Home / Testimonial / Athletes / Mark Pellew


Mark started started doing triathlons in 2009.  What appealed to him was the fact that the sport involved more than one discipline and he really felt challenged.  As an amateur sportman, he works hard to balance his job at an investment bank, his family and a gruelling training schedule, so early mornings and late nights are a frequent occurrence.  The hard training pays off though and he usually looks forward to races and feels pretty relaxed on race day.   He believes that the most important attributes for a successful athlete are dedication, a love of the sport and most importantly a positive mind set, especially in a sporting discipline which includes three disciplines and where during races you sometimes have to open the “hurt locker” to cross the finish line.  His past achievements include coming in the top 20 overall in 2 Iron Man competitions in 2014 (South Africa and Florida) in in both cases coming 1st in the 40-44 age group.  He also completed the Iron Man South Africa 70.3 in South Africa in 2014 coming 19th overall, the 1st amateur and 1st 40-44 age grouper.  So far in 2015 he has completed the Iron Man South Africa coming 12th overall, the 1st amateur and 1st 40-44 age grouper.  His future aspirations include winning the Iron Man World Champs in Hawaii, Kona and to be one of only 10 South Africans (all others are or have become professionals) in Iron Man history of 35 years, to achieve a Sub-9 hour Iron Man race time.   His top training tips include: 1) it’s important to maintain consistency in training; 2) Rest & Recovery; 3) Having a correct training & taper plan (prior to race day)  and; 4) properly plan & consider race strategy for the day.  When it comes to nutrition he recommends carbo loading correctly prior to the big day, making sure you take in enough nutrition and electrolytes (hydration) during the race and drinking recovery drinks afterwards to speed up/assist recovery.  Follow him on Twitter at #MarkPellew or like his Facebook page “Mark Pellew”
