Our regulars

Richard Campbell

Rich is the man behind Beyond Going Long and is an avid supporter of British and Irish long distance triathlon. Having set the site up in February 2012, he has been responsible for overseeing it’s growth and direction into what you read today.

Despite being a less than impressive triathlete himself, you can find Rich racing mostly middle-distance triathlons and marathons across the UK, as well as at most of the iron-distance races and events when he covers them for the site.

Aside from sports writing and competing himself, Rich has a background in marketing communications and is always happy to talk to those within the sport about marketing their products and working within the triathlon community.

James Mitchell

Based in Lanzarote, James is primarily a photographer with a passion for sports and triathlon. He is well known on the Lanza circuit, having conducted numerous shoots and videos with professional triathletes as well as working with events organisers around Europe. He also works on the new Danish title, Triatelen.

James is a regular contributor of photography and race reports for the site and keeps us up to speed on what is going down in Europe.

Bethan Fowler

Beth Fowler – PRO contributor

Beth is a second year pro with a bright future competing over the long distance in triathlon. In her debut year as a pro, she picked up 5th at Ironman UK, 4th at Ironman 70.3 Galway and 7th at Ironman Wales. Despite racing so effectively as a pro, she does all this whilst balancing her time with a job teaching and also doing some writing for Beyond Going Long!

This year, as well as racing hard, Beth will be providing us with regular, valuable insight into the life of a professional triathlete, her races, the kit she uses and much more. If you have any questions for her please do not hesitate to contact us and we’ll quiz her for the next article!

You can contact Beth and find out more on her website.
