First race for Reading Rascals Junior Triathlon Club members

Reading Rascals got their first taste of competition on Saturday 26 October when they raced each other in a mini-triathlon.

Altogether 18 children took part in the event at Bulmershe Leisure Centre in Woodley, first completing the swim section in the centre pool, then quickly jumping on their bikes and then finally running for the finish line.

This first race gave them a taste of what it’s like to compete in triathlon and they had a fantastic time. After all, the Brownlee brothers started out at the same age as some of our members, so you’re never too young to have a go!

The winners of Saturday’s mini-triathlon were:

Under 14 Girls (200m swim/2.5k cycle/1500m run)
Grace Mitchell 21:05

Under 12 Girls (150m swim/2km cycle/1000m run)
Verity Wilson 14:48

Under 10 Girls (100m swim/ 1.5km cycle/500m run)
