Hello all.

The 2017 edition of The Leighton Buzzard Triathlon is at 12:00 on Saturday 8th July based again at Tiddenfoot Leisure Centre, and will have age groups from 8 years old up to 16 years old (age as at 31st December 2017)  The Entry Central web portal will be open for entries as at 6am on Wednesday 1st February, so if you have youngsters of appropriate age straining at the leash to get out and race, then please do not delay in signing them up, it will cost a mere £20.00

Once again the event is part of the Triathlon England Eastern League so expect high class competition on the day.

The event, which is now in its 5th year has a justifyable reputation as a very friendly,  well organised event and most of all a thoroughly enjoyable event for the children to take part in. This is in no small part down to all the effort that you as club members put in on the day, and others who put in work over the coming months as part of the organising committee, and I hope that all volunteers get a great sense of satisfaction out of seeing the smiling faces of the competitors on the day and knowing they helped out in some small way.

Thus please put a note in your diary for the 8th July that the only place you can be is Tiddenfoot. ALL help on the day is greatly appreciated, even if you can only spare 1 or 2 hours, and if you can help out on the committee in any way then please contact myself. I promise meetings are kept to a minimum throughout the next 5 months before the event, so your time committment is minimised.
