Group F

Tristar 3, Youths and Juniors (Born in 2006 or earlier)

Group F is for members who’s main aim is to develop their personal fitness and skills levels, or for younger less developed members who are not yet ready to train with Group C. Whilst many members of this groups may not compete in triathlons, they will be encouraged to do so either individually or as part of a relay team 

Group F train for two hours from 8.30am to 10.30am on Saturdays during school terms. From Sept 2018 the group is for those who were born in 2000 to 2006 inclusive who will race in either the Tristar 3, Youth or Junior age groups in 2019.

The aim of the group is develop the members fitness, strength flexibility and skill levels associated with triathlon. Training sessions will be less demanding than Group C but will still push members out of their comfort zones whilst retaining a fun and social element. 

Tim Wright is the Group Leader and can be contacted at GroupF@waldenjnr.co.uk. Tim is supported by Ben and Paul.

You will find details of how to apply to join Group F on the membership page.
