to ask them any questions you may have via the VTC app or in person at a training session.


Name: Rachel Hall

With gills in her genes and fins on her feet, she’s been swimming since she could rock a rubber ducky.

Her happy place? Anywhere wetter than a sponge in a monsoon! πŸŠβ€β™€οΈ

It’s all about fun and being a tube of toothpaste!

BIKE CAPTAIN πŸš΄πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Name: Nick Christian

When Nick’s not dressed as a Christmas tree on a Naughty Elf ride, he enjoys long rides with ET and calling home.

Nick has loved anything on two wheels since he threw his stabilisers away at the age of four.

That includes racing motorbikes back in the 90s before turning back to mountain biking.

Nick turned to road riding in 2014 and joined Viceroys Triathlon Club the same year.

Nick loves riding, quite enjoys swimming . . . . . . . hates running!

As far as he is concerned, it’s all about having fun with likeminded people. And if that helps you with your training plan, even better!

Nick’s mantra:
Nick: “Never show weakness”
Also Nick: “Wait, hang on, where now?”

RUN CAPTAIN πŸƒπŸ½β€β™‚οΈ

Name: Chris Williams

Chris first joined Viceroys back in 2014 as having two young kids in the house who wanted to play all the time quickly exposed how woefully unfit he had become. 

Chris comes from a background in swimming as a youth, followed by some running to keep fit but that had tapered off in his late 20s so was essentially starting from scratch. 

Of course this coincided with the post 2012 cycling boom which he discovered he loved, so combining all three was the logical choice. 

“I’ve regularly competed in events covering all three disciplines and in full triathlons up to Olympic distance and usually found a number of Viceroys taking part for encouragement and logistical support. 

“This club and its members have supported me in my goals and now I’m here to help others with theirs.”
