Bio...

Katie Hewison (nee Ingram) was originally recruited to triathlon through the trigold talent identification scheme. She has been personally funded by Barrie Well to make the transition from elite runner to elite triathlete. She is now supported as part of the UK Sport Lottery funded World Class Programme. She trains in Chorley under coach Paul Roden.

Katie was the 2009 Commonwealth mountain running champion, and is a former county level swimmer. Her transition to triathlon has seen her finish inside the top twenty over all in the ITU World Triathlon Series in 2013 and achieve a top ten finish in Kitzbuhel. She won an ITU World Cup event in Cancun in 2012.
 
Katie won the ITU World Duathlon title in Gijon in September 2011 in a close race with Germany's Jenny Schulz, who had taken the lead in a tight race, only to be overtaken in the last 50m by a fast-finishing Hewison. In 2014 she won the individual and team gold at the ETU European Duathlon championships in Weyer, Austria.
 
Katie is a former student at Loughborough University, having graduated with BA joint honors in English and Sports Science, so moving back to the area meant living somewhere familiar when she was recruited to the trigold programme and relocated back in Loughborough.
 
As well as being invited to join the trigold programme in 2009, Katie also won Deal or No Deal on TV.  “I actually applied as a bit of a joke and didn’t really expect to get on, but I did and everything fell just right. I filmed the show two months before I had even heard about trigold.”
