however if you are willing to volunteer as a marshall then please email James Shipley and include the name, gender and age of your child as at 31/12/2016 and your child’s entry fee will be waived (do not enter via the website).
Whilst it is not a league event it will provide an ideal opportunity for kids to try open water triathlon this year and is a great opportunity for those entered into the Discovery open water triathlon 17July to practice.
Sean (Tri-Force Juniors Head Coach) will be running some open water training before the event (each coach is limited to taking no more than 8 kids). The training will probably be at Merchant Taylors or Denham Lake dependent on wet suit availability – Denham do hire wet suits.
If your child is interested in doing open water training then please email Sean (Head Coach) with your child’s name and indicate whether they own a wetsuit or not.
