The annual Kirkham Grammar Junior School Charity Triathlon was held at Kirkham YMCA Swimming pool and Preston Sports Arena athletics track and cycling circuit on Saturday 27 April. Storm Hannah caused the cancellation of many events but KGJS pupils and staff are made of sterner stuff! Over 30 pupils and staff took part in very difficult conditions and the school hopes to raise over £700 for Brian House Children’s Hospice. The day started early with an 8am meet to complete the swim section which was 10 lengths of the pool. Next it was over to Preston Sports Arena for a 3 mile cycle and a 1 mile run. All participants wore a special t- shirt for the event which was very bright indeed but created a fantastic sight during the event. After the event everyone received a medal for their efforts which was a fantastic achievement from our 11 and 10 year olds.
