The Junior Aquathlon kicks off with the swim in the purpose built watersports lake at Allerthorpe.
For some, this will be their first opportunity to take part in an open water aquathlon and it may seem a little daunting, but our support crew are there to help put the children at ease, so that they can enjoy and experience the fun atmosphere.
The water safety cover provided will ensure the children are safe throughout their swim.
Our aim is to provide the same high standards that you would expect from any Freebird event, allowing children, no matter what standard they are, the ability to participate in this fun and exciting sport.
Having completed the swim, the children head into transition, swim done and just the run to go.
Staying within the grounds of Allethorpe Lakeland Park, the run heads out around the lake. Depending on the childrens age group, they will complete one or more laps.
The run is on hard surfaced, well maintained tracks. As the children complete each lap they are able to pick up a drink if they wish to do so.
After completing their final lap, they will pass under the finish gantry to the cheers from the many supporters watching the event.
A great achievement for youngsters to complete their very own aquathlon and a great way to introduce them to the sport.
