A great turn out last week on a blustery and very cold Sunday and the VeloPark. It was amazing to see that these unwelcome conditions didn’t put off the next generation of duathletes who raced their socks off around the mile circuit in East London.
ELT hosted the race alongside English Triathlon representatives, with volunteers marshalling the far reaches of the course, managing registration, co-ordinating the race as well as briefing the young tri stars to make this a very successful event.
Their were races in age groups ranging from 7 years to 16years which saw boys and girls competing against each other in this run-bike-run challenge. Distances varied depending on age group and was great to see so many smiley faces crossing the line to collect their medals.
The future certainly looks bright for these young hopefuls.
