Marshalling the Kids York Triathlon
The Kid’s York Triathlon is a joy to behold. Entrants range from 5 to 16, and the commitment and determination on the faces of the competitors is quite remarkable, perhaps especially the youngest ones.
A number of York Rotarians have been helping with this event for several years, and we always look forward to it as a really satisfying afternoon. We are greeted with welcome arms by the organisers, who really do appreciate having us there, and reward our efforts not only with free bacon sarnies and drinks when we arrive (with alternatives for the veggies) but also with a significant donation to our Charity Fund.
The event lasts from 1.00pm until about 3.30, and the time seems to fly by, because it’s very busy once it starts. So if you haven’t previously been involved, perhaps next year? The photo above was taken at the end of the event and you can see that we are still smiling!
My grateful thanks to this year’s great team for all their efforts!
