Sport Relief Junior Duathlon at Paddington Recreation Ground

Twenty local kids had an exciting and active start to their half term break, running and cycling on a crisp February morning, when they participated in the first ever Junior Duathlon at Paddington Recreation Ground. The event was part of a wider effort by the Centre to raise funds for Sport Relief. The Better Athletics team were also looking to try something new, with this event acting as a gauge for potential future events of a larger scale.

The competition was a run-bike-run event with juniors competing in two age groups. Both age groups started by running two laps of the athletics track (800m), followed by a smooth transition onto their bikes. The competitors then rode 4 laps (1600m) or 8 laps (3200m), depending on their age. The race concluded with each child running one final lap (400m) to the finish line. Each child was presented with a medal upon completion.
