Pendle Junior Triathlon 2016

What a 'reet good doo' !!


It was such a blast seeing everyone come together and have fun over the weekend. On the Saturday we had 23 Pendle Tri Juniors splash, pedal and legit around the course, which ranged from 20-400m Swim, 400 - 1200m Bike, 400 - 1200m Run !


Breakdown was: 12 x under 8s, 6 x Over 8s, 3 x Over 10s, 2 x over 12s.

All the kids and parents walked around the bike and run route before the race started, so some of those distances were doubled!

Our youngest was just 3 years old, and did the swim with a foam tow from the bank! Inspirational stuff!!


The level of giggles, smiles and parent participation was high, cowbells deafening, and great to see so many PTC Members supporting some very gifted young athletes - future stars in the making!


If you have any thoughts about what worked / could be done better, please let us know.

It would be great to get 2017 organised on the back of the bow wave of the weekend!


Massive thanks to Ash St.John-Claire Ian Barnett, Lucy-anne Cowgill and Fiona Callaghan for their support and enthusiasm over the last few months, and to Ryan Atkinson for taking on the Turbo sessions, Joe Duffy for the timely smiles and all of you for making Saturday just brilliant!
