After getting the bug and taking up triathlon only 5 years ago Anita Howe has competed for the GB team in her age group since 2015. Although a Northbrook member, work commitments and a heavy training schedule with the DO3 squad means she's not often seen at the Wednesday session but she runs in the club colours when she can.
In May Anita won her age group and became National English Champion, finishing 3rd overall. Competing in Weert, Netherlands in June Anita won in her age group and became European Champion.
