TRiKS Lakeside junior triathlon

16 Jun 2019

Organiser's Description

New for 2019! Are you bored of swimming pools but a bit apprehensive of open water?

The TRiKS Lakeside Junior Triathlon is the perfect opportunity for all mini-triathletes (novice to the seasoned pros) to take the plunge into open water swimming without river currents and with the comfort of the "Lakeside" being close to hand at all times.

Wetsuits are compulsory (and will be available for hire) at this specialist shallow open water venue adding an extra layer of safety for both the swimmers and their nervous parents. The cycle and run take place on a flat, and fast, grass track, located adjacent to the lake, perfect for spectators.

This event is promoted by TRiKS, whose members will be there on the day to give advice and cheer you on. It also forms part of the West Midlands Junior Triathlon League (TS1, TS2 and TS3); so come along to collect your points.
