Derby-Huub Junior Triathlon 2015

The Derby-Huub Junior Triathlon took part at Woodlands School in Allestree on the 28th June and was a huge success with 300 youngsters taking part, including most of the DTC junior membership!

This event is part of the 2015 East Midlands Junior Triathlon Race Series and saw competitors aged between 8-16 take on distances from 40m/800m/600m to 400m/7km/3km. The event is a major date in the calendar for DTC, the only one fully organised and run by the club, so it was great to see many members helping out on the day, despite the inclement weather.

The race referee Mike Masters , said that it was the best race venue he had attended for youngsters, transition exceptional and worthy of a higher profile. A fitting tribute to all the hard work.

Tom Bishop made the trip down from Leeds especially to attend the triathlon, both to pose for pictures and also to answer many of the questions he was asked about triathlon and what it was like to represent Great Britain, making the day extra special for the youngsters.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank those who helped marshal and to all the youngsters taking part who made the day a great day.

Well done to all those who took part and the link for the results is: https://www.derbytriathlonclub.co.uk/news/2015-derby-huub-junior-triathl...
