However, we are all able to take part in the Windrush Virtual Aquathlon.
What is this? I hear you ask...

While triathlon is predominantly an outdoor sport that allows athletes to exercise in the fresh air, the message to all of us is clear, we must play our part in containing the spread of COVID-19 and keeping others safe whilst thanking those who are already!

The coaching team have been discussing creative ways to keep us active, look out for these soon. In the meantime…Continue
