Honiton Leisure Centre Launch First Junior Go - Tri Event
Honiton Leisure Centre on the 25th March 2018 hosted their first Go-Tri Event, this event is perfect for children who want to give a triathlon a go for the first time and we hosted an aquathlon.
We had 27 children who were split into 3 age groups 8 years, 9-12 years and 13+. 8 year olds had to complete a 50m swim followed by a 600m run. 9 – 12 year olds 150m swim followed by a 1.2km run, 13+ 250m swim followed by a 1.8km run.
The weather was perfect with bright sunshine, the ground still a little muddy from the recent weather but all the children taking part flew around the course and had a great time. We have some serious talent in Devon, just watch out in the future for some of these children.
Due to the success Honiton Leisure centre is teaming up with Pure Endurance Triathletes and will be looking to host another Go-Tri the day before the Honiton Adult Triathlon in July.
