Event description

Description

From the BBC Breakfast sofa, to representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships: Dare to Tri is TV Presenter Louise Minchin’s incredible story of perseverance and triumph. We’re delighted to have Louise joining us in store for an evening of discussion with Matthew Syed.

“I didn’t even know what a triathlon was before 2012… When I took up the sport I didn’t imagine for a second, then, that, one day, I would be able to represent my country internationally”

Beginning with a fun BBC Breakfast cycling stunt in 2012, Dare to Tri charts how a newly discovered sport became, for Louise, a passion and then an obsession, culminating in Louise’s first tentative steps as a triathlete. An adventure not without its challenges as Louise battles to overcome personal nerves, brutal training regimes and the odd bike crash, Dare to Tri is a warmly written, honest, and inspiring book full of warmth and ambition.

“Louise’s amazing journey to becoming a triathlete encourages us all to be a little more adventurous.” – Dame Darcey Bussell

Matthew Syed will be chairing this discussion with Louise. Matthew is the author of three acclaimed books: Bounce, Black Box Thinking, and, most recently, The Greatest. He is a leading columnist and feature writer for The Times, and a trustee of Greenhouse Sports – a charity that empowers people from disadvantaged communities through sport.

Please join us for what promises to be a both fascinating and inspiring evening.
