Ruthin Recap - Welsh Junior Race Series Stage 2

Published:

Sunday 5th May 2024 saw athletes head to Ruthin for the second round of the Welsh Junior Race Series, sponsored by Coracle Coaches. The race was held at Ruthin Leisure Centre, which provided a pool swim followed by a tough technical grass bike and run circuit to test the athletes!

Despite the recent wet weather, North Wales brought one of the first warm sunny days of the year and with it, an extra challenge for the athletes to battle the unusual heat!

Athletes across TriStart, TriStar 1,2 & 3 as well as Youth and Junior categories raced in Ruthin. Those in TriStar 3 had the added incentive of racing for a place on the Welsh team for the Inter Regional Championships (IRC’s) later this year. This added an extra level of competition to an already fiercely competitive race and really tested the athletes across all three disciplines. Selection to the team will be announced in June.

It was great to see a lot of our Welsh Junior clubs represented across the day, wearing their club, Welsh IRC or Welsh Triathlon Academy kit with pride.

There were some impressive performances throughout the day, and it was great to see another race in the Welsh Junior Race Series go so successfully! To view the Series' results from the day, please click here. 

A huge thank you to Mark Hannant and his team of volunteers at Ruthin Tri Stars for hosting such a great event!

Thank you once again to Coracle Coaches for their sponsorship of the Welsh Triathlon Junior Race Series.
