Entries open for kids aquathlon

Entry is now open for a kids aquathlon which is taking place at Buxton Pool and Pavilion Gardens on Sunday March 24, from 8am.

Organised by High Peak Triathlon Club, the event is open to children between the ages of eight and 14, who will swim and run a set distance determined by four age categories.

A club spokesman said: “Although it is anticipated this inaugural event will appeal to children who already have an interest in swimming and running, all entrants however will be made most welcome for what should be a great experience.”

All competitors will receive a participation medal and small goodie bag, while the four age group winners, male and female, will each be presented with trophies.

Entry to the Buxton Aquathlon is £10 per child.

Entry forms and full details about the event are available from Buxton Pool or via the club website www.highpeaktri.org.
