On Sunday 14th September 20 youngsters took part in a Children’s Disability Triathlon held at David Lloyd Leisure in Gosforth.

This event was the first Children’s Disability Triathlon to be held in the North East region and the children were lucky enough to have the expert advice and coaching from Paralympian Gold Medalist Swimmer – Josef Craig.

The children chose to take part in a Swim 25m, 50m or 100m, Bike 1km, 2km or 4km and Run 200m, 500m or 1km to raise funds which will pay for the additional therapy they will be receiving at Heel & Toe Charity, Pelton.

The Event was a huge success and was covered on BBC Look North, Tyne Tees News and The Evening Chronicle.
