About Us | Just Racing UK

So why should you put your trust in us?

Our starting point is always ‘would we like to take part in this event?’  If it’s a yes, we develop the initial concept into a planning and engagement phase to make sure we can do what we think we can and that others will like what we like.  By the time we get to race day, we have a dedicated team of people with a shared vision of exceptional athlete care and event delivery embracing equally both beginners and experienced athletes to our event experience.

We know the stuff you see is important; quality event marshals, plenty of clear signage, detailed and accurate event information, well stocked feed stations, an amazing finish line experience and great event mementos.  But sometimes it’s what you don’t see that’s the most important part of delivering an exceptional event; competent event build and de-rig teams, traffic management plans and teams, local community engagement, exceptional first aid provision, appropriate support teams (bike mechanics, sweep vehicles, water safety, race control and event officials) along with strong partnerships with key stakeholders and local community groups.

Over the last 19 years we have delivered a lot of events, including pool based triathlons, open water triathlons at all official distances, trail runs, road runs, cyclosportives, kids triathlons, experiential events and duathlons learning a lot over this time.  I’m pleased to say we are still learning and continue to evolve our events, giving athletes an even greater experience.

We look forward to sharing one of them with you soon.

TESTIMONIALS

What some of our athletes have to say

John D

“After 4 years as a cyclist and many events, this was my first tri and it was one of the best organised and most professional events I’ve done. The marshalls were all really supportive, couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks again.”

James F

“Great event yesterday; I can remember doing this event years ago with only about 400 competitors and it has now become so popular.  And thanks for a great season of consistently well organised and enjoyable events – I entered nine!”

Richard A

“It was a cracking event and those in charge were superstars, all. Conditions for you guys were far more horrid even than those for us! It is very much appreciated, though – and I can’t wait to enter more events of yours.”

David T

“I would like to express my thanks to all those involved in yesterdays Squires & Spires Sportive, if there is such a thing as a perfect sportive this event was as close as it gets, perfect weather, lovely course and very well organised.  I’ll certainly be back next year.”

Louise B

‘Just wanted to pass on my thanks for a superb event today; well organised, attention to detail and fantastic marshalling throughout. I struggled with my asthma on the swim and had to tread water for a while whilst I recovered my breathing. The canoe marshalls were very attentive and although I was determined to continue I knew that the support was there should my condition have deteriorated. This meant a lot!  Please pass on my thanks to all concerned.’

Jane C

“Just a quick line to say thanks for a great event, a really professional but friendly approach and everyone gave lots of encouragement.  Despite the hills i will be making this a must do event for next year.  Thanks again and looking forward to next year already.”

OUR TEAM

Just some of those that make it happen

PROFILE

Alan Rose

Founder and big cheese at JRUK.  Race Director for all of the events at some point including IRONMAN 70.3 Weymouth.  If he’s doing nothing then the event is going well.  Favourite events to race are IRONMAN 70.3 Triathlons, but takes part in all distances of Swim, Bike and Run events around the World.  Used to be a Secondary PE Teacher and in the Royal Navy.

The Rose Girls

You’ll tend to find Lucy looking after areas that involve people, which generally means registrations and finish lines.  In her spare time she teaches Primary School kids and takes pride being the best runner in the Rose household.  Since birth the Rose girls have been helping in all areas of the events with ever increasing responsibility.  In their spare time they study, do CrossFit and keep fit and active.

Ruth Wildman

Ruth has been with JRUK for about 15 years and has done most things, including race director for runs, sportives, pool based triathlons and kids events.  You’ll find Ruth running, meditating, cycling, down the gym and prepared to take on any challenge.  In her spare time, she does a bit of nursing too.

Hayley Howard

Our Admin Superstar!  If you contact us outside of event weekends, you’ll probably be talking to Hayley.  At the events, she could be anywhere from registration, admin, social media, timing, on course or hiding in a coffee shop!  In her spare time, she has been known to do quite a bit of running and visit numerous gin bars.

PROFILE

Rob Bing

Rob has been with JRUK for over 12 years and in that time has done pretty much everything; lifted stuff, packed stuff, moved stuff, set stuff up, took stuff down, pointed, shouted and race directed triathlons, bike and running events.  He’s done loads of IRONMAN and long distance events and finds it remarkably easy making friends with animals.

The Burgess’

They come as a pair!  One lifts stuff, puts stuff up, takes stuff down and moves stuff again.  The other one lets him and gets involved in more athlete service based stuff.  ‘Big Tone’ fixes stuff runs marathons and takes part in Cyclosportives. Susan likes to include coffee and cake in her cycling and sporting endeavours.

Trudi Knight

Trudi has worked across most areas of our events, so you literally could see her anywhere.  And she’s just got the World Record for fastest marathon on crutches which rocks and is going for the half marathon World Record in September!  

PROFILE

The Chapmans

Meet the Chapmans.  Outside of the events, one of these does the JRUK design work, another offers both HR and legal counsel, whilst at the events one is our youngest marshal, the other works in athlete services and one tends to take part – it’s hard keeping track of their exploits outside the events, but it tends to be lots of events and challenges.  One is faster than the others,  but i suspect not for long!
