Well done to all those who took part in the third WaldenJNR Triathlon. Many thanks to Walden Capital for their generous sponsorship and to all the volunteers who made the race such a success. We hope to be back in 2018 if we can find a suitable venue to hold the race.

2017 Results

Many thanks for attending our event. We had a record entry and were delighted that the children taking part had a great time and raced to such a high standard.

Final results can be viewed via the above link. Of the 304 starters, there were 295 finishers, 9 disqualifications due competitors not completing enough bike laps and 2 withdrawals during the race. 

We hope will will be able to find a venue for the 2018 WaldenJNR Triathlon following the recent announced closure of the Walden School in July and if  so we hope to see you again there.

2017 Event Information and Timetable

We have slightly amended the timeable to allow some more entries. The main change is that the Tristart age group will be racing immediately after the Youths and Tristar 3 competitors have completed their bike section. There will is also a change to allow Youth competitors to collect bikes after the last Youth competitor has completed the bike stage at approximately 10am so that those with exams can leave early to revise!
