TETRATHLON, TRIATHLON, BIATHLON – MINIS TO SENIORS 

NEW MEMBERS ALWAYS WELCOME

PLEASE CONTACT NICOLA PLATTS on nicola_platts@yahoo.co.uk

If you can run (distance varies depending upon age group but starts at 1000m for the minis), swim for a minimum of 2 mins (minis can wear a flotation aid) (time again dependent upon age group) and throw a bean bag (minis) or shoot at a target then this just might be the competitive sport for you …

 I appreciate that most of you will not know what is involved, so I have included a very brief overview below.

Age Groups (boys and girls compete separately):

Open (21 and under)

Intermediate (17 and under)

Junior (14 and under)

Minimus (11 and under)

As well as Tetrathlon events, which take place in Spring and Summer, the Pony Club also runs Triathlon events (run, shoot, swim) during the winter. These are a great opportunity to have a go  and see whether Tetrathlon might be for you. Triathlons also tend to have classes for 7yrs and under, with the shoot being substituted by a bean bag throw.
