Sandwell Junior Triathlon 2021
27 June 2021
A children's/youths open water and closed road cycle triathlon. Open water lake swim, followed by a closed road tarmac cycle circuit and a run circuit on pathways within the country park. Possibly the only British Triathlon sanctioned event of its type. The children/youths not only get to swim free from plant life in a beautiful country park lake with an excellent ramp exit but they actually race on a proper highways road (not footpaths) which will be fully closed to traffic. Put another way this event has evolved over a number of years into what could now best be described as "an adult type course for children and youth distances". All the excitement in a great location!
There is also an under 8yr siblings scootathon. You requested in your feedback and we did it. A parents/juniors wave (max 25 places) intended for those children who have become to old to compete anymore as well as parents.
