Who i am

Background

Melanie McQuaid

Professional Triathlete
4x World Champion

I am a professional Ironman triathlete, writer, coach, and speaker.  I have raced as a pro athlete in four different sports and am proud to hold titles in mountain bike endurance, cross country and short track; Olympic, Sprint and Half Ironman triathlon; and offroad XTERRA and ITU Cross Triathlon.

I love being outside, pushing my limits and chasing seemingly impossible dreams.   I have been to 23 World Championship events – I would like to add one more with the Kona Ironman World Champs.

My favorite part of racing is the opportunity to engage people.  I have a lot of years of experience in all varieties of media including television, radio, print and online. I also have enjoyed many public speaking opportunities at race clinics, in boardrooms and at large corporate events.

I love the creative side of marketing and along with branding/managing my own career, I have created an age group triathlon team and  a professional women’s mountain bike team.  I love working with clients creating fun strategies to inspire and engage our audience.
