Border Triathletes Junior Aquathlon

09 Jul 2017

Welcome to theBorders Triathletes Junior Aquathlon

The Junior Aquathlon is organised by the Borders Triathletes Club with support from Durty Events and Borders Sport & Leisure Trust. This event is a swim followed by a run with the running taking place on traffic free paths. To prepare the kids for the Aquathlon all competitors have the opportunity to come along to coached training sessions prior to the event ensuring everyone is ideally prepared as possible for race day.  

When: Sunday 9th July 2017.

Where: Selkirk Swimming Pool, Victoria Park, Selkirk, TD7 5DN. 

Time: Registration is from 11.00am-11.45am with the race starting at 12.00pm

The swim/run distances and fees are determined by the age of the competitor. The age group the competitor belongs to is determined by the age of the competitor as at the end of December 2017. This mirrors Triathlon Scotland age group rules.

For example on 9th July (race day), the competitor is 8, if the competitor turns 9 by the end of the year this competitor belongs to the 9-10 age group.

Additional Junior Aquathlon Coached Training Sessions

New to Aquathlon? Interested in learning or topping up your swim / run / transistion skills? The Borders Triathletes coaches are holding 3 additional training sessions in the weeks leading up to the race. These 1 hour coached training sessions will be held at Selkirk Pool at 6pm on the following dates:-

  • Tuesday 20th June

  • Tuesday 27th June

  • Tuesday 4th July

For the purposes of insurance all non-members attending the training will be required to join the club, this is a one off charge of £6, you can do this by clicking here or you can make payment in cash when you turn up for the 1st day of training. Membership to the Tri club will ensure you get updates on future events and are eligible for any further training. Each junior will also have to pay standard pool entry fee for each swim session. Payable at the swimming pool desk.

There is no need to sign up for these training sessions, it is possible to just turn up on the day. However if you are definitely coming along then it would be useful for the club to know in advance so if you could email Katrona Methven, Borders Triathletes Junior Development Officer using email address  then that would be helpful.

Borders Triathletes organise 3 Junior events throughout the year, MTB Duathlon at Bowhill (May), Aquathon in Selkirk (July) and a Triathlon in Galashiels (September). All events can be found on Entry Central.
