The 'Tri' stars of the future were on show at Carew Business Park on Easter Saturday.

Around 100 athletes took part in the second ever Carew Airfield Junior Duathlon and it proved to be another great day for entrants and spectators alike.

For many involved, it was their first taste of multi-discipline racing while others were using the day to kick-start another season of competing. The duathlon also served as a great warm up for athletes about to start competing in the Welsh Tri Stars series, which is organised by Welsh Triathlon.

There were five races altogether, kicking off with a fun Duathlon, followed by TriStart (age 8), TriStars 1 (9-10), TriStars 2 (11-12) and finishing off with TriStars 3 (13-14). The distances increased for each age group, making it more challenging for the athletes. The biggest challenge of the day however was the sun, which was blazing down and made it extremely tough to run and cycle. 

The day was organised by Just Tri Junior Triathlon Club who train on a weekly basis in Tenby.

Any child who is interested in joining can visit the club Facebook page for further details.

"A big thank you to all parents and marshals for giving up their time to assist on the day," said Sion Jenkins, coach at the Just Tri Junior club.

"Our next event will be the Pembroke Junior Triathlon which is being held at Pembroke Leisure Centre on Sunday, July 21st."

The Carew Airfield Junior Duathlon was sponsored by Harbour Wealth, Tenby, which allowed all athletes to receive a gym bag and a finishers’ medal and tshirt for their efforts.
