**** CVFH Triathlon – Saturday 16 December at Dean Close School, Cheltenham – for full details of the schedule and entry form, head over to our competition schedules page ****

Tetrathlon is a fun and challenging discipline, comprising shooting (with an air pistol), cross-country running, swimming and riding  cross-country.  It is well-supported in the Cotswold Vale, with a strong group of riders of all ages taking part in training and competition, with several members going through to compete as juniors at regional level and higher.  In previous years, we have had members competing at the Pony Club Championships.

During the winter months, competitions do not include the riding element, and become triathlons.  Some competitions offer ‘tiddlers’ (under 8 years old) a chance to run and throw bean bags (instead of shooting), and ride a very small enclosed course. ‘Tadpole’ classes are also run for 8 & 9 year olds with the shoot, run and swim the same as the ‘minimus’ class, but the ride is under 60cm.

A proud day for the Vale – Tetrathlon PC Champs
Congratulations to Lottie Roberts for achieving 11th place out of 86 competitiors in the Junior Girls class at the Pony Club Championships (Tetrathlon held in Yorkshire) this year. After day two, after her shoot and swim, and with a superb cross country round, Lottie was 38th. Day three and a storming run pulled Lottie right up the placings to 11th – just out of individual placings but a remarkable achievement. We’re very proud of Lottie!
