Gardiner Richardson are proud sponsors of One Life Racing for the fourth year running.
We're eagerly anticipating the junior triathlon in Hexham this July. It's a great introduction to the sport for 8-16 year olds, and a fun day out for the whole family.
We're really pleased to be part of One Life Racing's Junior Triathlon again this year, which we've been sponsoring since 2013. If you're local to the Hexham area there's still time for your children to sign up – the triathlon takes place on the 17th July.
Based at Wentworth Leisure Centre, the event begins with a swim in the pool, followed by a fun, technical bike route on the adjacent car park, and finishes with a run on the adjacent athletic track. Participants are placed into the appropriate age category, with a ‘Diddy Duathlon’ for siblings younger than 8 years (this year we are hoping there will even be a diddy swim).
Our own Lucy Gardiner will be there with her three children who take part every year: 'it's very friendly and a great first triathlon' she says. It's a super accessible event and includes paratriathletes too. For the Diddy Duathlon, little ones are encouraged to scoot, bike, skip, run and use their imagination to make their way around the track.
Look out for the Gardiner Richardson t-shirts on the day – what colour will the design be this year?
