Will's Product is...
As a professional athlete it’s very important to me to keep regular tabs on my blood markers. Sometimes you need to find out as quickly as possible the reason why you might be under performing in training and racing, and what you can do to solve it. Edge offer a very quick and convenient service and translates the results into numbers we can all understand all for an affordable price.
Olympian and World Champion are two titles Will Clarke can claim, alongside numerous Ironman podiums. His career began in 2002 and he has consistently made his mark in the triathlon world ever since, establishing himself as a talented long-distance athlete. His performance has seen him take sub-8 hour times on three separate occasions, including a career best 7hr45 at the 2018 Ironman North America Championships.
Will made his triathlon debut in 2002 as an elite junior racer and has been a well-known figure in higher ranks of the sport ever since.
In 2006 he took the Under-23 ITU world title, and was selected to compete for Team GB in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. 2012 saw a move to longer distances and he won a number of Ironman 70.3 medals including silver at St. Croix, Lanzarote, South Africa, San Juan, Barcelona and Calgary, plus gold at Ironman 70.3 UK and Lanzarote.
The distances were upped again to full Ironman in 2015, and Clarke has provided three sub-8 hour performances including a 7hr45 time at the 2018 Ironman North America Championships in Texas.
Clarke’s immediate race plans include the London Marathon plus a number of domestic and European events.
What is your pre-competition meal?
My breakfast is usually porridge and banana with a bottle of isotonic.
Favourite music for motivation?
I listen to all music but I love dance music, especially when I’m gearing up for big sessions.
What is your go-to treat?
I don’t limit myself really, I eat what I want most of the time but I also like to eat clean so then it doesn’t have to be a treat.
What Superhero would you be?
Spiderman. If I see one of my competitors get away from me I can throw a web over them.

I have a very keen interest in human physiology and with my background in Physiotherapy and sport science, I am keen to invest in the technical side of adaptation to ensure my training is maximised. Edge is a key component of my training plan as the tests provided will enable me to see the tangible improvements from this one aspect of my heavy endurance training programme.
100mile TT National Champ, 1st IM70.3 Tallinn
In 2019 I overtrained and ended up with an excessive inflammation injury whilst training for an Ironman. I needed to take a long hard look at my preparation. Edge helps me identify when I’m pushing too hard, when I need a rest, or when I can still maintain the training intensity. As a result, I’ve managed a 3rd consecutive PB in my IM races and hit the start line feeling 100% ready – a very rare thing indeed!

Without good health, consistent and sustainable high performance isn’t possible. With the support of Edge it is great peace of mind knowing that my biomarkers are in check and really gives me confidence to begin to push on with my training. It also gives me areas to focus on and improve if any areas are in need of a little boost! I have started using the Triathlon test, which provides me with both a comprehensive and detailed analysis of my biomarkers.
