YOUNGSTERS flocked to Malvern Triathlon Club's youth try a tri day.

Malvern St James School hosted the action for 27 eight to 13 year olds from local schools.

They had done a seven-week training schedule with the club's youth leadership team of Graham and Nadine Croney, David Dutton, Wayne Gualter, Cathy Harbron, Dick Watling and Stewart Whitehead.

The culmination of their efforts was the try a tri day with a swim of between 50 and 300 metres in the pool followed by cycling and running two laps of the school's sports field.

All athletes received a medal.
