The BSM Youth National Championships took place on Sunday 4th August in glorious sunshine. What started as a perfect day just improved as the time passed. The warm, calm blue-flag lake and beautiful sunshine promised what was going to be one of the best race days at Loughrea, Galway.
After months of preparation and a weekend of hard graft the action started at 10:30am. There were four separate youth races for juniors of all abilities ranging in age from seven to fifteen. Swims varied from 50 metres to 300 metres, the cycle varied between 2, 4, 6 & 9 kilometres and the run from 500m to 3km. All age groups were well represented by clubs from all over Ireland. The event is orgainsed by Predator Triathlon Club and it is the seventh time they have staged this Triathlon Ireland sanctioned youth event.
BSM are delighted to be sponsoring such a prestigious event and where the children show such enthusiasm, determination and potential.
