Introducing Pro Off-road Triathlete Penny Slater

Hi Everyone!

My names Penny Slater I’m 21 years old and I’ve just finished racing my first year as a professional triathlete. Last year I mainly focused on off-road triathlons as I absolutely love mountain biking! But this year I’m combining my season with off-road stuff and some 70.3 races. Last year my best result was being crowned ITU U23 Cross Triathlon World Champion and placing 5th elite female as well as placing 3rd Elite female on the Xterra Asia tour.  When I’m not racing and training I study a Bachelor of secondary education and love to spend time with family (dog included!) and surfing when I can. 

Up until I was 17 I competed at national and international level for equestrian as well as nationally for Hockey. I picked up triathlon in my last year of school and haven’t looked back! I’m so excited for the upcoming year as I have an actioned packed race calendar taking me to most corners of the world!

Penny's Race Schedule for this year:

- February: husky long course and crackenback off-road triathlon.
-March Xterra Albay Philippines and potentially a local race at home.
-April: Xterra NZ, Xterra Cebu Philippines (Asia pacific champs) and Xterra China.
-May Xterra Tahiti and port to port stage mountain bike race.
- then over our winter I will most likely travel to Europe and do ITU cross tri worlds and European Xterra Championships.
- August 5th 70.3 Asia Pacific champs Cebu Philippines.
-October 29th Xterra World Championships Maui
- Noosa tri (just for fun!)
- Challenge Shepparton
