The PURPOSE Podcast 13: Richard Farren & Sophie King

The PURPOSE Podcast 13: Richard Farren & Sophie King

They were both working in Singapore, each pursuing a passion in triathlons. They had mutual friends who thought they would have made a great couple, but with a stroke of fate, it was Tinder that brought Richard Farren and Sophie King together.

It didn’t take long for their relationship to blossom as their triathlon journey merged as one. After a few months, including Sophie winning her age group at Ironman 70.3 Xiamen under Richard’s guidance, they made the decision to resign from their respective jobs and return to the United Kingdom to embark on a year-long process to turn pro.

It’s a big dream but one that they have to try, or they will regret forever. They have also started Tri2, a triathlon coaching service.

Listen to this episode on how they met, how they arrived at this decision and the plans ahead – only on Spotify here.
