Customers young and old were put through their paces at Melbourn Sports Centre on Saturday 22nd September, by taking part in a selection of free activities including Go Karting, Boogie Bounce and Archery, as well as a Free Family Swim and promotional displays from Melbourn and District Photography Society and Slimming World.
The main event of the afternoon was our mini duathlon and triathlon races organised in conjunction with Meridian Triathlon Club, where over sixty children aged between 4 to 13 years braved the wet conditions to compete against each other in scooting or cycling, running and swimming.
This year’s event saw the return of our Scootathlon & Bikeathlon races, which proved very popular once again. “It was great to see so many children – and parents! – being so enthusiastic about trying new activities,” said Graham Johnson-Mack, Melbourn Sports Centre manager. “After another brilliant duathlon and the success of our first junior triathlon, we’ll be looking forward to hosting more. Great fun was had by all!”
A massive thankyou to all the companies that donated prizes towards our Tombola, and to the members of the Meridian Triathlon Club, for making all three events run smoothly on the day.
