Penzance Junior Aquathlon

Mounts Bay Harriers are organising the sixth Penzance Junior Aquathlon on Sunday, 10 July 2011.

Any boy or girl who is aged between 8 and 16 as at 31 December 2011 can take part.  The age group they will be competing in will be their age at the end of the year (31/12/11) not on the day of the event, ie. If they are 12-years-old on 10 July 2011 but their birthday is later in the year then they will be competing in the 13-14 age group.  This will be the same for everyone.

The swim is in Penzance Leisure Centre’s pool and the run is traffic free on grass and footpaths.  The first age group will enter the pool at 9am. Registration commences at 8am.

Please ensure that an adult’s email address is entered on the entry form as there will be no race packs sent out by post this year, everything will be by email.

The closing date is Sunday, 3 July 2011 – please get your entries to me by this date so that I can work out everyone’s start times.  There will be no entries on the day.

The entry fee has been kept the same as last year.
