On Friday 29th September a group of children were invited to attend a Triathlon Event at Charnwood College.
The event was set up by Alistair and Jonny Brownlee so they could give something back to the community as they attribute much of their success to people they met as youngsters around schools, clubs and events.
The children were able to try disciplines of the triathlon. They all swam in the pool, cycled approximately 800m on grass and ran 300m. Bikes, helmets and swimming caps were provided and every child received a t-shirt to wear during the event as well as a medal and goody bag when they crossed the finish line.
Jonny Brownlee very kindly posed for a picture with the children and also signed their t-shirts.
The children had a fantastic time. They really enjoyed the event and returned to school full of excitement.
