We had not run this event for a couple of years and this year it was run by a new organising team. It was with some trepidation that all the helpers arrived on Sunday morning to set up the course and registration area ready for the arrival of the eager young athletes.
Everything started well when the sun was shining and the good vibes continued throughout the day with everything being in place prior to registration opening.
We kept the number of athletes to a minimum on purpose and in hindsight this was a good move, we had all but one entrant register so had thirty three children competing across three age categories.
All went well with all the waves and thankfully there were no accidents or mishaps and all the athletes returned safely to the finish area, that’s not to say the competition wasn’t fierce with a good few sprint finishes and a dead heat for second place in one of them!
We would like to thank all the children for their good sportsmanship before, during and after the event, along with thanks to all the volunteers who made the day a success.
We look forward to welcoming you all back next year.
