Tanya Deeks: Competitive Coach and Competitive Athlete.
Tanya Deeks is a great local coach,
but what does she do for fun?
In the process of getting an answer,
I learned a lot. She’s competed
in Nordic ski races, triathlons,
marathons, and mountain bike races,
including seven Ironman races (3.8k
swim, 180k bike and 42.2k run).
In 2011 she raced the notorious
“Leadville 100 miler” mountain bike
Her competitive drive comes from
her dad who competed in alpine
ski races into his early 80’s. She
grew up with skiing, soccer, figure
skating, and excelled in dressage &
eventing equestrian sports. Her love
of equestrian competition brought
her success nationally and ended as
university and a career got in the way.
