Getting Aquathlon ready!!!

Last night’s training involved getting outside. The juniors and a few of our adult members braved the unseasonably cold weather to practise their pool exits and swim > run transition in readiness for our upcoming aquathlon. If you haven’t got your entry in there is still time Richmond Aquathlon Our aquathlon is a Yorkshire Series Event and is one of 10 regional races that form the Regional Junior Series.
