A SERIES of Try a Tri sessions are being held for children in the build-up to this summer’s Alnwick Kids Triathlon.

The classes will be held on the first Sunday of each month, starting on April 1, leading up to the July 8 event.

They will be based around bike skills, such as control and transition practice.

Children under the age of 15 can attend but youngsters under eight-years-old on the day of the session must have a parent or adult guardian present, who will be responsible for the child throughout.

The sessions run from 4.30pm to 5.30pm, meeting at the entrance of Willowburn Sports and Leisure Centre, Alnwick, and participants need to bring suitable clothing, a bike, helmet and trainers.

Each session will cost £1 per child and will be led by British Triathlon Level 3 Coach, Paul Jones.
