Sunday 23rd September will see the Bedford Junior Aquathlon return to Robinson Pools and Fitness and Bedford Park.
An Aquathlon is a combined swimming and running event, and is held twice a year in Bedford with children from school years 3- 11 welcome to take part.
There are five age categories; with year 3’s challenged to swim 66 metres and a 600 metre run all the way up to years 10 and 11 students swimming 400 metres and a 2.8km run, although these may change slightly.
Cllr Sarah-Jayne Holland, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said “The 25th Bedford Junior Aquathlon took place in May this year and saw over 130 young people take part and compete. This popular event is a great chance to get the whole family out, show their support and enjoy what’s sure to be a fantastic event in Bedford Park.”
Entries close at 5pm on Tuesday 4th September.
