We hope you enjoy this slideshow of photographs from the fantastic triathlon event last week!
48 children from KS2 took part from Dunnington but over 1200 pupils from across the city were involved throughout the day. They started in the pool swimming 75m, went quickly to their own clothes basket and put on their t-shirt and trainers. A quick exit of the side door, whilst handing their basket to a member of pool staff and then onto 800m of biking round a slalom course on the grass. Once completed they ran 300m to a glorious cheer and a well-deserved goodie bag and a bottle of water.
All the children demonstrated great resilience and had huge smiles on their faces as they took part. They cheered each other on in between mouthfuls of popcorn, whilst recovering and were a pleasure to take out of school. There was roughly 8 minutes to get changed in our allotted time slot and the girls narrowly beat the boys! Many thanks to the parents who accompanied us to ensure things ran smoothly. I hope we might have a few keen future triathletes in the making after gaining an insight into this amazing event.Mrs Rowntree
