Dougal Allan has been competing in endurance sport since 2006. Initially, it was his own learning from an honours degree in Physical Education that helped him produce his training. Naturally it was time to start working with a professional coach. Exercise physiologist Val Burke coached him from 2009 until 2017. Val took Dougal to a new level in endurance sport. As a result he has enjoyed successes across various sports all over the world. Highlights include standing on podiums in triathlon and adventure races in Europe, Brazil, China, Australia and Canada. Dougal’s favourite place to race is New Zealand (including 2x Challenge Wanaka Champion and course record holder and 5x podiums in the famous Speight’s Coast to Coast).
Dougal has big goals for the coming years. These include continuing to be a consistent performer across the international triathlon and multisport stages along with winning races Ironman distance events. As proud as he is of his achievements so far – at 32 years of age he believes his best years of racing are still ahead of me.
