Adam Bowden

Adam Bowden enjoyed success across various distances during the 2018 and 2019 seasons. Making the transition to longer distances, ‘Bowds’ was victorious on his middle-distance debut at Challenge Roma 2018 before finishing seventh at the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship the same year. He followed that up with his maiden 70.3 win in Dubai in 2019.

While now proving his durability, Adam also showed he has maintained his speed from his ITU World Triathlon Series days, where his best finish was a fourth at Leeds 2017, by winning the Elite Champs for Triathlon (Sprint) and Duathlon in 2018.

Adam’s favourite discipline is the run, and it is easy to see just why. Before turning to triathlon he was an international runner in road, track and cross country, specialising in the 3000m steeplechase as he won the 2008 British National Championship and Olympic trials.

Bowden sought a new challenge after 2008, turning his attention successfully to triathlon. He was soon accepted as a member of the trigold programme, British Triathlon’s talent identification programme.

Adam’s most painful experience in the sport so far came during a race in Šamorín when he was forced to stop three times for energy gel just to finish the event, describing himself as “completely spent” after completing.

His training group includes fellow British triathlete’s Iestyn Harriet, Josh Lewis and Sam Wade and he is often seen in his favourite training location in Portugal. To get in the mood for training, and racing, Adam listens to Eminem as his hype music.

His favourite cheat meal, although he suggests it is not cheating at all, is steak and chips and Bowden also admits he can’t live without chocolate. He is a big sports fan outside of the triathlon world and particularly enjoys boxing.

Adam says the best advice he has received so far is: “Enjoy what you do, give it 100% and never give up”.
