We have introduced a biking element for the children – giving rise to our Jnr Triathlon for them to take part in. We have also moved the event to the Sunday to take advantage of the timing equipment that will already be in use for the adults, so you will be getting full race splits for swim/bike/run and the transition times too.
Another change – we have decided to split the age categories into boy & girls so there will be double the awards this time round – we are also offering an overall winner over both events – check out the Special Award 🙂
Our event is run within the safe environment of the Southam Leisure Centre and Southam College. A fun and fitness event starting at 1pm (exact scheduling may change depending on the amount of entrants) for both the Spring & Autumn events, organised for junior Triathletes of all abilities and experience.
Registration is open from 2:3pm to 5:30pm on Saturday or after the Adult tri event from 11ish to 12:30 on the Sunday beforehand – you will receive your number then.
Please allow enough time to register and set out your equipment in the transition area, bikes will be hung on the racks after the adults event has cleared away (roughly 11:00am).
Entry closing dates are 1 week prior to the event.
The entry fee is £20.00
The swim is held at the leisure centre pool (no backstroke, no tumble turns and no diving) – the bike and run will take place around the College playing fields near to the leisure centre.
The bike should be a cyclocross or MTB (or any bike suitable for grass!)
The Jnr Triathlon distances are determined by age and the event is open to 8 – 14 years old as of 31st December 2022.
