Lockdown hasn't stop Just Tri Junior Triathlon Club members from getting the miles in.

A large number of the budding triathletes recently completed a number of different challenges throughout the month of June.

The youngsters have been running and cycling over the last few weekends to try and keep in shape and maintain fitness levels. Family members have been joining in too, in an attempt to complete a series of challenges as the mileage increased each weekend.

"Children had to share their routes and distances once completed," explained club coach Sion Jenkins.

"It started with a one mile run and five mile bike ride, increasing to a three mile run and 10 mile ride the week after.

"The following weekend saw the athletes run five miles and cycle 15 miles and the final weekend saw them complete a duathlon, either in one go or over the duration of the weekend.

"It concluded with a three mile run, 20 mile bike and one mile run."

Overall, 12 members completed all of the challenges, alongside siblings and family members. Around 30 youngsters of varying ability took part in total, and completed the allocated mileage.

And coach Jenkins is ensuring there will be no resting on laurels. This month (July), his charges will attempt to run 26.2 miles, the equivalent of a marathon. As a club, the aim will be to compete all the stages of the Tour de France, which will mean collectively clocking up over 2000 miles.
