1:00pm Saturday 29th September 2012 in News
Young athletes are being urged to sign up to a junior triathlon competition being held in Skipton .
Organised by Craven Energy, the day-long event will take place next Saturday, October 6, at Craven Pool and Fitness Centre.
Declan Hayes, Craven Energy chairman, said: “We’d already had quite a lot of inquiries from children and their parents about junior triathlon training and then the Brownlee brothers became national names with their fantastic achievement at the Olympics. We’ve seen a huge surge of interest and are delighted to be holding our third junior event so soon after the Olympics to give children the chance to emulate our heroes.”
The event will feature three races for age groups eight to nine, nine to 11, and 12 to 14.
Entry will be £10 to £15, depending on age. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for a form.
