Kids aquathlon event being held in Buxton

High Peak Triathlon Club is hosting a kids aquathlon at Buxton Pool and Pavilion Gardens next month.

The event, taking place on Sunday March 24, is aimed at children between the ages of eight and 14 and will see participants swim and run a set distance determined by four age categories.

No previous experience is necessary and there will be plenty of help on hand to assist novice competitors.

All competitors will receive a participation medal and small goodie bag while the four age-group winners, male and female, will each be presented with a trophy.

Full details and an entry form can be collected from Buxton Pool or downloaded from the club website at
