OUR STORY

MEET THE TRIBE

Gemma & Martin – Founders and Directors of Tribal Sports Events. Between us we create, design and deliver a selection of superb sports events in Sussex. Both of us come from a background of Events and Logistics. We know what a good event looks and feels like.

GEMMA

My background for the last 10 + years has been in Events, Logistics and Project Management. I have a love for sports: running, swimming, basketball and crossfit. I have taken part in many events throughout the UK and Europe ranging from Marathons to Ultra Marathons.10km Open water swims to local OCR events.

I am a qualified Children’s Fitness Instructor and am highly passionate about young individuals and their ‘wellness’ in body and mind. I organise regular fitness sessions and bootcamps for children aged 7 years + focusing on functional fitness with an aim to lead, challenge and inspire.

Psychology is my other passion. I am intrigued by human development, behaviour and emotion. Currently studying for my Bsc Honours in Sports Psychology. I seek to understand the psychological factors that aect the behaviour of individuals, teams or organisations in sport, and how lifestyle issues can influence wellbeing and performance.

MARTIN

My background has been in construction, logistics and project management. I have spent many years as a keen mountain biker, but now I have moved across to the dark side and become an enthusiastic ‘Roady’ with an unhealthy love for ‘lycra’!.

A few passions of mine, as well as Road Racing, I also love to compete in Triathlons, Marathons, Ultra Marathons and Obstacle Racing. I completed my first Ironman in Tenby, Wales in 2017.

Together we bring you Sports Events full of a community like no other, attracting ‘like minded’ athletes. A family united by a desire to succeed.
