Seven children from Clavering Primary School took part in the WaldenJNR vs. Cambridge Tri triathlon race on Saturday 3rd May at Friend’s School, Saffron Walden. The race was hard and challenging but enjoyable at the same time. Everyone tried their hardest and have done themselves proud.
There were some amazing results from 3 age groups. In the youngest age group Tristart (year 3) we had three competitors. Millie Denyer who came first, Freddie Wardle who came second. Unfortunately, Max Sanderson didn’t come in the top three but came home after trying his best with a good result.
The next category was Tristar 1. Alice Donker finished her race with a strong run and her end result was good. Also in this age group was Elliot Wood who finished first after a great cycle and run.
In the third age group (Tristar 2) we had two competitors. Amelia Donker, did a speedy swim and transition and Daisy Collett ran extremely fast with a sprint finish making her a pleasing fifteenth out of thirty one.
Former pupils Helena Dyce came 1st in her group and Lottie Dyce and Ella Hall both did well competing in the Youth group.
For the first time in five years Walden JNR won the practice race against Cambridge Tri due to everyone trying their best.
